  • Hare and Tortoise one of Aesop s Fables adapted by Alison Murray The first thing I noticed upon entering this book was the wonderful artwork contained inside The humorous charm of the characters complimented the bold use of color and the simple but effective landscapes When I read this book to a group of Kindergarteners, they were mesmerized by the contents of its pages There are so many versions of this fable and many of them get off track from the original but this one stayed true while incorp [...]


  • i like it when my mom reads the books to the stories i already know then i can pretend i m reading with her she likes it when i tell her stories i learned about the hare and tortoise story from watching barney age 5




  • A fun retelling that includes a scale of how many tortoise tootles make up a hare hop, and a chart about hare and a description of the 2 contestants.


  • Nice twist on an old tale Lovely illustrations Great dialogue and narration Kids will love this one Highly recommended for Gr K 3.


  • I once heard Dave Ramsey say that a billionaire recommended this book not necessarily this edition as indispensable for getting ahead financially.




  • Wonderful retelling for the younger kids Clear, simple illustrations direct, specific storyline with just enough detail to be interesting but not too much to clog the main idea.

  • This picture book is a retelling of the classic Aesop fable The story is much the same with the added tantalizing feature of a carrot patch to get Hare to slow down and eat and then take a nap As always, Tortoise simply walks along, not zipping at all Hare awakens from his nap just that critical second too late and misses winning by a hair The entire book is wonderfully accessible and readable with humorous touches added like diagrams of both Hare and Tortoise and their advantages and disadvanta [...]


  • My favorite version of the Aesop s fable The Tortoise and the Hare This read aloud friendly title reads like watching a play by play of a huge sporting event I liked the in depth look at each racer that helped solidify their characterization and supported the game day approach to telling this story as it read very much like the player profiles that are common features of major sporting event coverage.The inside front and back covers features a map of the race which was very clear and appealing T [...]


  • With every race there is a chase Even if the contestants begin on equal footing there will be a constant shift in pace as strategies dictate First one party takes the lead, then another moves ahead Predictions will be made naming one as the possible winner Sometimes it s so close only the final seconds will reveal the victor.One of the oldest known races in literary history is found in a collection of stories, Aesop s Fables In The Hare the Tortoise the animals leave us with than one point to p [...]


  • A nice retelling of the fable This one has a terrific diagram of the tortoise and the hare, which will set the reader up for understanding the ending.


  • My 18 month old loves this book He drags it out for re reading all the time Love that it has variation in text sizing and layout makes it good for text awareness and also encourages adults to change their reading style to make interesting Details are also easy to add or skip to change it up for those multiple readings.


  • This is a brand new book about the legendary race between the Hare and the Tortoise While I enjoyed the story, I found myself wanting a little from it I love the original story, so maybe my hopes were a little too high for this book This was book was fun to read, it was enjoyable, it just did not measure up to the original standard.

  • This is one of my favorite retellings of this fable It has a fun and mischievous feel, and readers will enjoy looking at the map of the race on the endpapers Also unique are the in depth profiles of the two opponents Good edition for reading to large groups because of the large and colorful illustrations.


  • June 2016 a great version of the fable The endpapers show a map of the race, and Ben loved tracing the path and naming the various things along the way Vivid enough illustrations to use for storytime.


  • Some lovely and creative additions to this Aesop fable I was particularly tickled by tortoise tootles on the endpages and the Latin names gives the Hare Leapus swifticus and Tortoise Slow and steadicus Rich colors and subtle details in the illustrations add even to the story.




  • My daughter liked this adorable retelling of the classic story from my childhood The illustrations are bright and colorful perfect to keep younger kids attention Would recommend.


  • A fun retelling of the Aesop fable, with large, engaging illustrations and text that is suitable for reading aloud Using for storytime


  • During much of this story the story is told on pages which have the hare s exploits on the top and those of the tortoise on the bottom This is highly effective The illustrations are quite charming.
