This book is about a hare and tortoise that are competing in a race. The hare is sure he is going to win, but he doesn’t know that the tortoise will soon catch up. This is a great book to read when talking about predictions. In 1994, the Brian Wildsmith Art Museum was established in Izukogen, a town south of Tokyo, Japan. Almost one and a half million people visited a traveling exhibition of his work in 2005.

The Tortoise and the Hare" is one of Aesop's Fables and is numbered 226 in the Perry Index. The fable itself is a variant of a common folktale theme in which ingenuity and trickery (rather than doggedness) are employed to overcome a stronger opponent. The story concerns a Hare who ridicules a slow-moving Tortoise. Tired of the Hare's arrogant behavior, the Tortoise challenges him to a race.

The race is on - the fast running hare against the tortoise, who moves very slowly and carries his house on his back. In a flash the hare is away, flying over the grass. But the tortoise has hardly moved. Who do you think will win?
  • My granddaughter was having a second birthday and the theme was turtles. I was looking for a suitable book to read to the kids and I think this one was just right. There was just enough text and the wording was suitable for toddlers. I was very happy with purchase.

  • beautifully illustrated

  • The best retelling ever and beautiful illustrations--fun. The world he creates pulls you in for hours of close examining--and a nice price!

  • This book overall was fine...except for one page. The illustrations were a little out there, but whatever. The problem page has text that reads "The cock offered to start the race. The spectators stood back, and the cock swelled up ready to give the signal." Anyone who wants to read that to their kids should buy the book. I returned it.

  • This is a well-told rendition of Aesop's fable about The Hare and the Tortoise, based on the poetic version written by Jean de La Fontaine. In this story, a tortoise challenges a hare to a foot race, and because he patiently and persistently walks to the finish line, while the hare stops to eat and take a nap, the tortoise wins the race.

    Wildsmith's paintings are colorful and busy with detail, and his unusual use of perspective renders this story quite pleasing in its visual aspect. The tension builds pleasingly to the surprise ending.

    In selecting stories for children I try to minimize those with explicit moral lessons like this; but Aesop's Fables are so important in Western literature, and this one in particular is so well-known, that it is very nice to have a well-illustrated version.

  • The book The Tortoise and the Hare is a great book for children to read. Most books for children this age are non colorful and are not that illustrated. This book has bright, colorful pages, and i enjoyed reading it alot. I would recomend this book for preschool and older just because the words are small and some are hard to pronounce. The Tortoise and the Hare tells that you can never judge someone by what they look like or haow slow they are. The tortoise one because he was confident in what he was doing, he was determined to win the race and he did. The hare was upset but he fell asleep. that was his fault. He learned his lesson.

  • This is a retelling of the fable of the tortoise and the hare. The hare was faster and confident that he would win the race, and so he stopped to enjoy himself along the way. In the end, the tortoise, with his slow and steady way, wins the race. I love the verbal part of this story. Nice lesson, short but sweet. However, I absolutely cannot stand the illustrations. They have semi-abstract backgrounds and unnaturally vivid blobs of color and just are not to my taste at all. I'll keep this book to read with my children, but I wish it had more realistic, softer illustrations.
