Lovely watercolor illustrations enhance this enchanting retelling of the Aesop fable. There are some charming surprises in the recounting of the story of the race between the two animals. Young and old alike will find much to appreciate in this wonderful book.

In addition to the story, there is a Key to the Animals at the end of the story, providing the reader with information about the animals in the story.

Highly recommended. ( )

I have always loved this book. The story has always had good moral about being nice and taking the time can get you better results than taking the fast way to the finish line. This book had awesome illustrations, filled with the various animals they come across on their journey to finish.

This story is just one version of many takes on the story of the tortoise and the hare. It starts out with the hare running all over the place priding himself in his speed. One day he trips over the tortoise and then blames him for being too slow. The tortoise then suggests, in order to solve this situation, that they should race. The hare gleefully accepts due to his pride and overconfidence in his speed. In the middle of the race the hare gets tired and believes that he is so far ahead in the race that he takes a nap and once he wakes up he decides to eat. As he is eating he hears a crowed cheering only to realize too late that he is going to lose to the tortoise.

The overall lesson the people teach in this story is that slow and steady wins the race. There was another thought that crossed my mind when it comes to this story and that could be to teach being humble and while having confidence (like the tortoise), that there is a bad thing known as "cocky", arrogant, or overconfident.

The classic story of the boastful Hare and the persistent Tortoise is here retold by English artist Helen Ward, who has since authored and illustrated Unwitting Wisdom, a collection of fables from Aesop. When Hare falls headlong over Tortoise while out for a run, his abusive reaction leads to a challenge. Who will win their race...?

Everyone knows the answer to that, of course, but the fun of reading Ward's retelling lies in watching the participants get to the finish line, and in looking at her detailed ink and watercolor illustrations. The many animal spectators come from all over the world, and include everything from a pronghorn antelope to an emu - all identified in the helpful appendix Ward includes at the rear of the book.

All in all The Hare And The Tortoise is an appealing retelling, although Ward does take some liberties with the story. The role of the spectators in delaying Hare does take some of the glory away from Tortoise, but as it is prompted by Hare's boastful behavior, the moral still shines through. ( )

This is a great teaching book. The torotise is slow and careful the Hare is fast and carless. This could be applied to many life situations. The end of the book has a key to animals in it. Like I said this book is a great teaching tool.
