Tortoise & the Hare
Tortoise & the Hare | Jerry Pinkney
47 posts | 17 read
This companion to the Caldecott Medal-winning The Lion & the Mouse is Jerry Pinkney's most stunning masterpiece yet. Even the slowest tortoise can defeat the quickest hare, and even the proudest hare can learn a timeless lesson from the most humble tortoise: Slow and steady wins the race! Here is a superbly rendered journey from starting line to finish that embodies the bravery, perseverance, and humility we can all find inside ourselves.

Traditional. This classic story of the tortoise and the hare is told though beautiful pictures that depict the action and moral of the story. Slow and steady wins the race and don't get to greedy just because you think something is going to be easy it might bite you in the butt.

One of the most popular children‘s books (probably the only one I have memorized as I‘ve heard it many times). The tortoise and the hare is a story about perseverance and finding strength in ourselves, as the slow, humble tortoise defeats the quickest hare.

This is a classic tale that teaches a valuable lesson. This book will draw readers in because of its use of animals and competition. Never judge a book by its cover.

Another classic in children‘s literature! I think one of the main points for this book is to identify the meaning and how we can learn from it, learning lessons through old folk tales!

The Tortoise and The Hare by Jerry Pinkney was written in 2013. This book is one that has not really any words and is based mainly on pictures. The illustrations did a fantastic job at telling the story! At some points though, the drawings were a little crowded. But, overall the book was very good and fun to go through!

I really really enjoyed reading this story. Jerry Pinkney‘s illustrations were marvelous. They almost were so descriptive that a reader could have understood the plot without having to read any words. The simplicity of this book was also enjoyable and made it easy to follow.

Another classic read. Simple and direct to look at for children. They might struggle to understand the moral of the story, but can be helped to understand. The whole book is illustrations beautifully hand drawn.

I think this would be a great book to show kids. The illustrations create the story and show how the race went for each animal in the competition. It also shows the difficulty or challenge of certain animals in the race. This would be a good lesson to explain that there are traits that could be beneficial in certain activities.

This book is great for kids to read because the images tell the story, and teachers can use this book as a tool to show if students can understand a story and can describe it after reading it. It would also be a great book for students who don‘t know how to read very well. There are some words, but they can easily be sounded out or read aloud.
