Tortoise and Hare's Amazing Race - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Arbordale Publishing.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
A retelling of the classic story with a math twist. Henry Hare was always bragging about how fast he was. One day he challenges Tessie Tortoise to a mile-long race up the hill. Henry leaps ahead for the first eighth of a mile. As Tessie approaches, he bounds ahead again. Fractions and distance measurements mark their progress as Tessie and Henry race to the finish line.

My Review:

The Tortoise and the Hare is a classic Aesop's Fable that's familiar to most.  Tortoise and Hare's Amazing Race is very similar to the classic tale but has some added details.  It tells of Henry Hare who brags that he can outrun Tess Tortoise.  To prove which one is faster, a race is planned.  At first it seems Henry Hare is beating Tess Tortoise but, in the end, slow and steady wins the race.

Throughout the book are cute and colorful illustrations of forest creatures.  Units of measurement are included in the illustrations and the actual story, to give an idea of how distance is mapped. 

The "For Creative Minds" section in the back of the book is educational and engaging.  It includes a section on Units of Measurement, info on animals of all sizes, and an exercise on Equal To, Greater Than, and Less Than.

Tortoise and Hare's Amazing Race is a Fall 2015 book release by Arbordale Publishing.
