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.
