The Tortoise and the Hare by Graham Percy

The Tortoise and the Hare by Graham Percy, 32 pages

In this classic tale, children are taught the moral that a slow and steady pace sometimes is the best.  I love Aesop's classic fables.  Fables are short and sometimes funny stories that teach the reader a moral.  Aesop's fables have given us some classic phrases such as "sour grapes" and "Don't count your chickens before they're hatched."  I did not know this before reading this book.  As an adult, I always remembered this classic tale, but it is funny, I never recalled who had won.  Do you?
