Pinkney, Jerry. The Tortoise and the Hare. New York: Little, Brown and Company, 2013.
from publisher’s web site
This nearly wordless 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.
The Tortoise and the Hare is a mostly wordless book. Jerry Pinkney tells this Aesop fable mostly through beautiful painting. Some of the illustrations do incorporate a few words, but the illustrations carry the tale. The Tortoise and the Hare is a great picture book to add to your collection.The illustrations lend themselves well to children telling a story.
I have a copy of The Tortoise and the Hare in my K-12 Christian School library. This is my honest review.
