This book presents the classic tale of the tortoise and the hare. When the prideful hare wants to race somebody, the old and humble tortoise accepts his challenge. The hare, thinking he can outrun the tortoise any day, decides to take it easy during the face, munching on some food and falling asleep for a nap. When he wakes up, he realizes that the tortoise, who had been slow and steady the whole time, has made it to the finish line before him. Ashamed of his rudeness, the hare decides never to make fun of anybody again.
