Two competitors, one race course, and one finish line. Hare definitely has the advantage. He’s fast, he can dash, and can rush through meadows. Hare loves to win almost as much as he loves carrots. Tortoise, on the other hand, is not known for his speed, but he’s willing to compete against Hare. The race begins and Hare is off in a flash as Tortoise only starts to move. Hare has a substantial lead but gets distracted by the carrots in the carrot field. He can’t resist having a few carrots and taking a nap. Tortoise keeps on going and passes by the sleeping Hare, crossing the finish line just before Hare.
