hurry up and slow down  



When I first glanced at the cover, I decided this would be a retelling of the Tortoise and the Hare fable. Not so, although there is some similarity. Hare likes to go fast with everything. Tortoise prefers it slow. However, late at night, when it is time for stories, hare slows down just fine and the two linger over words and pictures. Kids will demand this be read aloud over and over again. I know that is Natalie, my naked reader (she is now 15) were 4 or 5, this would be a book she would demand again and again. Holiday House, 2009.
