Adapted from an Aesop Fable, this story relates the famous tale of the tortoise and the hare only it is done purely through road signs. I think it is a cute idea, but I thought the book was a little hard to follow, even being familiar with the story. The moral of hard work is the same though. Included at the back is an illustrated page of all of the signs used in the book so it would be a great tool to use to teach kids about road signs.
I like the idea of this book, but I wish there was more of an actual story. For those who know the story well, it is probably obvious that Hare will not win the race due to his neglect of the road signs, but I think this might be lost on those less familiar with the classic tale.
