The genre of this book is folklore, and is intended for children ages (P) five to eight. This story, as i am sure many people know, is about a hare who is rude and makes fun of a tortoise for being so slow. The Tortoise and the Hare decide to have a race, and suprisingly the tortoise wins. This book would be appealing to young readers. The children are sure to fall in love with the tortoise who is shown as a bright green, innocent, and shy fellow. The way that the hare is portrayed is a straggly, dark-colored, rude character that the children will find not to like. The ilustrations tell the story themselves and the language used is easy to follow and understand. The lesson learned, or moral of the story is to work hard and never give up. This is a great lesson to teach to your children in the classroom or at home.
