The Tortoise and the Hare: An Aesop Fable by Janet Stevens
“The Tortoise and the Hare” is a wonderful Aesop fable classic from Janet Stevens and it is about how Tortoise tries to work out everyday in order to beat Hare in a big race. “The Tortoise and the Hare” is the perfect book about the importance of hard work and perseverance that children will cherish for many years.
Janet Stevens has done an excellent job at both illustrating and writing this book about a famous Aesop fable. Janet Stevens’ illustrations are beautiful and colorful, especially of the images of Hare looking scraggly, while Tortoise looked wrinkly yet wise. Janet Stevens’ writing sets up the moral of the story, which is “hard work and perseverance brings its own rewards” in such a brilliant manner, that many children will be awed at how Janet Stevens shows that hard work does pay off.
“The Tortoise and the Hare” is a great book for children who want to learn how to work hard to earn their goals in life and is easily one of the greatest Aesop fables ever told. I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book.

Do you ever wonder what the heck your life purpose is? I do and I have since I was about 11 or 12 years of age. Some of my youngest memories go back to reading books such as; Gestalt Therapy which is an experiential form of psychotherapy that emphasizes personal responsibility - heavy stuff for a 12 year old , The Bible and the Tibetan book of the dead in my early 20's. These are just a few of the reads that were far beyond my years. I am still unsure if I understood the magnitude of their teachings, but I do remember trying very hard to garner an understanding while reading lines over and over until I could grasp a tiny bit of its message;. As a young child I was searching for meaning within and beyond this life which encompasses the concrete while always seeking out the abstract; always wanting to be better at life.
