An Old Story Made New Again

One of my favorite fables from childhood is the “Tortoise and the Hare”. So, naturally, it came to mind as one of the books that I wanted turn into a Storytime episode on AUTHORized.

Even though this story is very old, (I’m talking at least 1400 years old), it has been retold in a READING RAINBOW book written and illustrated by Janet Stevens. The original author, Aesop, was believed to have lived between 620 BCE – 564 BCE.

Even though the story is “old” the lesson being taught is timeless. Tune and in let me know what you think! Do you think “The Tortoise and the Hare” teaches children a valuable lesson?
