4.0 out of 5 stars Cute Retelling Of The Tortoise and The Hare January 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a nice little book which tells the story of the race between the turtle and the rabbit. However it does not end here but continues with story as it teaches us the problems with overconfidence and bragging. The computer generated artwork is cute but most of the pictures are either of the rabbit or turtle just standing there in some kind of pose. My kids loved the book and the message was good.

Highly recommended.

Ridiculous illustrations. Bad writing. Just bad. Would not recommend purchasing this e-book. My son lost interest immediately. Wish I could return

3.0 out of 5 stars I liked it. January 9, 2014

My 6 year old says the book was funny and interesting but wished there were more pictures. The pictures were cute but some of them were just repeats from the other pages.

I felt it was a good read for him. A good mix of easy and challenging words. It had potential but it was a bit disappointing in the end. But overall it was cute. I would read the other titles by this author as well.
