Love, love, love Jerry Pinkney!!!,
This review is from: The Tortoise & the Hare (Hardcover)
My kids and I love Jerry Pinkney's artwork. It's beautiful and detailed and funny.
In THE TORTOISE AND THE HARE, there's a western backdrop featuring cactuses and mesquite. Tortoise is wearing a train cap (of all things!) and coyote has got him a cap with a feather in it; while Ms. Kangaroo Mouse dons a prairie bonnet and Hare wears a very nice checkered vest.
Besides the art, what's nice about this story is that it isn't necessary for younger children to be able to read to enjoy it. After they know the story they will able able to pour over the pages and retell it to themselves.
BEAUTIFUL VERSION of this classic story. This would be a lovely book to share with youngsters.
