Here is one of five books in a series I found together. 24 pages, with page 3 being the title-page. The book is aimed at younger children. It explains, for example, that a tortoise is a kind of turtle and a hare a kind of rabbit. The story is generally traditional. This hare stops to play and then deliberately takes a nap, telling himself that he can catch up even if he falls asleep. The final double-page spread may be the best illustration of the book. The winded, sweating hare crosses the finish line while the tortoise looks on sipping a drink through a straw. There are two pages of glossary at the back of this very sturdy book.
