dc.description.abstractHere is a small, almost 5 x 5¾, hard-covered book of twenty pages stressing the power of perseverance. Full-page cameo-shaped illustrations occupy one of every pair of pages. The story is carefully told. For example, the fox and squirrel mention that they will take a shortcut to the finish line, while the two contestants must stay on the dirt path. Perhaps the best illustration is that of the sleepy hare yawning. He decides to take a nap. The tortoise walks by him very quietly. A last page of moralizing is nicely restrained. As you grow, you will learn that things don't always come easily. But if you work hard and don't give up, wonderful things can happen.en_US
