This book was another recommendation from Read Aloud Revival (Sarah Mackenzie), and it did not disappoint! My kids (5yo & 3yo) thought this book was hilarious; I found it clever, cute, and beautifully illustrated. I appreciated the lessons learned as well, although I don’t want to add any spoilers. This book was a fun moral lesson as well as providing a chance to talk to my kids about all the hard work that goes into farming and harvesting crops. We even talked about hibernation! We definitely recommend this book.
Oh the cleverness... and I liked the sly pun at the beginning aimed at the Tortoise.
Hare turns his bad luck around by striking a clever deal with the rich and lazy bear down the road.
