Tortoise and Hare : a fairy tale to help you find balance / words by Susan Verde ; pictures by Jay Fleck.

Verde, Susan, (author.). Fleck, Jay, (illustrator.).


Tortoise and Hare are neighbors, but they have very different approaches to life: Hare does everything super quickly, but does not always pay attention to what is around her, Tortoise does things slowly and thoughtfully, but sometimes he fails to finish tasks--so when they agree to a race, Hare is certain she will finish first, but instead both Hare and Tortoise discover that what is most important is having a friend to keep you in balance.
