Includes activity booklet
About The Tortoise and the HareThe Tortoise and the Hare, Aesop's most beloved fable, is set to original music by composer/conductor Stephen Simon. Performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, this fun production includes a new adaption of The Tortoise and the Hare story by Bonnie Ward Simon.
With his natural talent and new running shoes, Hare is certain that he will win the race. Feeling the hat is in the bag, so to speak, he stops at a little French bistro along the route for some French onion soup. Meanwhile, all the small animals in the forest cheer poor, slow Tortoise along, while Hare, who is way out in front, decides to take a nap...The activity booklet contains words and sheet music for a sing-along song, information on the instruments, a lesson on musical notations, fractions and educational games.
