About The Tortoise and the Hare

The 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.

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. After purchasing the CD/MP3, print out a coloring page and explore the free curriculum guide which teaches the moral of the story and contain unit studies in music, science and other subjects.
