The Lovereading4Kids comment
A delightful and heart-warming tale that celebrates the energy of childhood and the joy of sharing books. Toddlers will love this simple story, with its cosy farmland setting and loveable characters. There’s the energetic and impetuous hare and the rather more circumspect tortoise together with a mouse and frog, both of whom you’ll find on the page as an interesting sub-plot. See if your children can spot them.
Hurry Up and Slow Down by Layn Marlow
Hare races through the day while the ever-patient Tortoise does his best to keep up. Hare, it certainly seems to Tortoise, has boundless energy. So Tortoise has plans for when it is time for Hare to go to bed - a well deserved rest with a cup of chamomile tea! And for the first time in the day, it is Tortoise who is in a hurry. He reads speedily, with one eye on his cuppa. But Hare has other ideas. As far as he's concerned, when it's time for his bedtime story from Tortoise, he is no longer in a hurry. In fact he wants to take all the time in the world and linger over every picture. After all, some things just couldn't be rushed!
