In this reimagined picture-book version of Aesop’s fable The Tortoise and the Hare, children will learn the importance of friendship, tolerance, and patience as they follow the adventures of Bunny and Turtle.
Bunny and Turtle are the best of friends, but they are very different from each other! Bunny is all action, while Turtle is a thoughtful planner. When Bunny and Turtle decide to climb a mountain together, Bunny is eager to get going. But Turtle wants to take it slow and prepare for the trip. Will Bunny become impatient? Will Turtle’s planning pay off?
What’s the Rush? warmly highlights the power of accepting differences in others, while also showing the importance of building strong friendships and the value of taking things slow and thinking ahead. This colorful, charming illustrated picture book is ideal for parents reading aloud to toddlers and young children, making it a perfect way to engage with kids about the virtue of patience.
PRAISE FOR WHAT'S THE RUSH?...
"This charming journey tale hints at both the need to take action and the importance of careful planning, striking a balance. Using expressive, organic lines, Lee’s watercolor, gouache, and colored pencil illustrations are fanciful and alternate between panels and full-page spreads. Take the time to enjoy this one."
