Description

In this Spanish version of The Tortoise and the Hare, the hare is sure she's the speediest animal in the forest, so imagine her surprise when a tortoise challenges her to a race. She’s so sure that it's going to be easy to win the race that she stops to take a nap. The tortoise perseveres and keeps plodding along even as the hare naps. The animals cheer him on while the birds in the trees provide a birds-eye view of the race. This comedic retelling of the classic fable shows, once again, that "slow and steady wins the race."
