                THE HARE AND THE TORTOISE

    One day the tortoise was walking slowly along the road.

    Suddenly she saw the hare, who was running and skipping along.

    When the hare saw the tortoise, she began to laugh:
“Ha, ha, ha. You are so slow.”
    “Yes,” said the tortoise. “I’m slow but nothing stops me. Look. Do you see that hill?”
    “Yes,” said the hare. “I can see it. So what?”
    “Well, I’ll race you to the top,” said the tortoise.
    “Ha, ha, ha. You race me? That’s great! Ha, ha, ha!”

    Then the hare called all the other animals. She called the fox, the hen, the duck, the dog and the cat.
    “Hey, come on, everybody,” she said. “We’re going to have a race. Come and watch us.”

    All the other animals came and the hare and the tortoise lined up. The fox said: “Ready, steady, go!” and the hare went running off.

    Meanwhile the tortoise started plodding slowly along: plod, plod, plod, plod, plod…………

    After a while the hare stopped and turned round.
She looked down the hill. There was the tortoise a long, long, long, long way away.

    “Ha, ha, ha,” said the hare. “That tortoise will never catch me up. I’ve got time to have a little sleep.” So she sat down under a tree, closed her eyes and went to sleep.

    Meanwhile the tortoise carried on walking: plod. plod, plod, plod, plod….. Suddenly she heard someone snoring.

    “Who’s that?” She looked round and there was the hare fast asleep under a tree.

    “Ha, ha, ha,” said the tortoise. “She thinks she’s better than me.” And she carried on up the hill: plod, plod, plod, plod, plod………

    After some time the hare woke up. “Where’s the tortoise?” she said. She stood up and looked down the hill.

    She could not see the tortoise anywhere. Then she turned round and there was the tortoise at the top of the hill.

    “Ha, ha, ha,” laughed the tortoise. “Slow but sure wins the race.”

    All the animals at the bottom of the hill clapped and shouted: “Hooray!...
