Short Stories Tall Tales: The Hare and the Tortoise

Interactive storytelling for babies, toddlers and their parents or carers.

Hannah Summers is an actress, a singer and a mum and combines each talent to bring interactive, imaginative play for parents/carers and their toddlers aged 0-4. Hannah tells a different story each month, through illustrated film slides, songsand creative fun.

The Hare and the Tortoise

In one of the most famous of Aesop’s fables, a very cheeky and boastful hare gloats that he’s the fastest creature in the whole wood. A tortoise, sick of bickering on this topic, volunteers to race him and Hare learns an important lesson.

Hannah’s inventive and energetic retelling follows the Hare and the Tortoise through, over and round the forest obstacles and working together, your little ones learn that it isn’t all about who wins the chase, slow and steady wins the race.

“Tortoise comes first, but so do we, as teamwork is worth more than first place to me.”

Adapted for storytelling, written and told by Hannah Summers, illustrations by Miranda Summers.
