Based on Aesop’s tale of determination and perseverance, Living Books brings the story of The Tortoise and the Hare. Who hasn’t heard the story about the slow tortoise that, in the end, wins the race against the speedy hare? The story is presented across a baker's dozen of screens. Each starts with simple narration which allows and encourages reading along. Then the user can interact with many items on each page for exploration and fun.

In theme with other Living Books series, the title presents pages that are drawn in a brightly colored cartoon style. Many hidden objects within the pages are waiting to be found by clicking on them to start a fun animation sequence. You can also click on any of the words of the story and hear them repeated to promote reading skills.
