"I am the fastest creature in the land," said Hare to all the animals gathered around. Then Tortoise said "I am tired of hearing you brag and I challenge you to a race."
The Tortoise and the Hare
Hare agreed to the race because of his confidence in his speed. Then the race began and Hare quickly pulled ahead.
When Hare got to the halfway mark in the race he turned around to look for Tortoise and saw him just comming into view. So Hare decided he had time to spare and that he could take a quick nap.
While Hare was sleeping Tortoise slowly crept by him never stopping. When Tortoise saw Hare sleeping he scoffed and thought about how arrogant Hare was.
When Hare woke up he stretched and went to continue the race the race when he saw Tortoise about to cross the finish line he sprinted to catch up but he was too late and Tortoise crossed the finish line before him.
After Tortoise was declared the winner of the race all of the animals cheered in happiness. While Hare thought Don't brag about your lightning pace, for Slow and Steady won the race
