**Named as Kirkus Review’s Best App of 2011** The Hare and the Tortoise, as told in Marmaduke Park’s beautiful, rhythmic rendition of this timeless Aesop fable, come to life in a fresh and fun Scanimation approach. Hare and Tortoise is a short story for kids with a moral. When Hare boasts that he "leaves the wind behind" when he runs, Tortoise replies, "What nonsense. I'll give you a race." Hare laughs but accepts this easy challenge. As they set off, Hare bounds down the lane, with Tortoise creeping along behind. Hare obviously has the advantage … or does he? Hare and Tortoise is a part of the Auracle line from Auryn. ▶ KEY EDUCATIONAL THEMES: - Learn the moral of the story -Kids will get introduced to two new animals and their characteristics ▶ EXTEND THE LEARNING! ASK YOUR CHILD: - Name some wild animals, or animals that live in forests. - What did you learn from the story? Would you follow it? ▶ DEVELOP READING SKILLS WITH THESE LITERACY TOOLS: - Karaoke effect - when a word is spoken during narration then the word is highlighted. - Touch a word to hear it being spoken in “Read Myself” mode (almost like “training wheels” for new readers) - Interact with the story as it unfolds, cutting the rope that holds the text to make it drop and bounce and switching between different narrator voices. ▶ TWO WAYS TO READ THE BOOK: 1) "Read to me" - Listen to the narrated story while the text is displayed Karaoke style. After the narration finishes on a page the child can interact with objects until they are ready to move to the next page. 2) "Read myself" - There is no narration but the child can touch a word to hear it being spoken aloud.
