    2. When Turtle Grew Feathers A Folktale from the Choctaw Nation is a Native American twist on the Tortoise and the Hare story In this version Turkey accidently breaks Turtle s shell and so Turtle has to take it off Unfortunately, Turkey gets stuck in the shell and ends up racing Rabbit This was a very simple story that is appropriate for pre schoolers and beginning readers The artwork was colorful, but not particularly memorable Other than the title and a sentence about it being a Choctaw tale, the [...]

    3. I am Choctaw, so I was thrilled when my mother in law sent us this Choctaw version of the old Tortoise and the Hare fable The only problem is that the story seems a little silly and the illustrations are below par My daughter enjoys it well enough, but she doesn t pick this one out very often.

    7. A well known folktale of the Turtle and the Hare told a different way originally from the Choctaw people With similar characteristics about the mean Rabbit asking the slow Turtle to race Though this version adds an interesting twist creating new elements and a different take on things Beautifully illustrated with full page depictions, this story tells a very well known folktale and gives it a different spin I think it would be very beneficial because it has a good moral but it is slightly unexpe [...]

    8. Age preschool second gradeMedia acrylic paintIllustrator Style Large, bold images of three main characters makes it easy for youngins to focus on singular objectsAn interesting realtion to the fable of the Hare and the Tortoise, this Chocktaw tale explains why turtles shells are cracked and why we never see Rabbit racing Turtle today This has a very didactic undertone of cooperation while incorporating the trickster who finally shows the bully not to mess with physically weaker animals.

    10. The illustrations look scary mean to me not a fan Course, most of these characters act kinda mean too Not really an attitude I d want my kid picking up on throuh repeated reads The book starts out with 6 7 pages of mostly dialogue written in a really awkward verse Thankfully it switches to prose after that and things improve slightly Still, not one I d want to read again.

    13. This is a fun version of the tortoise and the hare It is a Choctaw tale and would be good for those looking to compare across cultures I enjoyed the story, though I wasn t a huge fan of the rhyming bits.

    14. The Choctaw version of the Tortoise and the Hare.It turns out, Turkey was checking out Turtle s shell when Rabbit came by and challenged him to a race Instead of Rabbit winning easily, Turkey Turtle flew by Rabbit.As you might expect, the moral is a little different.

    20. Oh, this was so much fun Such a silly take on a classic The rhyming added a new element to the story and overall a new lesson to what is seen as a classic tortoise and hare tale.
