The Foolish Tortoise

Illustrated by: Eric Carle / Read by: Keith Nobbs
The beloved story of The Foolish Tortoise, illustrated by Eric Carle, comes to life in this interactive book and CD package.

The foolish tortoise is tired of being so slow. He decides that the easiest way for him to move faster is to get out of his heavy shell. The only problem is, once he leaves his home, he’s too scared to walk anywhere! This silly tortoise learns the hard way that there’s no place like home.

Children and adults alike will enjoy this classic tale of self-discovery, whimsically illustrated by Eric Carle. This package includes a paperback book along with a CD of the story being read aloud.
