November Is Picture Book Month, And We Are Starting With the Kids' VIB

This companion to the Caldecott Medal-winning The Lion & the Mouse is Jerry Pinkney's most stunning masterpiece yet. Even the slowest tortoise can defeat the quickest hare, and even the proudest hare can learn a timeless lesson from the most humble tortoise: Slow and steady wins the race! Here is a superbly rendered journey from starting line to finish that embodies the bravery, perseverance, and humility we can all find inside ourselves.

Jackie says:
"Jerry Pinkney has become one of my most favorite artists. There is so much depth and detail to his work, I have literally sat for hours just soaking in his beautiful illustrations. I cannot praise him enough nor can I recommend him highly enough. Come in and look at the book--I'm betting you'll leave the store with it, and perhaps at couple of his other works as well."

Every now and then we encounter a new children's book or series that we’re so excited about we want to broadcast it from the rooftop, so we've created a Kids' TC VIB (very impressive book) for a real stand-out among the many delightful and meaningful new editions for young readers.
