about

Slowly Wins the Day: A Modern Day Version of the Tortoise and the Hare is a story filled with passion and determination that promotes exercise. In this timely tale, a little girl who takes part every year in numerous activities for sports day has always come in last, but has still greatly enjoyed taking part. Because she always finishes last, she has been landed with the name "Slowly." Even her grandmother calls her by that name. It is only when a new teacher joins the school that Slowly discovers she does have a talent, a sport in which she can excel. What is the sport and can Slowly finally win? Will her persistence help her win the day? Remember "The Tortoise and the Hare," where persistence pays off! Born in Kent, Helen Hendry is a podiatrist in Edinburgh, Scotland. "The Olympic Games open in the United Kingdom this year and I thought that a story delivering a clear message about exercise would be an ideal subject. It is important that exercise and sport should not be seen as a punishment, but should be enjoyed by everyone. I hope the story will encourage children of all abilities to succeed if they try hard enough and find their talent."Publisher's website: http://sbpra.com/HelenHendry
