Climb Theatre Presents

The Tortoise and the Hare

The Tortoise and the Hare

A mini-play that supports literacy and reading readiness

Speedy the Hare keeps teasing Sal the Tortoise because Sal is slower than Speedy. So Sal decides there's only one solution: to beat Speedy in a race. But how? Sal discovers that instead of worrying about what he isn't, he can build on what he is. Sal is steady. Sal is focused and determined. Sal can train hard. and in the end, Sal discovers that being a winner is about much more than who crosses the finish line first.

Mini-plays are 30 minutes long followed by a 10-to-15 minute activity session.

eBooks MN

Ebooks Minnesota, an online ebook collection spearheaded by Minnesota’s libraries, is open to Minnesota readers. The collection is accessible online at EbooksMN.org and via free apps from iTunes, Google Play, and Kindle. There is no charge to libraries or individuals who wish to use the collection, and no username or password is required. Ebooks Minnesota is open to all readers within Minnesota’s borders.

No process is required to “check out” a book. Readers can access any book in the collection at any time regardless of how many other readers are also using that book. This feature makes the collection particularly useful for schools that may wish to assign a single book to an entire class or even an entire school. Likewise, community book clubs, no matter how large, can read books together without worrying about checkout limits or due dates.

The collection contains more than 2,000 books, including titles from these Minnesota publishers: ABDO, Lerner Publishing Group, Cherry Lake Publishing, University of Minnesota Press, Milkweed Press, and Coffeehouse Press. Nonfiction titles from Arcadia Publishing about Minnesota and its history are also included in the collection. A selection of popular titles that are in the public domain, such as "Dracula." and “Jane Eyre,” completes the collection.

Explore authors' entire works on Project Gutenberg.
