Description:  Gilda Radner narrates this program's feature book, THE TORTOISE AND THE HARE, the time-honored classic retold and illustrated by Janet Stevens. LeVar faces a big challenge when he gets ready to compete against some of Hawaii's top bicyclists in the First Annual Rainbow Mini-Classic Bicycle Race.

Activity Suggestion: Plan several different outdoor relay races. Remind children of the lesson in THE TORTOISE AND THE HARE: winning and losing is part of a race but the most important thing is to do your very best. After the races talk with the children once again about doing your very best in whatever you do.
