Here we are in a beautiful meadow. At the top the sky is a warm, clear blue, and below, the grass is cool and a soft green. How lovely it would feel under your bare feet! In amongst the fresh blades of grass are tiny flowers - pretty blues, and pinks, and reds, like dabs of ice cream. Can you smell them? ... In the meadow two friends are playing - the Tortoise and the Hare. Would you like to read this book and find out what they get up to ?Let's open the cover of the book to find our first feely picture. The Hare is at the top of the feely page. The Tortoise is at the bottom. Using both of your hands feel all over the caramel-coloured brown Hare at the top.
