About the Reviewer:
My name is Yesenia and I attend the University of Arizona.
I plan on graduating in the fall of 2001 with my Bachelors
in Education. Once I graduate, I plan to teach in Tucson or
Phoenix. I am taking a children's literature class. One of
the requirements for the class is to share a Southwestern
book with a class of elementary school students. The book
I selected was The Tortoise and the Jackrabbit by Susan
Lowell and illustrated by Jim Harris. I shared it with the
first grade students at Jefferson Elementary School.
