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.
