  1. Grow-Up® Plan – A Powerful Head Start: Introducing the Hare

    cartoon hareThis is the second post in a three-part series chronicling an imaginary rematch of sorts between two fabled opponents: the Tortoise and the Hare. In Part 1, we met Timmy “Too Fast” Tortoise. Today, we meet the tortoise’s challenger, Henry “Hasty” Hare.

    Since taking an ill-timed nap during their first famous showdown, the Hare has been training for a hoped-for rematch with the Tortoise. He has been hopping over logs in the forest, eating clean, and napping only when he’s not in the middle of a race.

    Now that he has overheard that the Tortoise is out to purchase life insurance to better protect his turtle family, the Hare decides that he has finally found an opportunity for redemption.

    Since that fateful day, it seems, the two have grown a bit older and have started families, but the Hare has not forgotten the embarrassment he suffered at the hands (claws?) of the Tortoise and has been seeking a way to make a comeback.

    Recently, we learned that when the Hare overheard that his old nemesis was thinking of purchasing life insurance to better protect his tortoiseurtle family (something that the Hare had neglected to do for his bunny family), he couldn’t resist the opportunity to challenge the Tortoise to race once again.
