On the Scut of a Hare

Dahlia Ravikovitch
AGE: 3-6

The famous poet Dahlia Ravikovitch also wrote poems and stories for children. In this wonderful verse for little folk, readers will find a central theme of hers: the longing for distant lands and the dream of escaping from reality to touch the magical and the miraculous. Here, the five-year-old hero dreams of riding on a hare’s tail—and he knows that some day his wish will come true.
He has already ridden in all sorts of motor vehicles, like cars and trains, and he’s heard that you can ride on a dolphin’s back all the way to Greece and Spain. He knows that you can sail in a sailboat and that some animals run fast—like horses, gazelles and squirrels. But the fastest of all is the hare. And although he’s a real sprinter and beats his friends to kindergarten, he knows he could never outrun a hare.
So when he flies to France in a plane, and rides to Norway in a train, and even goes to the land of the Eskimos, he promises his friends that he’ll be home soon, How? On a hare’s tail, of course!
