The Dragon and The Turtle Review

The Dragon and the Turtle
The Dragon and the Turtle
Written by Donita K. Paul and Evangeline Denmark, illustrated by Vincent Nguyen 

The main character in this children's book is Roger, an adorable turtle who loves the adventure of pretending to be a pirate. One day he loses his way when his imagination gets the best of him. While he searches for his home he meets Padraig, a endearing and loyal dragon.

Padraig volunteers to help Roger find his way home. Padraig shows great selflessness in putting aside his own desires to help his new friend.

When Padraig finally leads Roger home both boys have discovered what it truly means to be a good friend. They also see that friends don't need to be exactly alike.

This book is based on Proverbs 17:17 which says: "A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity."

The end of the book provides discussion points that could be shared by a parent and child. A recipe for chocolate chip snappers (Roger's favorite snack) is also included in the book.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

Good review of this book! I need to get my hands on a copy - I teach at a Christian Preschool and I think the kids would really enjoy this book. I review books as well!
