The Dragon and the Turtle Go On Safari
The Dragon and the Turtle Go On Safari by Donita K. Paul and Evangeline Denmark illustrated by Vincent Nguyen is a children's story book, in which two personified animals, help to tell an encouraging moral tale about courage and friendship. The well developed animal characters, two unlikely friends: a turtle and dragon, have a sleepover outside in the dark, in which they share more than fun memories, and imaginary adventure but rather they develop a deep friendship where kindness, cooperation and empathy prevail. The two animated personalities and adventure as well as the full color illustrations are sure to capture the attention of young readers. In the end of the book is the additional "story" that was not told within the main story and also contained are discussion questions for parents to engage in a dialog with their children. As a blogger for Water Brook press I recieved a copy of this book for the purpose of writing this review. The opinions expressed are my own.
