The Dragon and the Turtle Go On Safari by Donita K. Paul and Evangeline Denmark
This book kept the attention of my 3 and 5 year olds. They were chuckling with the dialogue and antics. The books has some good messages..."Proper adventurer's always say please". The graphics in this book are almost like paintings, which I loved! We again discussed the book at breakfast and the kids were both telling what they liked. All in all it is a nice Children's book that will be read again!
“Padraig, my friend, it is time for us to be courageous.”
Padraig the dragon and his best friend, Roger the turtle are determined to spend the whole night outside. As brave explorers at the base of Mount Sillymanborrow, the boys use their imaginations to have fun while munching on crunchy baked bugs and toasting s’mores over their campfire. But when the sky gets dark and the sounds of strange animals fill the forest outside their tent, their safari gets scary. This adventure is just what the boys need to discover that the dark might be frightening, but their friendship is stronger than fear.
I was provided with a free copy of this book by the publisher, the opinions are my own.
