“The Dragon and the Turtle”

The Dragon and the Turtle

“The Turtle and the Dragon” by Donita K. Paul and Evabgeline Denmark

This little book about a  dragon and turtle who love adventure and yummy treats was a fun read for my five and three year old boys. The story follows two young animals, Padraig and Roger, as they search for Rogers house. Roger has lost his way, and isn’t certain how to get home. He describes his house and his new friend Padraig helps him find his way home. The story is cute, and I liked how it used the five senses to describe Roger’s house, as well as many good descriptive words throughout the story. Padraig displays kindness and helpfulness , and at the end of the story there is a short section with a Scripture verse and disussion points. It also includes a recipe for the “Chocolate Chip Snappers” that Rogers mother bakes in the story.

Overall I thought this was a great story, though I found it a bit long and drawn out when they were searching for Roger’s house. It took them quite a few tries before they found the correct home. But, my boys really enjoyed it, and we all really liked the cute illustrations.

Disclosure: I received this book free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group . I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
