Blogging for Books- The Dragon and the Turtle

Posted by Heather at Friday, January 28, 2011
The Dragon and the Turtle is a children’s story about two friends, Padraig the Dragon and Roger the pirating Turtle. Padraig helps his new friend, Roger, find his home through a series of repetitious descriptions involving all five senses- “…looks like…smells like…feels like…tastes like…” The Dragon and The Turtle teach children about friendship, putting the needs of friends’ before your own and exploring new ideas.

The book is engaging and simple enough for even the youngest reader. The story has all the elements and promise of an endearing story- pirate, dragons, and bugs! However, it fails to deliver. The illustrations are mediocre. The beginning of the book kind of “plops” you into the storyline without any formal introduction- I actually thought my book was missing the first couple of pages! At the end of the book, there are some helpful activity suggestions and a Bible verse to go along with the story.
