Title: The Dragon and the Turtle Go On Safari
Authors: Donita K. Paul and Evangeline Denmark
Illustrator: Vincent Nguyen
Publisher: WaterBrook Press
My thoughts: This is a beautifully illustrated book about two friends, Roger the turtle and Padraig the Dragon, who decide to spend a night camping at Mount Sillymanborrow. During the night they encounter some scary situations. Because of their friendship, they are able to overcome their fears and help each other
make it to morning.
The Legend of Mount Sillmanborrow is included at the end, as Roger never did get a chance to tell it to Padraig. Also included are some great questions that you can pose to your child to get them thinking about how we show our friends we care. Also some suggestions about what we can do to face our fears.
