Updated: Dragon and Turtle on Safari
Rarely, opportunities to review children's books arise. Waterbrook Multnomah provided a children's book, recently, as part of the Blogging for Books program. Geared toward mid-elementary age children, the story could be read to younger kids; however, the illustrations are dark and would not hold the eye of
young child.

Using animals endowed with human characteristics--they speak, et cetera--The Dragon and the Turtle go on Safari teaches children things are often different than they appear, one should persevere rather than give-up, and the value of being courageous. The Bible verse in the back of the book (Deuteronomy 31:6) supports the story: do not fear and trust God.

The story is cute and contains a fable that one of the characters had intended to tell during the backyard camp-out. The fable is more about perseverence and failing to see things clearly. It really doesn't support the Bible verse or the subject matter of trusting in God and not fearing.

This book is available from retailers such as www.amazon.com
