[Book Review] "The Dragon and the Turtle Go On Safari" by Donita K. Paul and Evangeline Denmark

Note: This book was received free as part of LibraryThing's early reviewer program in exchange for an honest review.
This book features a dragon and a turtle camping out, telling stories to each other. In the midst of it all, the dragon gets scared when he hears a noise in the woods and the turtle encourages the dragon to be brave and venture out. All irony about a scared dragon aside, this book is an enjoyable little read for children. It's suggested for younger children, ages 3-7, I believe, but I think it might be better geared toward older children, maybe 5-9. My 7 year old and 3 year old really enjoyed it and it offers a scripture lesson on being strong and courageous because God is with us.
