Today I have a guest to review the book, The Dragon and the Turtle, by bestselling author Donita K. Paul and up-and-coming author Evangeline Denmark. I read the book to my daughter Christa and she's going to review the book!
So, Christa, did you like The Dragon and the Turtle?
I liked the book a lot.
What did you like about the book?
I liked both the story of Padraig and Roger and the artwork too.
Did you have a favorite part in the story?
There's so many good parts to choose from. I liked the personality of Roger and Padraig--they are fun. And I like the cookie recipe in the back of the book for Chocolate Chip Snappers. We're gonna make those, right?
Did you like having the book read aloud to you?
Yes, because I like listening to you read to me.
Would you read this book again?
Yes, I would! And I'd read it to someone else too--especially someone younger than me.
Note from Christa's mom (me!): Originally, after I invited Christa to review the book for me--and explained what that meant--I handed her the book to read. And then I thought, This is a read-aloud book! So, Christa and I snuggled on the couch while I read the adventures of a little lost turtle and a very helpful red dragon. It was fun to share the story with my daughter and to hear her giggles. And, yes, we are going to make the Chocolate Chip Snappers!
