Topic: Book Reviews
I think I mentioned a month or so ago that I would be reviewing books for First Wild Card Tour. First Wild Card is a Christian organization and their books fit in very nicely with this blog. I'm really excited about this opportunity. It's a lot like the TOS Homeschool Crew, but with books. First Wild Card also does a blip about the authors and the book that I just copy and paste . All I have to do is read the book and give my opinion. And, it's finally time for my first book!
I loved The Dragon and the Turtle Go on Safari. Roger the Turtle and Padraig the Dragon are on the adventure of a lifetime - a safari. Complete with camping, strange night time sounds, and wild animals. Only this safari isn't quite what it seems. What's the problem? You'll have to read the book to find out!
This really is a great book that your kids will love. There is even a great discussion starter to help you talk with your children about being strong and courageous (Deuteronomy 31:6) like Roger and Padraig were. Check below for pricing and other information. This book, along with all of the books in the series can be purchased from www.RandomHouse.com or from any major book retailer. Happy Reading!
It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!
You never know when I might play a wild card on you!
