It's been many years since I sat down to read similar stories to my three boys. "The Dragon and The Turtle Go on Safari" would have been one that they would have asked for over and over. Padraig and Roger go on a grand adventure (in the back yard), imagining all kinds of safari creatures are out there in the night. Together they learn how to be truthful and courageous, to overcome fear and to encourage one another. I found it so refreshing that Padraig and Roger managed to go outside, use their imagination, and play. They weren't sitting in front of the television playing video games, or talking to their friends on the computer. A definite sit-on-my-lap and read together book, or one that a child would enjoy reading on their own!
