Friendship is always good! (review)

Today I received a delightful little book about friendship! Roger the turtle loses his way to his house when playing pretend. When his new friend Padraig the dragon happens along, he helps Roger find his home. Roger doesn't give up even when it isn't easy to be helpful. This is a great little book to share with children concerning about the ins and outs over friendship. It even includes suggestions on how to extend the story into discussion, and a related Bible verse. After sharing this story with my child, I look forward to sharing it with the children at our church! Thank you, WaterBrook Press!
