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!

Hi there! OBM here. This book is VERY cute. Sari loved the story, and it was very clever the way the illustrations showed the "wild animals" the Turtle and Dragon encounter for what they really were. The story gives parents a great chance to discuss things that go bump in the night and how imagination can sometimes get the best for us. I loved the scripture at the end that tied it all together. We give this book 4 thumbs up (mine and Sari's).
Pin It!
