Children's Book Review~The Turtle's Shell

I'm always on the lookout for children's books that my son will enjoy and learn from.  The Turtle's Shell by Vincent Eke is one of those finds.  It is the first book in the Mama's Tales of Kanji series, and is an African Folklore themed storybook.  The book is published by Lionpen Publishing.

Tobi is a turtle in a community that is struggling to find food.  The animals are working to pull their resources together, yet Tobi decides not to share his findings.  Tobi learns some valuable lessons, and children reading will learn the moral lessons of sharing, community, and kindness toward others. 

The front and back covers of The Turtle's Shell are illustrated in color, and the illustrations throughout the inside of the book are in black and white, perfect for coloring.  This wasn't a quick read for me and my 11-year-old son-it took us a few nights to finish the entire 44 page story.  My son enjoyed the story and never lost interest.    We are looking forward to reading the next book in the series, The Golden Bird.

Here is my two year old grandson and product tester Daniel, 'reading' The Turtle's Shell.

For more information on The Mama's Tales of Kanji series, visit the Lionpen website and Lionpen Publishing on Facebook.  You can purchase The Turtle's Shell on Amazon.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book free in exchange for my honest review.
