The illustrations work quite well with the story and as Landon has his first lesson. While an excellent choice for story time, this book is also written for use as a primer by new readers.

Victor Teran's picture book for children, titled Landon's First Taekwon-Do Lesson, is an absolute delight to read. I appreciate a children's book that not only provides fun pictures and a cute, pleasant story line but inspires children to ask questions and learn. Within these pages kids will learn about different types of kicks, proper etiquette in a dojo, and why you start with a white belt, which even as an adult I found interesting. There's a lot of great content in here and Teran ends it with a sweet passage to kids teaching them to respect their teachers, which I think is an especially valuable lesson that can often be overlooked when the excitement of learning Taekwon-Do is in the forefront of their minds. 

This picture book would be a perfect gift to a child or grandchild who is about to start martial arts lessons. Or you can simply use this as a bedtime story by itself. Landon's First Taekwon-Do Lesson is a home run on all fronts from art to writing and I think you'll find this a worthy addition to any child's library.
