What happens: When a Dragon Comes to Stay

The dragon in this story is appealing looking and friendly. S/he is here to show children behaviors that the author clearly hopes that children will also practice. The dragon’s day is much like a child’s; there are games, meals, getting ready for bed and more. The text rhymes and has a repetitive refrain to get children involved in the story.

One quibble with the book: on one page the author observes that a dragon might turn “bad.” I think that another term might have been preferable. When children melt down, I don’t think that “bad” is the best word to use. Other choices are preferable.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
