SIMPLY A GOOD BOOK AND A GOOD STORY. May 7, 2007
I liked the text, the message and the illustrations in this one. It is in English with Hispanic text corresponding with the English, a trend of late I find quite encouraging. This is the story of a little boy to imagines what it would be like to have a dragon as a friend and someone to hang out with. The room for the imagination to run here is endless. This is a good one to not only read with your child, but if you are a teacher, it is a great class read. I have read this one to several of my classes and the kids all seem to enjoy it, which, if you think about it, is a pretty good indorsement for a kids book. Highly recommend this one.
Great fun for the family! Oct 29, 2006
"If I Had a Dragon" is great fun for the whole family. My sons have read it every night since we received it and laugh every time. The illustrations are top notch and I hope to see more books from the authors very soon. Highly recommended!
As a Grandmother and Teacher, I highly recommend "If I had a Dragon"!! Jun 13, 2006
"If I had a Dragon" is a humorous and imaginative story that is easily understood and enjoyed by children. The vivid, colorful illustrations tell the story (perfect for the rather short attention spans of young children). The story is sweet and funny, while delivering a valuable lesson. The illustrations are expressive and full of the action and humor that young children love. The large type and few words per page are perfect for the "bedtime story" and also for the beginning reader. I loved the way a short, and sweet lesson about sibling relationships is conveyed in a humorous and yet easily understandable way. This is a terrific book that will be enjoyed by both children and the adults who read to them. As a teacher, I can imagine many "spin-off" learning activities including both character building and creative writing activities. It is the perfect set-up to introduce "if---then" concepts (predictability). Buy this book for your own children, grandchildren, your school class or the perfect gift for any child's special occasion or just because... I would recommend this book for children ages 2 to 7 or 8. Teachers target would be KG.- 1st.
