Little Kid Reaction

My son laughed at the funny events and loved lifting the flaps to see what the dragon did. He wanted to read this one right away. We discussed the activities that happen at school.

Parent Reaction

This was lots of fun to read, and I enjoyed laughing with my child at the dragon's antics.

Type of Book:
This is a lift-the-flap book about learning how to behave in school.
Educational Themes:

I worked with my 3-year-old on his storytelling. The text does not explicitly say what actions the dragon has done, so I had my son explain the pictures in increasingly complete and coherent sentences.
