I think what I love most about these dragon books is not only are they fun and exciting, but they teach some great lessons too! Everything from fire safety to anger management and everything in between. Books are a fun and engaging way to help kids grasp new concepts and what better way to do that than with dragons?!
When we first started getting into dragons, our little one couldn’t get enough of them! He would run through the house pretending to breathe fire. You can imagine his excitement when I brought a stack of dragon books for him to read. These dragon books are PERFECT for dragon-obsessed kiddos.
