Hi guys and gals!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're playing host to a stop along the Random House Children's Books tour featuring a NEWLY RELEASED Picture Book you're gonna want to see to believe. No, really...and it not only has ridiculously awesome illustrations going for it, but interactive fun too! So, if you're ready, grab your flame retardant gloves and prepare for a flame-tastic adventure as we discover...
Random House Books for Young Readers
It's a BIRD!
It's a PLANE!
Well, at least it WAS until you turned the page...
...now we've got a little FIRE BREATHING surprise...
...and though he is BEYOND CUTE...
...books and flames don't exactly play well together.
Uh-oh...you DID wear those fame retardant gloves, right?
From the moment we're invited to tickle his cutesy little nose (bless you!) to the moment we're using our imagination to help put out the accidental ignition, you can't help but be drawn into this one. The dragon is TOO CUTE for words, and all his efforts, combined with those of his reading audience, go a long way in making this not only a memorable read, but one that may just survive despite a baby dragon's mistake! Kiddos will adore the images, as well as the invitation to help our dragon baby out of his predicament! Trust me, whether young or young at heart, you'll be trying to smother things here, flap things there, and ultimately trying to close the final page with utmost care (eek!), as we come to the aid of our dragon friend. So whether a bedtime read, or story time selection, you can't go wrong when you have a dragon in your book...
