One thing we love around here is reading wonderful books. I have one to bring to you all that I was so thrilled and honored to get to read. The kids enjoyed this book so much!
Synopsis: Dominick is a lonely little boy who has an interest in dragons so when his brothers tell him about one living in the “dark forest” behind Dominick’s home, he longs to meet him. Imagine his surprise when he does. Here, he must outsmart the dragon named Elvis who is always hungry.
About the Author: Anne K. Edwards enjoys writing tales for children when she’s not focusing on a mystery. Some stories are ideas taken from little misadventures of her cat who actually did fall off the porch and land on a large blacksnake as it was sunning itself. Both were more than a little surprised.
Our Thoughts: This was truly a very cute and short read. Dominick’s dream has been to meet a dragon and when he does the dragon isn’t what he thought it would be. The illustrations are super fun and complement the story wonderfully. This is a book that Sam enjoyed the most. At three he loves dragons so this was right up his alley.
