    The illustrations by Will Hillenbrand are super adorable and I ll be on the look out forfrom this illustrator However, the story is lackluster and,than that, could be a quite scary for kids as the mother dragon has to leave her baby all alone beside a fern on the banks of a river all night long while she goes to help the ailing grandma I think the point is that children should trust that their parents will always come back but, gosh, that poor, scared baby dragon out there all The illustrations by Will Hillenbrand are super adorable and I ll be on the look out forfrom this illustrator However, the story is lackluster and,than that, could be a quite scary for kids as the mother dragon has to leave her baby all alone beside a fern on the banks of a river all night long while she goes to help the ailing grandma I think the point is that children should trust that their parents will always come back but, gosh, that poor, scared baby dragon out there all night all alone not to mention the freaky crocodile that comes to coax him away it could all be a bit terrifying for some kids

    Good story about a baby dragon s resourcefulness, but I couldn t help but wonder why on earth didn t the mother dragon just take the baby with her Very cute illustrations done with ink, colored pencil, finger paint, collage and gouache on vellum.

    The KitKat liked it okay, but I wasn t impressed What kind of dragon goes off and leaves a baby all by itself for a whole night That s just wrong Let s see some adult supervision, please And where was the dragon baby daddy, hmm

    Cute concept, but kind of boring The dragon didn t really seem like a mythological character, but just any normal animal If we read a dragon book, we expect fire breathing or flying Just fell a bit flat for me and my little ones.

    L.T liked this one cute illustrations and I was kind of appalled at this storyline The Mama Dragon has to leave her Baby Dragon overnight while she goes to visit Grandma Dragon who is not feeling well She tells the Baby Dragon to wait for her by the red fern HOLD UP So this Mama Dragon is okay leaving her Baby Dragon overnight without anyone babysitting As an adult reading this I am wondering why doesn t she bring the dragon with her Does she really expect this dragon to sit by the red L.T liked this one cute illustrations and I was kind of appalled at this storyline The Mama Dragon has to leave her Baby Dragon overnight while she goes to visit Grandma Dragon who is not feeling well She tells the Baby Dragon to wait for her by the red fern HOLD UP So this Mama Dragon is okay leaving her Baby Dragon overnight without anyone babysitting As an adult reading this I am wondering why doesn t she bring the dragon with her Does she really expect this dragon to sit by the red fern And of course, Baby Dragon misses his mother and gets sadder and sadder while he waits A sneaky crocodile offers to bring Baby Dragon to his mother, but then he tells him he is going to bring the Baby Dragon to his kids so they can eat him Somehow Baby Dragon escapes, but then gets lost He manages to find his way to the red fern where he waits until his mother arrives She assures him she will always come back for him Obviously there are some life lessons in there like stranger danger that sneaky crocodile and separation anxiety, but I just wasn t a fan

    The mother just leaves the child for a whole day and night by himself with nothing to do Terrible parenting

    This is the first book I ve reviewed here that I strong DO NOT RECOMMEND The illustrations are the only redeeming quality of the book, but even that can t save it, it s that terrible Baby dragon is left to be supervised by a fern beside the river while his mother goes to visit the sickly grandmother dragon She assures the baby that she will be back by the next morning and conveys that he should stay by the fern and wait for her For awhile Baby Dragon is able to comply with his mother s instr This is the first book I ve reviewed here that I strong DO NOT RECOMMEND The illustrations are the only redeeming quality of the book, but even that can t save it, it s that terrible Baby dragon is left to be supervised by a fern beside the river while his mother goes to visit the sickly grandmother dragon She assures the baby that she will be back by the next morning and conveys that he should stay by the fern and wait for her For awhile Baby Dragon is able to comply with his mother s instructions, and even declines invitations from two friends to go play But then a strange crocodile invites him to leave and Baby Dragon decides to go The crocodile eventually reveals that he plans to feed the dragon to his children and Baby Dragon must escape He is able to find his way back to the fern and his mother returns not long after.I m sure the idea behind this story was to quell children s fears about being separated from parents or left alone However I don t think that incorporating the aspect potentially of being eaten by a crocodile is something that is really going to put a young child s fears at ease The author could ve achieved the same thing by simply having the dragon wander off, rather than essentially being kidnapped And then when the mother returns the whole thing is treated as a simple adventure and laughed off not an idea I want my children having about going off with strangers My 4 1 2 year old found the book scary, although my 3 1 2 year old was not.At the very least, please read this one yourself before sharing with children, otherwise it s a strong PASS from me

    The illustrations in this book are absolutely beautiful worthy of 5 stars Hence the 2 star rating instead of 1 star But the story line is just horrible What Mama leaves her baby with no supervision or food for 24 hours She says she has to go see Grandma who is sick, but why not take Baby Dragon Baby Dragon is good all day, but eventually gets scared enough to go with the crocodile who says he ll take Baby Dragon to his mama What the heck I get that you want to help kids overcome s The illustrations in this book are absolutely beautiful worthy of 5 stars Hence the 2 star rating instead of 1 star But the story line is just horrible What Mama leaves her baby with no supervision or food for 24 hours She says she has to go see Grandma who is sick, but why not take Baby Dragon Baby Dragon is good all day, but eventually gets scared enough to go with the crocodile who says he ll take Baby Dragon to his mama What the heck I get that you want to help kids overcome separation anxiety and teach them stranger danger, but holy cow This book just teaches fear and ridiculousness and somehow Baby Dragon escapes and all is good in the end What the heck No, just no Not recommended

    Maybe I just read too many children s books I have a collection of dragon stories, as young children tend to be highly engaged in the stories This, started out great I liked how he wanted to wait for his mother When the crocodile gets him on his back it reminded me of the fox and the gingerbread boy, which is a great opportunity to discuss if children have had that experience with the other text,Little dragon is brave, which lends itself to some open ended questioningwhen reunited, Maybe I just read too many children s books I have a collection of dragon stories, as young children tend to be highly engaged in the stories This, started out great I liked how he wanted to wait for his mother When the crocodile gets him on his back it reminded me of the fox and the gingerbread boy, which is a great opportunity to discuss if children have had that experience with the other text,Little dragon is brave, which lends itself to some open ended questioningwhen reunited, he s off to find frog to play just fell flat I felt it could have been better
