Dragons for Children

Dragons in mythology are supposed to be big, scary creatures who attack people with flame, and after they are tastily charbroiled, eat them. Yummy! But children’s books require friendly dragons, at least these days.

Most contemporary children’s books have a lesson. Call Me Tony and Zoe: Dragon princess do as well. On a broad level, they encourage children to not fear the dragons they find in life. On the specific level, the dragons are a role model for helping other people.

In Call Me Tony, the dragon makes friends with the town’s children. When the town chili roaster breaks, he roasts the chilies in the field, becoming a hero to the town. Available as an ebook and a paperback on Amazon 2/2/20 https://amzn.to/2G52vi1

In Zoe: Dragon Princess, the vain, little dragon uses her fire to rescue some Navajo children from wolves and in the process learns that helping others makes her feel good. Available as an ebook and paperback on Amazon 2/2/20 https://amzn.to/2t1JCE0 and as a pop-up-text ebook at https://amzn.to/2G5uC0H
