How can you put the most rascally dragon to sleep? Turn the page very slowly, and whatever you do … Children are tasked with checking in on the sleeping dragon as the castle cook drops his pots and pans and when the knights throw a loud birthday party.
It isn’t until the whole kingdom settles down that the dragon wakes up. What is the kingdom to do?
This book is suitable for children between 3 and 7 years of age.
Don’t Wake the Dragon is a fantastic and interactive bedtime story featuring a sound-asleep dragon who under no circumstances is to be woken up! Designed to be read aloud and interacted with, parents will take pleasure in the playful text as much as children will enjoy gently rocking the book from side to side as they sing the dragon a lullaby. When the story finally comes to an end, and the gentle lullaby is repeated, the dragon (and the child!) is encouraged to drift off to sleep.The whimsical and colorful illustrations enable the dragon to jump off the page and will delight the reader with its humor and personality on every page. It creates a wonderful bedtime ritual with children that they will look forward to every night.
