ABOUT THE BOOK
Who Loves the Dragon?
Written by Bianca Schulze
Illustrated by Samara Hardy
Publisher’s Synopsis: In this interactive follow-up to Don’t Wake the Dragon, our beloved Dragon is wide-awake and preparing to celebrate one of the kingdom’s most important events of the year: the annual Friendship Festival! It’s a time for everyone to gather and have fun, all honoring their meaningful friendships. But on the day of the feast, the cooks are called away to cater to the Queen and the knights must report for special duty in the Enchanted Forest. With everyone gone, Dragon is upset and worried that this year’s Friendship Festival is doomed. Could they be planning something special for her? And in the meantime, can you help cheer her up? With colorful and humorous illustrations throughout, this read-aloud picture book encourages kids to interact with the text on every page. Young readers will love waving to characters, blowing kisses, dancing, and more on this fun ride alongside Dragon and her adorable friends in this delightful story that will beg to be read again and again.
Ages 3-6 | 32 Pages | Publisher: Clever Publishing | ISBN-13: 978-1951100438

Tomorrow is #WRAD – World Read-Aloud Day! I’m excited to be reading several of my picture books to classes in Florida, NY, Brooklyn, NY, Louisville, Kentucky, and Kansas. And on Sunday, I had the honor of sharing my new FROM HERE TO THERE book with the 5th graders at the Ambassador International School in Dubai. The kids and teachers were amazing! And guess what? They want me to come back to read MAKING THEIR VOICES HEARD to their 3rd grade students!
I hope you all have a wonderful week! Please stay safe and well.
