Dragons Are Real by Valerie Budayr
What if I told you that all of the fairy tales, myths and legends that have been told about dragons over the years are WRONG? What if I told you that Dragons are indeed REAL and that they are different than you've ever imagined?Did you know that Dragons are the master of disguises? Did you know that they love sugar and sweets (at unacceptable levels) and will do anything for treats? Award winning author Valarie Budayr brings us this fairly true story based on her childhood friendship with a REAL live Dragon.
This is a very cute children's story about the "truth" and "falsehoods" about Dragons!
Very beautifully illustrated by Michael Welply, the pages will certainly captivate the younf listener/early reader.
I recommend this for Summer Reading Programs for children ages four to eight years.
I offer a Four Stars rating.
*This book was gifted me with no request for a positive review. This is my honest review.
