***** Review *****
The story centers around a little dragon ready to grow up and compete against his big brothers.
He wants to breathe fire like his big brothers, but he can’t on his own. He tries and tries. He uses everything he knows about fire to try to breathe it. He’s not having much luck with his fire breathing, a little owl redirects him to the one person who knows how to get the little dragon what he needs.
The little dragon trots back home. His dragon mom explains that the magic of fire breathing will come when he’s ready for it. You just can’t push the magic of growing up.
A great book with cute and funny illustrations to add to the story of the little dragon’s tale of growing up.
