This new Interactive Picture Book is going to be a big hit at story time! Enter the Giveaway below to win a copy of Who Loves the Dragon, plus more.
Do you love interactive picture books as much as we do?
I, of course, love any book that gets my kids excited about reading, but I have a special place in my heart for interactive picture books that really get my kids involved in the story. And since they’re always the first books picked at story time, I know my kids feel the same way.
So, we couldn’t be more excited to share this new interactive picture book with you today! Who Loves the Dragon by Bianca Schulze, illustrated by Samara Hardy has completely stolen our hearts.
We are big fans of Schulze’s first picture book, Don’t Wake the Dragon (affiliate link), which has been on bedtime repeat at our house for months. As soon as we saw that our favorite big red dragon was making another picture book appearance, we pre-ordered our copy!
And since we haven’t got our copy yet, we’re so happy that the author sent us a PDF version to read and review. I have so many good things to say about it!
Note: the Amazon links in this post are affiliate links. Also, I partnered with The Children’s Book Review and the author Bianca Schulze to bring you this review and giveaway. Review opinions are 100% my own.
What is Who Loves the Dragon About?
In Don’t Wake the Dragon, little readers had the fun task of trying to keep a big, red, rascally dragon asleep. In Who Loves the Dragon, that big, red, rascally dragon is back, but this time she’s both wide awake and full of big feelings! Instead of putting her to sleep, little readers have the delightful job of trying to cheer her up.
Dragon has been looking forward to spending time with her friends at the annual Friendship Festival, so when she finds out that none of her friends will be able to make it to the festival, she’s very disappointed. But it will be hard for Dragon to stay sad for too long as little readers interact with the text to help her feel better.
After sharing positive affirmations, a good joke, some cheerful dancing, and a few more clever tricks both Dragon and her little readers will be smiling!
The long and short of it is that we LOVE this Dragon!
Schulze’s charming interactive story paired with Samara Hardy’s bright and fun illustrations is a winning combination. Who Loves the Dragon is one of those books that kids will keep pulling off the shelf to read over and over again. And with its tight prose and good humor, it’s also one of those books that parents won’t mind re-reading.
In addition to being fun to read and well-illustrated, I also think it’s a useful picture book for kids. I’m not someone who thinks that every children’s book needs to have capital M meaning – a book can just be fun. In fact, I think the best children’s books are first and foremost fun for kids to read. That being said, I love it when a book can do both.
Who Loves the Dragon gets five stars for entertainment value, but I also love that it gives kids real and useful actions to take when they are feeling unhappy or disappointed. It’s a double winner in my book.
We highly recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a great interactive picture book experience.
This book is out on February 16, 2021. You can find it here on Amazon.
