When a Dragon Moves in Again earns the CLC Seal of Approval
When you're a young boy and your mother is expecting a new baby, it's only natural to be less than thrilled at the prospect of sharing your home with a new little person. But everything is better when you have a pet dragon, even dealing with the annoyance of accepting a new sibling. For instance, it's a given that your dragon will want to play in the baby's new crib. And when your sister keeps insisting the baby will be a girl, even though you want it to be a boy, your dragon can't be blamed for spilling your sister's juice. No matter the issue or area of frustration, a dragon can help. But mostly, when you come to realize that babies aren't so bad after all, your pet dragon will always be there to help you sing your new baby to sleep.
Jodi Moore's When a Dragon Moves in Again is a lusciously imaginative children's picture book laden with fanciful scenarios that will entertain and delight young readers. Illustrations by Howard McWilliam are the crowning glory of this lovely book which is highly recommended for home and school libraries.
