Reading is one of the best ways to escape reality and let little imaginations run wild. Mermaids, kings and queens, talking animals, and enchanted forests are just a few of the characters that leave children in awe and wonder. Dragons have the same effect on some children. They might get lost daydreaming about being a dragon, flying with a dragon, or even just seeing a dragon! If you have a child who is fascinated by dragons and their mythical worlds, be sure to check out the list of books below. They’re all about dragons!
