Don't Wake the Dragon by Bianca schulze

Don’t Wake the Dragon

Don’t Wake the Dragon is a fantastic, interactive bedtime story featuring a sound-asleep dragon who, under no circumstances, is to be woken up! Children are tasked with checking in on the sleeping dragon as the castle cook drops his pots and pans and when the knights throw a loud birthday party. It isn’t until the whole kingdom settles down that the dragon wakes up. What is the kingdom to do? Designed to be read aloud and interacted with, parents will take pleasure in the playful text as much as children will enjoy gently rocking the book from side to side as they sing the dragon a lullaby. When the story finally comes to an end, and the gentle song is repeated, the dragon (and the child!) is encouraged to drift off to sleep.
