Book Review and Activities: When a Dragon Moves In

This is one of those books I wish I had written. When a Dragon Moves In written by Jodi Moore and illustrated by Howard McWilliam is full of the imaginative and mischievous adventurers of a little boy and his new dragon friend.

If you are headed for the beach or if you have a sand box in your backyard, this book is wonderful for the summer. Why didn't I think of blaming a pet dragon for my mischievous deeds when I was a child? This little boy is brilliant. 

*Play in sand or at the beach
*Eat snow cones 
*Make a slip n slide in the back yard
*Freeze dollar store toys in a big bowl of water. Have your child chisel away to discover the treasure. 
*Eat dinner outside
*Have a sand castle building competition. 

You and your child will get a good laugh out of this book. 

Happy Reading,
