Book Review/Giveaway: Ember the Dragon and the Birthday Surprise. Ends July 24th
Ember the Dragon and the Birthday Surprise by Author Kay Lynne Virgin
About the Book: Just how much trouble can a little dragon cause?
Join Ember the Dragon as he receives a surprise birthday visit from his three grandchildren Amber, Char, and Soot in this delightful tale of learning, love, and humor. Little Soot is very small and just learning his new dragon skills. In his first traveling excursion, things don’t go exactly as planned and problems arise as his new skills are put to the test and finds catastrophe waiting instead.
My Review: In the far away land of Forever After, lived a Dragon named Ember. It’s his birthday and he wasn’t sure how many birthdays he has celebrated. Was it 120…175…200? But he wasn’t worried because dragons live very long lives. As he sat outside his cave looking out to the field he wonder how it would be like to be tiny as he watch a hummingbird, for he wasn’t born small.
As he sat thinking his grandchildren were flying in to see him. Ember was overjoyed to see his grandchildren Amber, Char and Soot. Nothing was better than spending time with his grandchildren, for him it was a perfect present for his birthday.
Amber and Char flew in and landed perfectly hugging their grandfather as they waited for Soot who struggles with landing. As he flew in his landing was out of control and soon he came crashing to the ground and made a giant hole. Soot felt hopeless as a dragon and question why he’s so uncoordinated. Will he ever be able to do anything right?
Ember sat his grandchildren down and told them how as a young dragon he didn’t always do things right the first time. He told them how it took him a lot of tries before anything worked out correctly. Soot was encouraged by Ember’s story.
We know that persistence and practice always pays off. A very encouraging story for children and I highly recommend this book.
