Once Upon a Dragon: Stranger Safety for Kids (and Dragons)
Format: Hardcover
Authors: Jean E Pendziwol
ISBN10: 1553377222
Published: 2006-02-01 After a thump-bumping ride on a slide, a little girl and her dragon friend find themselves inside a fairy-tale book. The stories are familiar, and there's lots of silly fun as the dragon is transformed into fairy-tale characters. But danger lurks in the form of strangers -- including the hungry wolf from "Little Red Riding Hood" and Snow White's evil stepmother. And it's up to the girl to keep an eye on the dragon, who walks alone through deep dark woods and takes treats from people he doesn't know. Little by little, the girl teaches her irrepressible friend to be careful about strangers. The winning combination of fairy-tale adventure and concrete safety information -- including the Dragon's Stranger Safety Rhyme and the checklist of rules at the end of the book -- provide the perfect starting point for discussions with children about stranger safety.

Using different fairy ...

Using different fairy tales and a dragon, this book gives all sorts of scenarios in which we are able to talk to kids in various ways about how sometimes, we need to be on the lookout for danger. Strangers are not always bad, but if we don't know them we need to be careful.

WONDERFUL book that is...

WONDERFUL book that is fun and presents the huge message of not talking to strangers. The boy in the book travels with his friend the dragon into a book. They see many bad characters that the boy knows NOT to talk to or believe their lies.

This was a cute little...

This was a cute little book about a dragon and a girl who knows all about "stranger danger." Cute, not too scary way to address the issue. I liked that it took place in a fairy tale and so the kids could easily identify who the bad people were, but then it got a little less clear, like in real life. It was kind of like scaffolding how to deal with unknown people. Reading Level: 1.8 Interest Level: K-3

Once Upon a Dragon is ...

Once Upon a Dragon is a story about a book and his fairytale friend the Dragon. Together they get stuck inside a book and must travel through the fairytale stories to make it to the end. It is a fun adaptation to numerous well known fairytales. The student readers, like the boy, already know these tales and can watch as the boy and dragon maneuver through the tales to avoid the trouble. This helps children with problem solving and prediction while giving them a sense of accomplish of overcoming, like many wonder tales do. The book is also fully written in a rhyming scheme. This is something small but so enjoyed by the kids when it feels like a song almost. They stay attached to the book and the plot because the rhythm keeps a fluid, consistent motion throughout.

This is an interesting...

This is an interesting book about how a little boy and his friend Dragon (who is an actual dragon) go for a day at the park but end up in the chapters of a story book. The little boy does not trust any of the characters in this book, including the wolf and the three little pigs. He knows that they are strangers to him and Dragon. By the end of the book, everything relies on Dragon to get them back home. He blows through the end pages of the story book and they wind up back in the park. This is wonderful book to teach children not to talk or trust strangers because they can always tell you the wrong thing or lead you down the wrong path.
