Editorial Reviews

Quill and Quire
This book is an ideal tool for teaching water safety basics to early elementary children and preschoolers. At home on public and elementary school library shelves, it should even find its way into aquatic centre collections for instructional use.
Booklist
Rhyming couplets deliver safety lessons with a playful tone. Bright with fine lines of color, the pencil-crayon artwork has a cartoon look and plenty of entertaining details.

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
All parents worry about their kids around the water and often give them random and incomplete instructions regarding water safety. This book addresses that issue in a fun and very complete way. The main characters, a little girl and her friend dragon, spend the day at the beach frolicking in the water, searching for treasure, and chasing pirates. The little girl already knows quite a lot about water safety and takes it upon herself to teach the not-so water-wise dragon about the things to do and to look for every time one goes swimming. Some of the lessons that the dragon learns include: always have a buddy; the when, where and how to enter the water; where to swim; and when it is okay to dive. Rhyming text makes this story fun to read aloud and makes it move along quite quickly. The pencil crayon illustrations fill each page with lively detail. Along with the amusing story, the "Dragon's Water Safety Rhyme" and the water safety checklist that are included in the back of the book make this a recommended read.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A girl and her dragon friend go to the beach with her father and learn water-safety rules as they play at being pirates and finding treasure. The rhyming text works fairly well. Created in pencil crayon, the cartoon illustrations convey the lessons clearly for the most part. However, in one instance, the girl points to a no diving sign and tells her friend not to dive off the dock because of shallow water; then, according to the text, she jumps into the water and stands on her hands to illustrate. The accompanying picture shows her feet sticking straight up out of the water, possibly giving the mistaken impression that she actually dove in. A "Dragon's Water Safety Rhyme" and a safety checklist are included. This offering is on an important topic for which there is a scarcity of easy material. For this reason, it might be considered for purchase, although it's not particularly outstanding in text or art.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    I first checked this book out at the library to read to the 7 children I watch. But my grandson who is autistic wants this book read everyday.

    The story line is well written. The kids like the rhyming, and the characters have meaning.The story is also great for both boys and girls. It teaches kids about water safety, and my kids relate to what the characters are doing in the book (going to the beach). I bought the first book in this series ( Once Upon A dragon, stranger safety), and am buying the rest.
