Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Written by an elementary school teacher and storyteller, this picture book is a delightful story about three little dragons and their desire to buy a present for someone special. Even a three-year-old can identify with this common problem. The Good Knight instructs the small creatures, "The most special gifts do not come from a store. They come from our hearts and our hands, nothing more." Being a retired elementary teacher, I tried to instill this very same lesson in my students, as well as my own children at home. As the three little dragons attempt to make a present they repeatedly make a huge mess. Thankfully the little dragons are shown cleaning up their own messes. I think this is a worthy lesson that needs repeating and she does. Twice more the dragons tried to make a gift and end up with a disaster. The clean up routine is repeated again and again. The repetition throughout the book will help keep young ones involved. There are many incidents in this charming whimsical story that are a perfect springboard to a character lesson, making this book a valuable asset to any primary classroom. Bright colorful illustrations are endearing with great attention to detail. My two-year-old grandson loved this book and I'm sure you will too. 2006, Dutton Children's Books, Ages 4 to 7.
—Ann Sanger
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-In this addition to the series, the knight's dragons try to make a birthday present for a friend and enlist the young knight's help. However, attempts to make a cake and a card and put on a magic show result in complete messes. At midnight, the dragons cry "drippy droppy dragon tears" and explain that the gifts were meant for him. The Good Knight reassures them and a merry birthday celebration ensues. Plecas's charming ink-and-watercolor illustrations enhance the setting and mood of this sweet, well-told story. The use of repetition and word patterns makes this a fine purchase for beginning readers.-Bobbee Pennington, Bryan Public Library, TX Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    We picked this book up from K's school library. The Good Knight

    We picked this book up from K's school library.
    The Good Knight series is a fun and repetitive series of books. We got a good laugh at the messes that the dragons ended up making while trying to make something special for a birthday person. The lesson that was taught within this story is one that is perfect for little ones to learn about. It is the thought of giving a gift from the heart instead of having money to give something. It is pretty much the thought that counts.  
    This is a good book for the early readers to read. The pictures are funny and we get to see what the dragons are going to be up to next.
