Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for WE BELONG TOGETHER

"Manga-like characterizations and a chunky, hip design deliver the cuddly sentiment with panache." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Children's Literature - Emily Griffin
This colorful board book ascribes a child's many personality traits to animals. Perfect for acting out, readers and listeners see the clever little snake, silly little monkey, trusty little puppy, and brave little tiger. Each page has a different bright background color and design. The baby animals, like young children, can be snuggly, happy, strong, playful, and kind. Bunny is gentle, Dragon is lucky, Rooster is chatty. The juxtaposition of these various emotions is fun, but also provides a nice message that it is important to be kind and strong. The caregiver reading this 13-page book has ample opportunities to enhance the brief text through questions, playing, and making animal sounds. The final page, a full spread, has a heart-shaped mirror and the words "Baby, I'm Lucky to have you!" Bubbly, cartoon-like illustrations, sturdy pages, and potential for interaction will mean multiple re-readings of this board book for youngsters. Reviewer: Emily Griffin

A baby's attributes are compared to a variety of animals."You are my lucky little dragon / my clever little snake / my happy little horsey / my snuggly little sheep...." Each page shows one heavily outlined, rounded and cuddly cartoon critter accompanied by a caption that presents the animal's label in an animated display type. Wan uses the Chinese zodiac as an unnamed framing device and also offers up a monkey, a rooster, a pig and a puppy, covering most of the animals in their correct astrological order (she swaps the rat for a mouse and the goat for a sheep). The final double-page spread includes a heart-shaped Mylar mirror and states, "Baby, I'm LUCKY to have you!" Set against subtly patterned backgrounds, the bold, friendly animals pop off the page with energy. As with Wan's previous offering Hug You, Kiss You, Love You (2013), the cover includes an unnecessary sparkly embellishment.While little ones will not get the analogies, they will be drawn to the playful images and loving message. (Board book. 3-18 mos.)

My Lucky Little Dragon 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Adorable! My husband bought this for my son and me (I've called him "my little dragon" since he was a newborn). The book goes through twelve animals and a characteristic about each animal (ie. "You are my lucky little dragon, my clever little snake, my happy little horsey, my snuggly little sheep, etc."). My son loves this book and it is a favorite of his. The last page has a plastic mirror in it, which he especially loves. If he ever destroys this book I will immediately buy a new one.
