When a Dragon Goes to School by author Caryl Hart and illustrator Rosalind Beardshaw

Reading Age: 3 – 6 years

Grade Level: Preschool – 4

Publisher: Magination Press

Publication Date: August 3, 2021

Through a dragon’s deeds, children learn what is and is not appropriate at school. Tasks include: hanging up a coat, greeting the teacher, sitting with others, mealtime, sharing, helping, using school materials, and leaving at the end of the day. Throughout this rhyming picture book, the author asks a question about a dragon’s negative behavior. The response is always, “Why, no! Dragon’s don’t do that!” The author then gives the acceptable behavior. Children will love chiming in with the repeated phrase. In the illustrations, opposite behaviors are easily understood.
