New Review of Children’s Book, Drystan the Dragon and Friends!

What children do not love dragons? I love dragons too! That is why I began this series for children to enjoy and learn at the same time about valuable life lessons of sharing, caring and helping others. Bring Drystan the Dragon home with you for your children to enjoy today.

Watch for Book 2 coming in 2020 and Books 3 & 4 in 2021. There will be six books in the series. This series is a fun way for children to learn the letter ‘D’ and colors. The dragons are all colorfully illustrated in different colors and their names all begin with the letter ‘D’. Thank you so much!

If you haven’t checked out Book 1 in this new series for children, Drystan the Dragon and Friends, go to Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Here is a new review below that made my day.

5 Star Review: As a grandmother, I know how important friends are to our children and who better to show the way than two beautifully illustrated dragons. As parents and grandparents, we seek to purchase books that will capture the imagination, while teaching valuable life lessons.

Award Winning Author Janice Spina and her husband John (illustrator) has created this amazing first book, in this dragon series. 

Brightly colored illustrations will capture the child’s imagination as they read, or as an adult reads to them. The rhymes will stick in their mind, as he or she discovers a friendship between a red dragon named Drystan and a blue dragon named Durward.

The adventure unfolds in the Land Of Rainbows, where the two dragons extend their friendship to a colorful mother blue bird and her family, while lessons about helping others are learned.

I highly recommend this book as a good bedtime story, or go anywhere travel book. Five more books in this series are in the creative process. I invite you to purchase ‘Drystan the Dragon and Friends Series Book 1’ and watch for each new dragon book as it is published.
