I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

The Different Dragon

The Different Dragon
by Jennifer Bryan

Two Lives Publishing
September 15, 2006
32 pages

reading level: ages 4 - 8

from the back cover: "This bedtime story about bedtime stories shows how the wonderful curiosity and care of a little boy, with some help from his willing mom, can lead to magical and unexpected places. Join Noah and his cat, Diva, on this nighttime adventure and you too will leave with an unforgettable new dragon friend!"

I bought this because it was listed as recommended after I read "And Tango Makes Three" but mainly because it's a children's book about dragons.

The reason for the recommendation is that Noah has two moms. They get less than two sentences worth of mention but your kids might ask about it.

The story is cute, a little boy asks his mom to tell him a bedtime story. He meets "the meanest Dragon in all of Dragon County", fire-breathing and everything. The twist is that this dragon doesn't like to be mean. I'll let you read to find out how Noah and his cat help.

This one is fun and I do purchase children's books for me but this one would have made a better library book.
