Even dragons can’t resist a good story…

Even though Leo would rather sit at home and read, his parents send him out into the world in the hopes that Leo will become a famous knight. But when Leo comes up against the land’s most fearsome beasts, he soon discovers that scary monsters enjoy a good book as much as anyone…

What a super cute book! Little Leo is sent out to fight a dragon but it's really not his thing! He much more enjoys reading a good book (a knight after my own heart).  As we goes along he encounters different beasts and ends up battling them all with the power of stories! I love that it shows him staying true to who he is and showing how that can be wonderful! And I love that his family sees it too in the end! A great little message for kids to hear. 

Media Thoughts:  For sure I would add! Plus I'm planning on reading it to my 2nd graders to talk about finding a book that fits you.  And - there is a website where kids can pledge to be kind and caring (see below!).  I can see a ton to do with this book!
