In a rare moment of down time (between two baseball games on Sunday) I was reading several picture books from the library to my four year old when we stumbled upon a book that made him laugh...a perfect #booksmiles book.
In Dan Bar-el's "Not Your Typical Dragon" Crispin is about to turn seven. With the other fire-breathing dragons of his family looking on, Crispin is looking forward to lighting his own cake. However, instead of fire, whipped cream comes out. After a trip to the doctor doesn't help, Crispin runs away from his home. Crispin meets Sir George, a young knight sent out to slay a fire breathing dragon. In a duel, Crispin can only manage bubbles. The two begin a friendship as Sir George tries to help Crispin with his problem.
When they return home, their fathers engage in a duel of their own! Crispin saves the day! Packed with colorful, funny illustrations, exaggeration, and relatable characters (even Crispin the dragon!), this book puts a smile on your face while teaching powerful lessons!
