We just finished reading aloud a set of three books this week for school. My Father's Dragon, and Elmer's Dragon and The Dragons of Blueland by Ruth Stiles Gannett. The kids ALL loved them. I would recommend that anyone with kids (especially boys) should read these three classic books. They had short chapters with lots of suspense, imagination and great pictures. We also did the lapbook from homeschoolshare.com that went with the first book My Father's Dragon. Homeschool share has lots of great hands-on resources to go with children's books. We have enjoyed quite a few of their lapbooks.
