Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring! I read this to my 5 and 2 yr old and they love it. My 5 year old is able to understand that reading is essential and everyone loves a book now and then while my toddler just loves that there is Dragon who would plead to be read a story to. They enjoy this book every time we read it.
