These books are awesome. Truly great life lessons toned down and made entertaining to capture the imagination and leave a lasting impression.
Helped my 4 year old
Was having an issue with minor lying from my 4-year-old. The book was a great way to explain, in age-appropriate terms and in a way that didn't make her feel like she was in trouble, what lying is and why it is not something to continue to do.
Diggory Doo is absolutely precious! The flow of the story is easy to follow. My daughter was 3 when we first got the book and she still loves it! These books prompt conversations and she loves to point out when the dragon does good things vs. not so good. We are excited to buy other books in this series!!
Im a child psychologist and mother of 3 kids. when my 4 year old was struggling making friends at school we read this book and practiced the dragons skills together. He came home the next day and enthusiastically reported he made a new friend. This is a lovely story with good examples of what not to do and how to behave to make new friends. I will likely begin to use this book in my clinical work with young kids struggling with social skills and recommend to parents.
I love this book! I love that it's from a small author/illustrator (I can't wait to support their other works since I loved this one!). I bought this based on some review photos that showed specific content from the book, and I loved that there's step by step, specific advice for making friends rather than a nuanced general lesson/theme that only an adult or older kid may grasp. My son is on the spectrum and my daughter is starting kindergarten after years of quarantine, so I thought this would be the perfect boost for them to help them get their feet wet socializing. They love this book just as much as I do. Well done!
