I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
Ellie May finds out that her toy dragon, Ben, can turn full-size! The first night he does this, he takes her to a party at his castle! When the sun comes up, Ben asks her if she wants to stay and play. As much as she wants to, she realizes how tired she is and that sleep is important:
“But first, I need some sleep:
it’s important you know.
It helps me stay healthy,
and it helps me to grow!”
So, they go home and go to bed so that they can be ready for the day ahead.
Ellie May & Her Toy Dragon, Ben is a picture book with amazing illustrations that are bright and colorful that children will enjoy. It is a fun fantasy told in verse. Children will like this story. It will spark their imagination and help teach them the importance of sleep.
