I previously had a different book blog, and I had a bunch of problems with the hosting company I used for the blog, and all of my content was deleted. I managed to salvage some of my reviews from back then by compiling what I wrote on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles review sections. See some that I have already posted here.
Written by Erik Peterson and illustrated by Mina Sanwald, “The Dragon and the Princess” shares the joy of friendship as readers count from 1 to 10 and back down again. With fun-filled illustrations and memorable text, it will be a book that gets read over and over again.
I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. The Dragon and The Princess is a counting book. I like how it counts up to 10 and then back down to 1. The illustrations depict a family of dragons, and their princess playmate. I am not a huge fan of the illustrations, but I don’t really have any reason. They are bright and colorful, and well made, I just don’t like the drawing style. I do like how the illustrations let you count the number of items that the words are showing, like 10 marbles, or 7 swords, because I have seen some counting books that the pictures don’t actually add up with the story. I will give this book to my nephew, and I am sure he will love it.
