That’s right! It’s been awhile, but I’m back with more children’s reading recommendations for gamer parents with young kids. Here we go!
George and the Dragon, by Chris Wormell
The story of a fierce fire breathing dragon with a terrible psychological flaw and his new, impoverished but upwardly mobile neighbor. This book is not what you expect. It’s short and its fun. The art is great, too. If your kid loves dragons, this needs to be in your library.
Vampirina Ballerina, by Anne Marie Pace (Illus. LeUyen Pham)
Here’s one for you World of Darkness fans, you Camarilla members, goths and gothic lovers. First up, LeUyen Pham is a fantastic illustrator and has been attached to a lot of good projects (I’ll give the Hillary Clinton puff piece a pass because my personal biases shouldn’t diminish the quality of the art). This is a cute book and my daughter’s new favorite. It really speaks to being the new kid, being out of step, and coming together as a team. Oh, and it has vampires. BTW, for fashionistas-in-training, I can also recommend another LeUyen Pham illustrated book, Shoe-La-La.
When a Dragon Moves in Again, by Jodi Moore
What?! Jodi Moore wrote a follow up to When a Dragon Moves In? I haven’t even read it and I’m going to recommend it. That’s how good it’s predecessor was.
