"My 4 year old daughter and 8 yr. old son love this book! I have been reading it to them since he was 3 or 4 and they both love the switch of the princess-like dragon and the dragon-like princess.
It allows them to feel like it's ok to be who they are. I think it helps them understand that being angry doesn't mean you are a bad person. The princess likes to be rough and tumble, and she's ok just as she is and so are all the children of the village when they want to escape and be with her, too!"
"I ordered this book for my twin granddaughters and they absolutely loved it. They tend to be dragons on occasion themselves. The Princess and the Dragon is a wonderful book for princesses who aren't always quite princesses. As with most Audrey Wood books, the illustrations are precious and colorful."
