A book for kids 8 and up that delivers social-emotional learning with the wild fun of DRAGONS. Brief stories, personality quizzes, and hands-on activities are designed to help a child identify and celebrate his or her own dragon-like qualities, including the ability to overcome fears, discover your creativity and passion, understand and harness emotions, and more.


"Taken all together, this book should help fantasy-focused kids with their self-esteem, confidence, and fears; it’s all made the more enjoyable with Demmer’s friendly artwork. This book is on fire.” —Kirkus Reviews
