Todays book is You've Got Dragons by Kathryn Cave.
Worries, fears, and anxieties are all dragons that sneak up on most of us at one time or another.
Lots of people get dragons. Even really really good people get them. And sometimes they are hard to get rid of. So what can a young boy with a bad case of the dragons do? He can pretend they are not there, or that they are really quite harmless. Hugs from his mom help. Looking his dragon straight in the eye at least once every day helps even more. But most reassuring of all is the reminder that dragons don't stay forever.
Kathryn Cave's lighthearted writing style and illustrator Nick Maland's appealing pen-and-ink drawings exaggerate the humor of the text without minimizing the seriousness of the underlying themes. It is the perfect read-aloud story for young children whose fears can sometimes get the better of them.
