The boys and I listened, minus the songs, to The Dragon King a few days ago. It’s an adorable story about a young king and his battle with a dragon. A six-year-old burn victim whom the author met briefly many years ago is the inspiration behind the book. After writing the story, the author pushed it aside because it did not feel complete. Years later when Vivian Slade accidentally stumbled upon the written story she contemplated what was missing and decided adding songs and music would complete the story and thus The Dragon King with audio was born.
The story is well told even without the musical numbers and the boys eagerly listened to the entire story. I love the add-ons that are available at the end of the book, a fantastic way to turn the book into a lesson for the teachers out there, and they will release a values curriculum by early fall. I would certainly recommend this book and at the lowest price yet, it’s a steal to get both the e-book and the audio version. Plus when you buy both, you’ll help them meet their goal of donating books.
Over the next three years, The Dragon King plans to give away 1,000,000 copies of the book to empower children around the world to become their own HERO! But, they need your help to meet that goal either through a direct donation or by purchasing both the Kindle and the audio version of the book.
