Be The Dragon 9 Keys to Unlocking Your Inner Magic written by Catherine J. Manning and illustrated by Melanie Demmer is a beautiful workbook to stimulate your child’s creativity and imagination. This book published by Workman Publishing begins with a Know Yourself Quiz to determine “What type of dragon are you?” From there, you can determine what type of dragon you are! Are you a water dragon, air dragon, ground dragon, fire dragon, or moon dragon?
In this book, you will find hands-on activities, quests and quizzes, exciting stories, and vibrant illustrations. Through these activities, your child can reflect on overcoming fears, increasing confidence, social skills, and stimulating problem-solving situations.
These activities can be done in the classroom or at home. For the classroom, teachers can find this book a great group activity to target social-emotional goals. Additional goals include improving vocabulary, recalling information, figurative language, and following directions. For example, Finding Your Roar can help a child learn the power of their own voice. This can be especially beneficial for those children that have difficulty initiating conversation with others.
