How to Draw a Dragon by Douglas Florian

Part drawing lesson. Part tribute to dragons as pets.

Thoughts: Fun, fun, fun. I love dragons and I love Florian's childlike illustrations. They have definite kid appeal. Would pair well with various dragon poems.

  • “Dragon Tree” from Poetrees by Douglas Florian 
  • “Shopping at the Dragon Store” from I’ve Lost My Hippopotamus by Jack Prelutsky 
  • “Don the Dragon’s Birthday” from Falling Up by Shel Silverstein

How to Draw a Dragon also functions as an art lesson.

Themes: Dragons, Drawing, Pets
