    "teaches without being didactic"

    For whatever reason, I'm revisiting books I read as a kid and books I read to my kids when they were little. I love Kenneth Grahame's way of never talking down to a child in his books. For those who love a good animal character, this one about the dragon, the kid, and St. George is a classic and it teaches diversity and individual identity in a way that no school book could.

    Story
    "THE HAPPY BOHEMIAN DRAGON"

    THE SIN OF ROMANCING
    I am normally a stickler for a dragon having an attitude, being selfish, etc., but I will make an exception for this story. I liked the story and I liked all the characters including the LAZY dragon. This is a fun read and teaches a lot about friendship.

    narrator
    Only four stars on the narrator, as he did not distinguish well between characters. At times I could not tell who was talking between the three main characters. It was not bad enough to stop you from listening to this. On sale now for $1.95 for almost an hour. That is less than minimum wage was when I was a kid.

    "well received by my 7 yr old boy"

    the narration is lovely, and my 1st grader gave the 4-5 star ratings, I didn't listen much, but seems like a good investment

    "My narration could not hold a candle"

    to Anton Lesser's narration. My children loved his telling of this wonderful tale. I foresee this being a frequently requested listen in our home.
