Children of all ages, but especially those age 4 to 9, think Denton the Dragon is as lovable as former generations found Snoopy the Dog (in Peanuts) or Garfield the Cat. They laugh at his naïve questions and they relate to his simple, but principled, approach to life.
Denton the Dragon in Tales of Bubbleland is a superior tool for providing character education for children in the early school years, and teaching them universal values.
That’s not just our opinion… ”Denton” has been endorsed by America’s leading proponent of character education, Dr. Richard Weissbourd. Dr. Weissbourd is child and family psychologist on the faculty of Harvard's Kennedy School of Government and School of Education. He is the author of “one of the top ten education books of all time,” according to the American School Board Journal, namely The Vulnerable Child, What Really Hurts America’s Children and What We Can Do About It. His latest book is The Parents We Mean to Be: How Well-Intentioned Adults Undermine Children's Moral and Emotional Development. (See www.richardweissbourd.com.)
The 19 Tales in the book, beautifully illustrated by Jerald Pope, each provide many opportunities for you to read to your child and interact during and after the story. Now, there's even an e-book version of Six Classic Tales of Bubbleland for you to enjoy with your family! You’ll be amazed at the ideas that occur to them during these warm, funny Tales, so encourage them to talk with you. If you want help in these discussions, use the suggestions at the end of each Tale.
Many of the Tales come with wonderful, original songs inspired by the stories or the characters. You can listen to, and/or purchase, these songs by clicking here. Unlike many songs for children, Denton the Dragon & Friends Present Songs of Bubbleland sound great to adults, too!
Do yourself and the kids you know a big favor… Introduce them to Bubbleland books and songs. You will love your trip to Bubbleland!
