“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 good values.
That’s not just our opinion… Denton the Dragon 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.)
Children relate very strongly with Denton’s naïve approach to life. He asks the questions that they wish they could, such as why a child might be in a wheelchair, or why years don’t have names. His innate goodness and honesty resonate, and help children develop a sense that kindness and integrity are not weaknesses. Every Tale teaches a different moral that imparts good values like honesty, courtesy, and taking personal responsibility.
