We’ve been a huge How to Train Your Dragon family ever since the first movie came out. My boys were so obsessed that we even went to the Live show when it was around, which was AMAZING. They have the toys and they have the different movies and movie shorts. They watch them over and over. A couple of years ago I came across the Cressida Cowell books that the movies and TV series were based upon. And guess what…my kids NEVER read them. NEVER. I had purchased two. I was a little heartbroken about it. I mean I thought I was going to win with this one.
However, the other night when I said they all needed to stop what they were doing and go do some reading, my oldest said he didn’t have a book (which is impossible, we have TONS of books). I grabbed this one off the shelf. He shrugged his shoulders and sat down to read. Then guess what….HOOKED. He’s completely hooked on the series and is reading book #2 now. Now he voluntarily stops to go read without a shoulder shrug and a sigh. He just needed to give it a chance.
You can find this book at Amazon.
