In addition to my Sparky introductions I wanted to do a little about the library so we can tie in some conversation about story time behavior and library services. I have always loved Eric Kimmel's book I took my frog to the library for introducing library themes, so I re-made the story and filled it with dragons. Thus, I took my dragon to the library! (The title just screams trouble!)
My dragons really love to read, so, I decided to take them to the library. They can be a handful, so I took them one at a time. On Monday, I took my Purple Dragon to the library. My Purple Dragon loves books, but her long claws kept poking holes in them.
On Wednesday I took my Pink Dragon to the library. She went right over to the picture books and started reading. But, she left lots of shiny scales behind and made a big mess.
On Thursday I took my Blue Dragon to the library. My Blue Dragon has a very long tail and when he ran too fast around the library he bumped into people and knocked shelves over. He had to run home.
On Friday I took my Yellow Dragon to the library. My Yellow Dragon loves story time, but she has really big wings and they blocked all of the other kids from seeing the books. She also talked so much that no one could hear the librarian read.
On Saturday I took my Green Dragon to the library. My Green Dragon is very well behaved. He handled the books gently, he smiled nicely at the babies, he cleaned up his messes, he walked carefully around the library, and he sat quietly in story time. But, my Green Dragon has allergies and he sneezed and caught the librarian's hair on fire!
The nice people at the library told me that I can come visit whenever I want, but from now on my dragons all have to stay at home. My dragons don't mind because I bring all of their favorite books and movies home to them. Except my Green Dragon, I can't afford to let him set and library books on fire.
My dragons and most other pieces are made from craft foam. I found a cute clip art image that I used for the shape of the dragons and free handed the rest. The librarian's hair is yarn that I really did light on fire (at home, not in the library!)
