Dragon Dancing at the Library

In the preschool picture book Dragon Dancing, by Carole Lexa Schaefer and illustrated by Pierre Morgan, young children show us the wonder and fun of learning. After reading a book about dragons with their teacher, these inventive preschoolers decide to make their own dragon out of colored paper, yarn, feathers, and . . . themselves! Soon they're out the door, onto the playground, and into another world--the world of imagination. Becoming a magnificent dragon, the children dance over snowy mountains, through tall forests, and into whispery meadows, before returning to school for a wonderful birthday treat.
At the Alpine Township KDL Library, pre-schoolers did just that, making their own dragon outfits and travelling in the world of imagination. They even created their own firecrackers, also known as bubble wrap.

The kids thoroughly enjoyed the activities

The bubble wrap served well as a substitute for chinese firecrackers
