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.
