Lilah's review of Dragon Was Terrible

Meet Lilah, 5th grader

Thanks to a conference I attended back in July facilitated by Olga Nesi from NYC, I learned about her "Reading Ambassador" program.  I loved the idea and have started one here in my own school with 16 fifth graders.  So far it is going really well.  They have been busy reading, reviewing and preparing for a couple of author/illustrator visits we have next week.

Here are a few fun facts Lilah:

Age: 10
Favorite food: Steak
Favorite book: Big Nate series
Favorite author ever met at school: Kwame Alexander
Favorite subject in school: ELA
Career?:  Teacher

Today, Lilah read The Dragon Was Terrible and offers this review:

The book Dragon Was Terrible by Kelly DiPucchio and illustrated by Greg Pizzoli was a great book. Even though it is for 5-7 year olds, older kids will like it, too, because it’s funny and the illustrations are colorful.

The book is about a dragon that was terrible and ruined books and other things by coloring in books, stomping on flowers and spitting on cupcakes.  When the king was fed up with the dragon, he sent the knights to search for him. Is the dragon ever found?  If so, do the knights arrest him?  You’ll have to read the book to find out!

It also has easy words so kids who are just  learning how to read will be able to read it on their own.

Thanks, Lilah, for the review!
