MiL has been telling DD about scary dragons. She now wakes regularly at night now saying bad dreams mummy, dragons eat me up.

So can anyone help me find a book, preferably a board book, about nice friendly dragons, suitable for a 2.3 year old.

We've got this one at home - The Princess and the Dragon which is about a wild princess and a gentle ballet and music loving dragon who swap roles.

George's Dragon by Claire Freedman! It's about a very, very nice dragon indeed. No one could be scared of dragons after reading it!

What about Florrie's Dragons? It's a TV program but I'm sure there must be a book??

or there is a book - tell me a story daddy, again can't think of author. I bought it in a discount bookshop and it is a little girl and a daddy making up a story about her dragon toys

Just had a quick check on Amazon and you can get the Zog story as a board book for under a fiver!

We love it in our house. My DS has had it since just after he turned two and he is obsessed with it, particular the bit where a bear appears to be biting Zog's tail. The illustrations are nice and the dragons all look friendly and a bit dopey - nothing to upset your DD here. Also a great message, particularly for little girls, in there too.

Custard the dragon by Ogden Nash. Who couldn't do with some Ogden Nash in their life ?

Idris the dragon from Ivor The Engine is a lovely friendly dragon - not a board book unfortunately, but appealing enough to conquer any fear!

Knight Time is lovely and gentle, about how people are scared of dragons, but dragons are also scared of people, and then they all make friends. It is very sweet.

The Worst Princess. May be a bit old for 2 - my 3yo is just beginning to enjoy it. Basically a feminist fable in which the princess ditches her prince and runs off with a playful dragon instead.

That's not my dragon.

"Three cheers, Charlie Dragon!" is quite popular with my 2 year old. Although she currently has Gruffalo fever. smile

What I Found in Dragon Wood. By Gwen Millward? Can't remember, sorry!

Sorry, just read the 'boardbook' bit - this isn't one. Although, bit of a faff, but you could contact paper pages to stop her tearing non-board books (this is what my DM did when I was small and had a habit of eating the bottoms of the pages. blush )

Again by Emily Gravett is a good one - it's about a small dragon being read a bed-time story.

dennis the dragon is nice and it rhymes too so fun to read with wee ones.

Dragon in A Wagon (although that's more about a dog)
Sir Charlie Stinky Socks has a non-scary dragon in it too.
Mike the Knight.

Zog is lovely. There is a series called Florrie's Dragons on Disney Junior with friendly dragons too - very sweet, my son (3.5) loves it.

I read Zog, on request, to DD (6) tonight. She's had it for 3? Years now, still loves it.

Knight time, lovely book about cute boy who is scared of dragons.

BobblesAndClips Tue 02-Apr-13 22:00:38

Ah, it's not a board book though, sorry

We have 'When Dragons are Dreaming' by James Mayhew and Lindsey Gardiner out of the library at the moment, it's the last story DD (2.8) has before going to sleep, she loves it. It's got fairies and a baby dragon smile

We have one called Too Hot To Hug - not sure who it's by but WH Smith had it in recently cos that's where we got it - again, story book not a board book though.

And Zog.

(Daddy likes books with dragons in so I either buy 'em or he'll carry out his threat to read a 1year old The Hobbit and the entire LOTR trilogy)
