Babies will enjoy learning to recognize the adorable farm animals in this board book with wooden beads. Five beads embedded into the book function as a rattle and later as a tool for helping readers count the farm animals along with George. Beautiful patterns and a reasonable price help make this an ideal choice for gift baskets.
The book deals with decisions made by the characters that would affect their future lives. How it affects their lives is surprising and unpredictable. In these stories, the characters are driven by their egos. The results are sometimes good and sometimes bad and sometimes it is up to the reader's opinion.
What do you get when dragons combine their hoards? What do you get when you take a little slice of dragon lore? "The Dragons' Beads" features the work of Elizabeth Buckley, Niels Van Eekelen, Athena Garcia, Ollie Lambert, Douglas J. Moore, Meghan Proctor, Jo Anne Spiese, Kristina Stumpf & Michael Camp, and Rachel Wookey. This is the first volume of what is hoped to be a multi volume project highlighting essays, art, poetry, and short stories featuring and/or about dragons. Originally it was supposed to be a contest to highlight the best dragon stories and poems from young authors. The project had to be adjusted due to an initial lack of submissions. Perhaps future volumes will be able to have more competition, and it is hoped that in the future THG StarDragon Publishing will be able to afford having cash prizes to fuel writer's interest in exchange for featuring the "beads" of their stories. Submissions for the next volume are open, and instructions can be found at www.thgstardragon.com for those interested in participating.
