The Children’s Book Review | December 21, 2019
There’s no doubt about it! Our most anticipated picture book of 2020 is Don’t Wake the Dragon—written by bestselling author and the founder of The Children’s Book Review, Bianca Schulze. We’re completely biased, but it truly is such a fun bedtime picture book that we know you’re going to love as much as us. Samara Hardy’s illustrations pop from the pages and captivate right from the front cover with the bold red dragon and shiny silver stars.
Since today is the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, it’s the perfect time to introduce you to this rascally dragon who will no-doubt become a staple in your bedtime routine. Don’t Wake the Dragon is now available for pre-order! Be sure to print out the fun and free printable activity sheet, too!

Publisher’s Synopsis: Shhh! Be very quiet. The rascally dragon is finally asleep. But, when the page turned, the breeze blew the door shut with a BANG! Did it wake up the dragon? Create a fantastic bedtime experience by reading this interactive story featuring a reluctant-to-sleep dragon—a character that children will surely relate! Designed to be read aloud, parents will take pleasure in the playful text as much as children will enjoy hearing it. When the story finally comes to an end, and the gentle lullaby is repeated, the dragon – and your child! – are encouraged to drift off to sleep.
