WARREN Amp; DRAGON'SFRIENDS, Chapter Book About A Modernday CALVIN AND HOBBESesque Tale Involving A Dreamy Boy, His Smartypants Twin Sister, And His Vain Dragon Companion Very cute. 5 yo nephew loved it! This was a great early reader book with accessible layout, font and illustrations to get kids talking. I read one or two chapters a night with two of my sons. This is a great book for kids to read if there is a new student joining the class or if a student is moving. It lends itself to socialemotional learning experiences. And Dragon is quite a character — kind of like Warren’s id that must be kept in check at all times! Overall, a fun read that invites conversation. My 8year old son really enjoyed being introduced to Warren and Dragon, while eating lots of marshmallows of course. Bernstein's humor and Malbrough's illustrations make this a fun read for chapterbookhungry kids. The author captures the secret thoughts behind some of the perplexing behavior of singledigitage kidswhile the pictures show how incredibly vivid their imaginations can be. The first of four books in a seriesso look out for more coming soon! If you love marshmallows the book will have a special place in your heart. Kidliterati (#partner)I received a copy from the author Ariel Bernstein (and Puffin Books) in exchange for my honest review.
All opinions my own.
After accepting a challenge (from his sister) to make the most new friends at their new school, Warren discovers that there is way more to making friends than he first anticipated.
Warren's interactions with Dragon are quite entertaining especially since Dragon had a quite high opinion of himself. They got each other’s back and make a great pair. I wish I had an insight into how they first met.
I loved how the story flowed and how it put you right there inside Warren's mind with the timely one line monologues. Dragon's shenanigans and his reasoning got my daughter to chuckle often while we read the book.
My husband pointed out that Warren and Dragon has a Calvin and Hobbes vibe and I totally agree with him. This is an excellent read aloud for parents and their little ones. Mrs. Sue and her after school Shining Stars rate this book with ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Aaron: “I gave this book five stars because Dragon is funny and Warren, Dragon, Ellie, and Michael all want to be famous.” Chase: “I gave this 5 ⭐️s because it is funny and I want to buy more Warren books.” Peter: “It’s interesting and written by a good author.” I was surprised when I found this book for a young reader I know. I read it to her and it was fun. But the marshmalloweating stuffed dragon that Warren carries around in his backpack is annoying. He helps Warren make new friends in his new school. Even Warren's twin, Ellie, worries until Warren makes new friends in their new home and new school. Warren & Dragon: 100 Friends by Ariel Bernstein, 79 pages. CHAPTER BOOK.

Warren and his family are moving to a new house and Warren and his twin sister, Ellie, will start second grade in a new school. Ellie is confident she can make new friends, but Warren is a bit unsure. Warren already has a best friendDragon. Dragon appears stuffed to some, but is very real to Warren. Ellie does indeed make friends easily, and although it is not as easy for Warren, he does find some great friends.
I read this aloud to my 1st and 3rd grader and they both enjoyed the story. Warren is likable and relatable, a nice kid that is honest about his weaknesses. There is some humor that is not lost on young readers and it is fun for them to imagine what Dragon is like for Warren opposed to other characters. The neighbor friend that Warren makes is a character of color that has two moms, adding a nice touch of diversity to the cast of characters.

https://kissthebookjr.blogspot.com/20... My early chapter book readers are going to love Warren & Dragon's 100 Friends. They will relate to Warren and the problems he encounters, like being a new student or having a sibling rivalry. Dragon makes me laugh. He is wonderfully silly! Looking forward to the sequel.
