Are you a school or public librarian looking for a wonderful book to share with children for story time? The Library Dragon is a fun story to share about a dragon who is hired to take care of / guard the books in the library. The dragon eventually comes to the realization that the library belongs to the children and the children should be allowed to use the books. Once the dragon figures this out, her scales fall off and a wonderful children's librarian appears.
