Praise for Rise of the Earth Dragon (Dragon Masters #1):
"In this first of the Dragon Masters series, vocabularly is accessible; sentences, paragraphs, and chapters are short; and dialogue moves the story along rapidly. Black-and-white sketch-type drawings add depth to the story and feelings to the characters (both children and dragons). Emergent readers will find happy success here." -- Booklist
"The first of a new series of early chapter books, this entry is sure to attract fans. Brief chapters, large print, lots of action, attractive illustrations in every spread including a maplike panorama, an enviable protagonist -- who wouldn't want to be a Dragon Master? -- all combine to make an entertaining read. With plenty left to be resolved, the next entry will be eagerly sought after." - Kirkus Reviews
"Each page features wonderfully detailed pencil illustrations which help to support the text." -- Library Media Connection
Praise for BRANCHES books:
"These books should be considered for larger libraries wanting to enhance their easy-reader collections." -- School Library Journal
"A nice stepping stone to more advanced chapter books." -- Booklist

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Generally, my son does not like anything scary or anything with “bad guys.” This book has one “scary” part where the main character had a bad dream. There is also another part toward the end that made him a little nervous, but he was hooked on the story at that point. There were no “bad guys.”
This book is great for 1-2 grade readers to read aloud or to themselves. It is also a good book to read to children who are not quite ready to read on their own yet. My almost five year old loved listening to the story. The chapters are short, about 6 pages long and have pictures.

They LOVE all the characters/dragons in the books and love guessing what each person can do and what powers the dragons have.
Whenever possible we use the Kindle edition and broadcast it to our TV via our Amazon Firebox (via wireless projection) so that everyone can see the text and the pictures. Unfortunately not all the books are available for Amazon Kindle, so some books we had to buy as hard paper and we are running out of space in our bookshelves as we have sooo many books, so we prefer electronic copies. Electronic copies also allow us to share it onto their Amazon Fire tablets for kids.
Again, LOVED by all of our kids and we have different ages and grasp of the world. Unfortuantely we have read ALL the books available and now have to wait until March 2021 until the next book comes out.
