Fraydo the Dragon: A Very Big Problem! is a new picture book by San Francisco author Courtney Spain Aragon. This popular, local favorite has already brought serious giggles and chuckles to children of all ages—from silly to super silly. After all, kids have lots of fun trying to figure out why big, lovable and goofy Fraydo the Dragon thinks he is a DOG!!
Fraydo the Dragon: A Very Big Problem! goes beyond the one picture book. It’s an imaginary world that is both rich in illustration and in character that leaves the curious reader asking questions long after the last page is read.
To support these curious readers, parents can download a post reading discussion guide that aims to invoke critical thinking skills around these important topics: understanding friendships & differences, developing empathy, and building upon one’s own self-awareness to problem solve. And kids, they can follow the characters through the Fraydo the Dragon Club. In the club, kids can:
* Be part of Fraydo’s Pen Pal Program—write or draw a picture and send it to any character in the story. The characters will write back!
* Take part in exciting Fraydo the Dragon S.T.E.M Project Challenges and win a special Certificate of Awesomeness along the way!
* Access Fraydo the Dragon's private Workshop Blog—where Fraydo the Dragon will keep you up to date on all the happenings within the Kingdom of Aragon.
