Book Overview

The classic fantasy trilogy of Elmer Elevator and the flying baby dragon has delighted children and their parents for generations. Now, on the occasion of their fiftieth anniversary, Random House is proud to bring the three timeless tales together in one beautiful commemorative edition, complete with the original delightful illustrations. A Newbery Honor Book and an ALA Notable Book, My Father's Dragon is followed by Elmer and the Dragon (rich, humorous, and thoroughly satisfying*) and The Dragons of Blueland (ingenious and plausible, the fantasy well-sustained*). Each story stands alone, but read in succession, they are an unforgettable experience.*Library Journal, starred review

   Great first chapter book for younger kids (listening)
He will sit for longer books, and we thought he might be ready for a chapter book, we added. This book is perfect. It was just the right level for him to listen and totally give his imagination a workout, Mr. Dhaliwal said. We finished it in about a week, said Dr. Goin. We have tried everything we can think of, but all the books have not gone over as well. We will probably read it again.
   Full of Memories
Even with time, I cannot help but get teary thinking of these stories. I cannot possibly put into words all of the wonderful memories I have of this book. When my husband and I found out that we were expecting our first child, I ordered this book, packed it up for my father and hid the test results under the book in the wrapped box.
Note that this only gives you audio for the second book, not the third. My kids love My Father's Dragon so it seemed very cost-effective to purchase this kindle edition for $10 and add the $4 whispersync audio to get all three books on audio! It's disappointing to find that the audio is not for the entire series of three books. If you are purchasing only to read, I'm sure you will enjoy the rest of the book. This is a great series, said Dr. Brian Stokes Mitchell, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
   A compilation of the three books
I already have the three books, but I wanted to get a set for my son's school. I ordered this one but it was short. The third book is a mere four pages. It did not say whether the book was abridged or not. But on one of the first pages it says A Compilation, which I thought I meant put together, but may also mean abbreviated. I sent it to school because I already paid for it.
   Great series!
My 5 year old loved it and my 2 year old lay still while I read it. There's just not much more that I could ask for, lol. The second part was even more engrossing, and I wish the series had ended a few years ago. The 5 year old was still wanting more, and we couldn't read them all.
   Cute and engaging.
Just finished this with my kids, Tunick said. It kept her attention for the whole time. I caught her reading ahead of time a few times. The girls left the meeting feeling like they had done everything they could to get what they wanted. Pictures are black and white which I thought maybe the kids wouldn't like, but they never said anything about it and at the end when you met the dragons family they were able to pick out which dragon was being talked about by the shades of grey.
   Abused child runs away and has boring conversations with a cat
I was 5 years old. I don't need to slog through that crap. It was also very boring, Bruno said. It's just that I don't know why people like this. There are many, many more great books out there.
   Great book a must read¡!!!!!!
My son absolutely loves the book. In the second part of the trilogy, readers must have seen the "Book" by the third. We have read the next two, too. It's great to see people actually care about the planet. It's great to be back home, said Blair.
   Our favorite first chapter book
It is fantastic as an early chapter book as your kid becomes ready for a longer read that still includes some pictures.
   A wonderful book to read aloud with young children
It was my first attempt at reading a chapter book with my son. As much as I love the picture books, I really wanted something that could be episodic and we could look forward to bedtime each night, she said. We read several chapters each night, and he sat mostly transfixed throughout. Now that we're done with it, I'm struggling to find any other chapter book that is so delightfully written with such wonderful adventures.
