Dragons have long been a staple fare of our imagination. They tickle our fancy with the might they wield. However, if you believe that dragons have no problems, think again. In Sparky Lost Her Flame, children's author Regina McDonald creates a playful tale about a dragon who loses her fire-breathing ability at a time when she needs it for her activities at Dragon Flame Elementary School. Why she lost her ability to breathe flame is a plot for a children's book that will teach the value of personal hygiene and the importance of listening to our parents. McDonald lends artistic skill to her story with her sharp, solid artwork that occupies most of the pages. The huge texts are ideal for beginner readers.
We all know that dragons breathe fire, and the question is, how would one of them survive in a world of dragons that relish using their fire-breathing skills? Sparky is but a mere child dragon who must figure out why she lost her "spark." She epitomizes that smart-alecky attitude that young girls her age are predisposed to having, and it gets them into a lot of trouble. At the end of the day, it is mom or dad who saves them. Sparky Lost Her Flame is cute and entertaining, a sweet tale of a little anthropomorphic dragon that is just right as a short read for a bedtime story. True to its title, this storybook will ignite a spark for kids who are finicky or lazy when it comes to brushing their teeth.
