My Father’s Dragon

This summer I wanted to focus on read alouds with Big Ladybug.  We just completed reading the Three Tales of My Father’s Dragon series by Ruth Stiles Gannett.  I would have to say we both enjoyed them.  The first book was our favorite, followed by the third book. 

It’s about a boy’s travels to rescue a dragon, the animals they encounter on their way, and their return journey back home.

I found a free lapbook on Homeschool Share that goes with the first book.  It was rather large, so I downsized it and we added a few of our own items.




Any suggestions on what we should read next?


  1. I adore your lapbook! We read two of these books, and the first one was our favorite too!
    What about the Patricia MacLachlan series beginning with Sarah, Plain and Tall? Or something by AA Milne?
    Can't wait to hear what you choose!

  2. We loved My Father's Dragon! Such sweet stories. I never thought of lapbooking it. Thanks for reminding me of that for our summer reads. :) Will you be starting Adv in the fall? When do you plan on starting? Blessings. Have a beautiful summer!
