Review: Lights Out, Little Dragon!

Little dragon is so tired, but he won’t go to sleep. What can I do?

Our little protagonist has a problem, and she needs your help to solve it. Trace a path to help dragon escape from rogue leaping sheep. 

Help answer little dragon’s many questions about the world. Give little dragon a scratch and find his missing dinosaur toy, so he can finally get to sleep.

Lights Out, Little Dragon! is an interactive and audience-engaging picture book kids will adore. You, the reader, are invited to help put little dragon to bed, but it won’t be easy. There’s lots you’ll need to do to get little dragon to settle and finally close his eyes.

A fun exploration of the bedtime struggles parents battle nightly, this delightful picture book gives kids the tucking-in duty. Kids will love being part of the story and getting involved as you turn each page. It’s a wonderful way to explore a book and different from most.

Rae Tan’s illustrations are soft and floaty, perfectly matched to this nighttime tale. With his green body and yellow wings, little dragon is the best friend every kid will want to have.

A sweet bedtime book for kids to read with family that does double time as an uber engaging book for large groups.
