What to Read Wednesday: Dragon Books for Kids

The Best Dragon Books for Kids

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

Nothing feeds the imagination like a good dragon story. Whether beastly or kind-hearted, dragons are fascinating characters in many of our favorite stories. My kids were on pins and needles when I read them The Hobbit, as Bilbo and his band of dwarves set out to defeat Smaug. And when Harry faced the Hungarian Horntail in The Goblet of Fire, we were all on the edge of our seats until we knew whether Harry was safe. My high schooler loved Beowulf when we studied it last year and even attended a Beowulf camp during the summer. From a young age, my boys have enjoyed dragon stories, and the first two on our list below are equally at the top of our all time favorite children’s books. If you’ve never read them, you are in for such a treat when you do. Be sure to share them with a child in your life by reading them aloud, and get swept away in the magic of dragons!

    Love me a good dragon book!And when those tiny dragon riders get old enough to read on their own, there’s the Inheritance series by Christopher Paolini featuring Sapphira, the beautiful blue dragon!

      I will have to check that out for my son. Thank you for the recommendation, Michele!

    Ahhh so many fun picks, I love dragons! 🙂 That inheritance series the earlier commenter mentioned were written by a homeschooled teenager, which is a fun bit of trivia to add to the mix. 😉

      Oh, that’s really neat, Sarah! Now I will have to check it out for sure. Thanks for letting us know! Have a wonderful week!

    Such cute choices. One of my favorite kid’s movie is “How to train your dragon”. I’m sure the little ones will love these books.

      That’s such a fun movie, Cee Lee. I love it, too! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    My kids LOVE dragon books. In fact I wrote a post about our 10 favorite dragon books this past summer. (If you’d like you can read it here: http://www.ourunschoolingjourney.com/2016/06/our-favorite-books-about-dragons.html)

    I love that pretty much all of your books are ones we haven’t read!

      That’s great, Joanne! Thank you for sharing your blog post link–I’m heading over to check it out!
