Description

Fun and safety go hand in hand as a little girl and a dragon spend a hot summer day at the beach. The two friends build castles in the sand, splash and swim, and race a boatload of pirates to a hidden treasure. As they play, the girl teaches her irrepressible friend to be water smart.

The winning combination of adventure and safety information --- including The Dragon's Water Safety Rhyme and the checklist of rules at the end of the book --- provide the perfect starting point for safety discussions.

Editorial Reviews

This book is an ideal tool for teaching water safety basics to early elementary children and preschoolers. At home on public and elementary school library shelves, it should even find its way into aquatic centre collections for instructional use.

— Quill and Quire

Rhyming couplets deliver safety lessons with a playful tone. Bright with fine lines of color, the pencil-crayon artwork has a cartoon look and plenty of entertaining details.
