    • I ll admit I didn t read it before checking it out, so I was a little surprised by the message.Lots of things to keep a 2.5yo interested in looking, especially identifying the other animals in silhouette, but the message was way over his head and the Santa thing was a little off.Interesting concept, though too advanced for the age group, I think and obviously overly simplified , but who knows what little nuggets might be retained Even if a child just remembers one thing it may help.


    • This book was not what I expected at all The author uses dragons and their imagined selfish tendencies to teach a lesson about taking care of the earth and using our resources wisely While I think that message is very important to teach children, it came across a little heavy and preachy to me, even with the rhyming scheme The illustrations are great, but overall this book just didn t work for me.


    • Adorable illustrations but this is way too heavy on the message for me The dragons go around polluting, using up resources, having no regard for their fellow creatures hum, sound like Gliori might be hinting at any other species here until all the other creatures finally disappear the dragons beg the other creatures to come back, promising they will be good and thoughtful So, the other animals return and offer ways the dragons can be kinder to their fellow creatures and to the earth The story en [...]


    • The trouble with Dragons is that there are many of them, they are greedy, they do not stop to think and most of all they are noisy and messy They have chopped down the forests and made big holes in the atmosphere their hot air melts all the snow and turns the ice to water Everything is now covered with water and sand, is it the end of the world Should everyone pack up and be gone Everyone, except the dragons, will they be all alone forever, how can they stop the mess they have made A wonderful s [...]


    • 3.5 stars Dragons are overpopulating the earth and having adverse effects on the environment Can this situation be turned around before it s too late This book has brilliant illustrations with lots to look at Although the message about looking after the planet is a good one, I thought it was handled in a heavy handed manner Rather than bringing it out in story, I felt it was a bit too preachy Still, it s a good way of showing the effect we can have on the environment and would be a good discussi [...]


    • This book is so preachy it makes The Lorax look like it was co authored by Exxon and the Cato Institute Seriously Such an obnoxious book, and I say that as a WWF supporting, Nature Conservancy gifting, tree hugging, bleeding heart hippie.


    • Very obvious political agenda here I get that the author is trying to teach, and I m all about taking care of our world But this book feels like a lecture If you want to teach kids something through literature I believe that your message has to be just subtle enough.


    • I hate books that are thinly veiled attempts to alter behavior There s nothing like a good brain washing This one is super lame.


    • Despite being reviewed by many as overly preachy , I thought that it was a very clever message delivered in an accessible way through the use of dragons what child doesn t love dragons and the rhymes it contains


    • The message about protecting the planet comes across a little heavy handed, although it is an important one The art is really good and dragons are fun so kids will have fun while they learn to help the planet.

    • True confession I only ordered The Trouble With Dragons by Debi Gliori from the library because I adore Debi Gliori s work I had no clue what it was about I don t like to research the books too much before I have the library put them on hold because, well, I like to be surprised We re living in a crazy time in this world raising kids right now, with the way that the climate and globe are changing is sometimes hard to figure out How do you explain animals going extinct, or why we have to throw ou [...]


    • The Trouble with Dragons is an fun picture book that tells the story of how the dragons destroyed the environment The dragons overpopulate, chop down forests, make holes in the atmosphere, and just create a generally unhappy place to live in The text throughout the story is written in rhyme, which is fun and helps the story to flow well, especially when reading it out loud to children The author also spaces and places the text in interesting ways that help the story For example, the line smalles [...]


    • If you re okay with presenting planet issues such as global warming and over population to pre schoolers, this would be a good choice I like the book for this younger crowd primarily for it s illustrations so I just turned pages and asked, what color are the dragons on this page not bothering to show every page, of course Find a simple line drawing of a dragon and run it off on colored paper Cut out your colored dragons and affix them to black 8 1 2 x 11 sheets of paper and put them in a stack T [...]


    • The Trouble with Dragons is a heartwarming story about taking care of our environment The author uses the dragons and their actions to represent humans and some of the harmful things that they do to the environment The story shows the dragons destroying the homes of wild animals and causing harm to our earth Finally, the dragons realize that they are hurting the animals, and they all begin to discuss ways to help the earth and its animals rather than to hurt it This book has a theme of preservin [...]


    • This book was blatant indoctrination at its best I picked it up because my daughter thought it looked cute, but it s all about how the dragons overpopulate their world, cut down all of the trees and melt the polor icecaps the picture of the other animals hanging on for dear life as it floods, begging the dragons to change their ways is priceless All you had to do is replace dragon with human and there you have my beef with the book I m all for taking care of this beautiful world that we have bee [...]


    • The trouble with dragons is a wonderful book that informs children about the environment through a fun way The main characters would have to be all the dragons and the setting is the entire world The point of view is from a narrator The story explains that dragons keep multiplying until they consume the whole world Because there is so many of them, the world starts to deteriorate So finally, after the world is almost underwater, the dragons decide that they will keep everything under control so [...]


    • I really liked the message of this book about what we can do to help keep our planet beautiful and healthyexcept for the very opening paragraph Whats the matter with dragons They make dragons, who keep making dragons, who make even dragons I m sorry, but who is the planet for if not for the people living there Teaching CHILDREN to not be wasteful and take care of the earth is a wonderful thingteaching them that it s bad or wrong to have CHILDRENumm what is the author thinking Why doesn t she [...]


    • This modern fantasy was about dragons who came back to earth and overpopulated and abused our planet This story was unique because it taught children about the enviornment, pollution, and what we can do to protect our beloved Earth Instead of simply talking about the enviornment, they introduced these lovable yet rascal like dragons This was a creative way to discuss the enviornment Children of all ages would enjoy the bright and colorful illustrations Dragons in general are very fascinating for [...]


    • Very entertaining I decided to read this book, because why not Dragons are awesome Daenerys Targaryen will agree to that P.S This book is not, in any way, affiliated with Game of Thrones I d like to think that the moral of the story is that we should take care of nature The dragons represent us humans for crossing the limits when we use the natural resources here on Earth In the end, there is still hope if you re determined enough.


    • grades k 4 The dragon population keeps growing, and each dragon needs a place to live, food to eat, and a place to put their trash Dragons like fire and chop down trees and spread fire so that everything gets hotter and ice starts to melt the other animals are sad Their habitats vanish, flooding from the melted ice or becoming hot and dry deserts The dragons learn that the world will become a lonely and uncolorful place if the only things that can live in it are dragons Not hard to tell who the [...]


    • I just couldn t get into this book When I realized the hidden agenda in the story, it just took away from a great fictional tale that I was hopeful for I admit, I picked this book up because of the cover ONLY and I do regret it HOWEVER, the pictures did save the book from a 1 star for me They were colorful and fun to look at My boys are 2 4 and could care less about a book talking about recycling at this point I m sure it would go along wonderfully with a teacher showing her class about going gr [...]


    • I like dragons, and the illustrations are great Unlike other commentators who like me didn t know what the book is about, I am glad I read it there are too many people in this world who don t understand the purpose of Nature, and that s why they should be educated early.Doesn t mean that children need to be brainwashed right now, to my daughter, it s just a book about cute colorful dragons, the real purpose will come later.No, really, finally a book with a meaning and not just meaningless bunnie [...]


    • 3.5 StarsIn a world where so many people seem determined to consume consume consume with reckless abandon, I can only think it s good to teach children the value of looking after our planet right from the very beginning all the better when it s done with awesome illustrations of dragons I do agree with a couple of reviewers though it would be nice to see some ideas included on how children could actually get involved, even if only in a note at the back I read this in a local children s centre 0 [...]


    • This is a nicely illustrated picture book about how the dragons live lives of excess and carelessness upon the earth until the earth is nearly destroyed In fear of losing everything, the dragons cry out for help and all the animals respond with tips on how to live in a way that is harmony with the earth The gist of this book is to reduce, reuse and recycle Good earth day read aloud for a library lesson.


    • I think this book could work well in the classroom to engage children in the topic of conservation and how we can change things to improve our world It is an interesting use of dragons to convey the message and I m sure there are better ways to send a message but I think overall the dragons work This book does send a powerful message and I think I would like to try it out in the classroom and see how the kids respond to it.
