Cedric and the Dragon

The unlikely hero in this story is young Prince Cedric, who was slow to walk, has a tough time with reading and math, and fails miserably at dragon-slaying school. But with kindness and his love of hugs, Cedric saves the kingdom.

This cheerful picture book reminds us there is more than one way to solve a problem and reinforces the idea that everyone has something special to offer. A gentle message about kindness with delightful watercolors and a lovable dragon.

  • Reminds us that everyone has special talents and skills, even if they are sometimes hidden.
  • Gentle language and plot promote nonviolence as a way to solve conflict.
  • Great picture book to prompt discussion among preschoolers and early elementary aged children about conflict, bullying, inclusion, and making choices based on what you know is right.
  • Encourages young children to act with compassion toward others.
