Joan Harris’ personal experience as a parent of four sons, grandparent of thirteen grandchildren, and work as a marriage and family therapist enable her to talk about a sensitive issue that some children face today. Discussion questions at the end of the book facilitate interaction between child and parent or educator.

A Princess, A Prince and a Dragon Go to Camp

A Princess, A Prince and a Dragon Go to CampThe Royal Dragon Billy Bob had no idea what a summer camp was when the princess suggested he should go during summer vacation. He was excited and fearful at the same time. When he discovered that three close friends would be his tent mates, he was very happy, and even more so when he saw Prince Arthur Jim Ray was the camp leader.

During the day he seemed happy as he dealt with new adventures, even the adventure where he has to overcome his greatest fear. This is a very charming story all children will love. They will probably be singing the little song the campers sang at the end as they remember what Billy Bob did.
