    A little dragon tells the reader how brave he is. He even roars for us. Then he becomes scaredof his own roar. Throughout the rest of the story he keeps thinking he hears things, scary things. He goes around the forest asking everyone if they heard the noise. He tells them to huddle close and he'll protect them. Then all the animals roar together to scare away this "monster." Good story for preschool aged children. Kirk's work here is easily identifiable as his. It is bright, clear, and large an [...]

    When I heard about this cute book for young readers I knew I had to have it. And then I was lucky enough to get a copy from Macmillan Kids. <3 And it is so pretty. The book is coming out in May, and I think you all need to check it out. It is adorable.I'm giving it a four star, because I had a few issues with how short it is. While it is so cute, and I love the illustrations, I wish the book was longer. Even just a few more pages with more amazing pictures of that adorable dragon. But even th [...]

    This is a picture book ideal for children ages 2-6. It tells the story of a dragon who acts all big and powerful but when he lets out his first roar gets scared by it and thinks his roar is the roar of some terrible monster. He then has all the other animals of the forest join him in roaring together to scare away the "monster". The illustrations in this book are bright and colorful. The reader meets the dragon and illustrations show the words exactly. When the dragon roars for the first time th [...]

    David Kirk? YES! Dragon? YES! Those thoughts were why I chose to review this book. We’ve been huge David Kirk fans since our oldest (11 next month) was born. She LOVED Miss Spider. It started with the book, and extended to the show. She loved them both. I’ve always been drawn to David Kirk’s books as a result. Well, that and the fact that I enjoyed reading them to her — and enjoyed the always-gorgeous illustrations.Oh So Brave Dragon does not disappoint. The illustrations are just as col [...]

    Kirk, David (2014). Oh So Brave Dragon, New York: Feiwel and Friends.Picture Book SoakWonderful story about a dragon who roars so loud he scares himself, thinking a monster is near. Together with the help of his friends, he finds the courage to roar again to scare away the "monster." I absolutely loved the illustrations in this book! The pictures were so graphic with the bold, vibrant colors. With the simplicity of the words and the attention getting colors, this book would be perfect in a K-1 c [...]

    Cute if over-saturated pictures. The titular dragon frightens all of his forest friends, scares himself with his own echo (I assume his echo, it's never explained), then runs to his forest friends for comfort. The most interesting character by far is likely the rather angry bird (not Angry Bird(TM)). This poor bird is blown about by the dragon's mighty breath, and ignored when he tries to explain the noise to the dragon. By the end, he clearly has a terrible headache and has given up trying to u [...]

    Short and sweet but packed with a big message, Oh So Brave Dragon is sure to be a hit with the little ones. A simple tale of a Dragon who scares himself with his own roaris book teaches the basics about fear, overcoming that fear and the power of friendship. Kirk's illustrations are strong and vivid and paint a great picture of this adorably cute "monster", his home and all of his woodland friends. I couldn't help smiling as I flipped the pages to see what awaited me:)Oh So Brave Dragon is a win [...]

Together, they just might be able to face their fears of the unknown. This picture book is perfect for sharing with youngsters as a gentle reminder that everyone, even the bravest of us all, has something that frightens them, and there is safety--and courage--in being with friends during challenging times.

  • Jeff Harris

    A dragon is very proud of his bravery and his fearsome roar -- but when he roars extremely loudly, he thinks he hears something else an even more fearsome and horrible monster lurking in the forest. He tries to roar again to scare it away, but becomes even more frightening, which eventually leads him to turn to his friends for help. It's a simple story that point to the value of turning to others for strength and courage when facing your fears, and it's definitely a cute read for young children. [...]

    2.75The cover of this book had so much promise for a fun book. Then I read it and well, the pictures are great and the express on the bears/wolverines (we are debating what they are are) are fearfulwhich they should be! Why is a Dragon in the forest with Normal animals? I liked the pictures! Beyond that I can't Rave!

  • Ms.Gaye

    This 2nd title in the Oh So Tiny World series features the red dragon seen in Kirk’s earlier Oh So Tiny Bunny. Although the brave little dragon's tail is spiky, his teeth are pointy, and his claws are sharp, he is so very cute. The adorable and energetic characters, along with themes of fear, bravery, and friendship, will make this a popular title with preschoolers.

  • Barbara

    Who does like to cut loose with their friends? And what child isn't surprise by how loud or how strong they can the first time they try something? That is what I love about Brave Dragon. He scares himself with his roar and instead of crying, he gathers up his friends and they roar until they are brave, brave, brave. This will be a great addition to the story time shelf.

  • Victoria

    Story about a dragon.Interactive. Children can roar along.Detailed artwork. One to two sentences a page.Large font.Friendship.Would I use this for story time?Preschoolers, yes because it's interactive.

  • Ashley

    Beautifully illustrated and full of subtle plot devices which will pull young readers in and wish they could tell the Dragon what is really going on. A fun choice for a mythical creatures storytime.

  • Crystal

    Cute but the whole unreliable narrator concept was a bit hard for some of the kids to understand. They did really like getting the chance to roar with the dragon and the illustrations are nice and colorful for a large crowd.

  • Great Books

    When Dragon scares himself with a fearsome roar, he turns to his forest friends to help him be brave. Together they gather the courage to conquer their fears. The rich brilliant colors in the illustrations bring the adorable characters to life. (Reviewer #7)

  • Sharon Lawler

    When Dragon hears a "roar" he can't identify, he seeks safety in the company of his fellow forest animal friends. Oil on paper illustrations and a focused story line make this a valuable addition to a "childhood fears" story time.

  • Debbie

    There's nothing really wrong with this book--it's cute, and the illustrations are cute, and it would probably make a fine storytime read--but it's just not that interesting. Among some other Building Block Award nominees, this one kinda falls flat.

  • Sandra Guerfi

    ROAR!!!!! When Brave Dragon scares himself, he asks his friends to help identify the unknown monster hiding in the woods. Can Dragon and the rest of the gang scare away the monster. Roar by roar they can.

  • Vicki

    A perfect book for a read aloud and audience participation. ROAR! Very colorful and expressive illustrations.

  • Teresa

    Adorable for a young child, colors bright and attracting

  • Meredith

    Adorable!

  • Colette

    Oh so brave, not really! But little kids will love this during story time on a lap or in a group. Very interactive, bright, and of so fun. Read about a little dragon who can't believe his own roar!
