The beauty behind this movie however, was not the engaging plot line or the dynamic animating. To my kids it was more than a way to kill time. It inspired them. We had several mornings of brainstorming dragon names, which lead to the creation of our own dragon guidebooks. Sometimes when my kids get on a kick like this we'll scour the internet and the public library looking for good resources related to the hot topic at hand. This time we didn't, but that doesn't mean we won't the next time the dragon buzz hits our house...
Here are some of my favorites from their guidebook. Alex was the artist, the girls collaborated on the names and color schemes for each dragon.
(The "Arrow Head")
(The "Troll Master" - complete with little villagers bombarding it with cannonballs)
(The "Tree Creeper")
