From Publishers Weekly

The comfort and security that preschoolers find in their daily routine is at the heart of Hunter's (It's a Terrible Age to Be) and Lambert's (Simon Says) sweet-natured story. A dragon family's day begins with a mother and father getting a wake-up call from their green-scaled, winged tyke, "Because that's what Little Ones do!" And so the day unfolds with dressing, eating and washing, with parents rushing and Little One dawdling. Then it's off to "fun playing all day long," at dragon day care, which ends when "families come to pick [children] up," as Hunter reassures her audience, "Because that's what families do!" The day draws to a close with plenty of postdinner quality time from Mommy and Daddy, a song from Little One and a snuggle. Lambert's sherbet-toned, softly textured watercolors exude warmth through details in the parent-child interactions; alphabet blocks, a wooden train and the toddler's ever-present teddy bear companion dot each child-centric landscape. Perhaps most important for this audience, the dragon parents exude bottomless reserves of patience, orderliness and affection. Ages 2-5.

From School Library Journal

reS-The dragon family consists of a mother, a father, and a Little One. The story is told through the course of one very busy, very typical day. From wake up to bedtime, through school and play, youngsters follow the preschooler's activities. This is a good book for working families as it shows the important role that each member has. The bright, colorful pictures show the little green dragon jumping on his parents' bed to wake them up, washing and dressing, and entering the cluttered, cozy classroom, and two exhausted dragons after a full day and round of play before bedtime. With its short, rhyming text and large, clear illustrations, this will be useful in preschool programs.

Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful story of what little ones do - I especially enjoyed the fact that the little dragon goes to daycare and that the family ALWAYS picks him up because that's what families do. The first time I read the book, I thought it was written about our family and our Little One.
A definate for your home library if you have a preschooler.
