I've got mixed feelings on this one. My kids loved the pictures, and were excited by a story about a dragon. Still, Weepy's dad comes off as very mean and Weepy leaves home. While he ends off finding happiness, my young kids were troubled by the angry dad and a young dragon never seeing his family again. The pictures were great, but I was reading this on a Kindle and the pictures and text weren't on the same page. My kids kept wanting to skip to the picture before I finished reading the text.

This book shows kids you cant always judge a book or rather
a dragon by its cover. It also shows how cruel words can harm even a dragon whose only fault is being good and kind. Weepy is determined to try and be a dragon like the rest but in the end Weepy wins and is shown he can be liked for who he is and just the way he is.

"Get away from me!" Weepy's father yelled. "You'll never be like a dragon. You're a coward!" --- And I'll note that it comes out of nowhere on a page all by itself...

I'm sorry to disappoint you folks that have given this book 5 stars, but I must advise parents to read this book before either reading it to their children or giving it to a child to read. The overall story is entertaining and could be considered uplifting if it were not for the brief and cruel interaction between Weepy and his father. If it weren't for that, the other situations would all create opportunities for dialog with children and allow for healthy and constructive lessons.

Sure life can be tough, and I don't believe that shielding children from all of life's pain is advisable, or even possible, but I do believe that unless the text is purpose written for dealing with special circumstances (and by that I mean something written by a child psychologist for the specific purpose of dealing with childhood trauma), no benefit can come from reading that sort of scenario to a child. The young mind isn't going to be uplifted or inspired by a story that features the protagonist being cast out by a parent in such a hurtful and abrupt manner. The most important "lesson" the young mind is going to retain is the "reality" that a failure on their part might end with the total withdrawal of love, and ostracism, by their parent(s). That is most certainly not a scenario or conversation that I would willingly introduce my children to.

A really fun way about a dragon who is different and sensitive and who learns how to accept himself. The book is well written and entertaining and my daughter loves it. The message it conveys is positive all the way and it is really fun to read. I would highly recommend this one.

My three-year-old daughter LOVES this book. A cute story with a simple, but important moral (that it's okay to be different from your peers). The running commentary she gives in between pages is also incredibly cute and has made this one of my favorite books to read to her.

This book deserves the 5-star rating because it is so cute. There was nothing to dislike about this delightful tale. I would reccommend it to anyone that enjoys a cute story to share with children or grandchildren. The "little ones" really enjoyed it. So did I.

There are those moments in life when you get to the point that there is enough drama going around you. A change in perspective is wanted, more needed, so you look back to a childhood moment. You could also be looking to relive a bit of your youth and pick up a book meant for children. This is the case of the book, Weepy the Dragon, by author J J Hebert.

Weepy the Dragon like many children’s book is not long but does provide the reader a great reading experience to share with a child. The book has beautiful illustrations thanks to the great work done by Ed Jones. The illustrations capture the moments in the book masterfully and provide a great visual to go with the story.

The books opening helps to introduce the reader to a story that took place long before the digital age. A period before children, and adults, get their scares from movies and the internet. Instead the book is set in a world where dragons are the scare creatures. Their long scaly bodies, large teeth and fire breathing are mentioned in this opening. Along with the mention of the dangers there is an exception to the fule and that dragon is Weepy.

The story is told in such a manner that it is not hard for a child, and adults, to find the story interesting. It tells how Weepy is different from the rest of the dragons and must do what he can to fit into this world. The illustrations that accompany the passages are well done and tell the story almost by themselves. They allow for a child’s imagination to take the words read and see them in pictures to engage them more.

Books like Weepy the Dragon are what I consider the type of book that will help start a child on their way to love reading. The story is told thoughtful enough it will engage a child, and the illstrations add to that build. As I believe it is important to encourage reading early this is a book that will hopefully start a young reader to want to read.
