First Editorial Has Arrived!

"Fly High, Baby Dragon" has received its first editorial review, and it couldn't be any more exiciting. I was not expecting a 5-Star review on my very first picture book, but I am very grateful. I believe strongly in the ability of this book to foster positive conversations with children, and I am glad that the reviewer agrees.
