Max's Dragon Shirt

One of the stories that the children are enjoying this week is "Max's Dragon Shirt." Take a few minutes and ask your child about Max and Ruby's adventure. See if the are able to tell you what happens at the beginning, middle and end of this story. I was very impressed by how much the children were able to recall and share about this book.

Here is a review of the book: ( to help you ask questions)

Max wants nothing but a dragon shirt and Ruby is insisting on buying him a much-needed pair of pants, per

the instructions of their mother. Max does not give up on his beloved dragon shirt and reminds Ruby every chance he gets. Ruby gets sidetracked in the store trying on dresses and Max manages to wander in the store after dozing off and not finding Ruby in the dressing room. Max finds his coveted dragon shirt, puts it on and is "found" by two policemen in the store. Well, now the dragon shirt is covered with yummy ice cream and Ruby has no choice but to purchase the shirt for Max!
