Bibliographic Information: Yarrow, P.; Lipton, L. Puff, the Magic Dragon. (2007). New York: Sterling Publishing Co., Inc.

Brief Annotation: Puff the Magic Dragon, living in Honalee, is visited by Little Jackie Paper, and the two of them have many adventures together until Jackie grows up and loses his childish imagination.

Genre: Free Choice (picture)

Grade Level: K-2

Readers who will like this: Students who have heard the song before, students who value their imagination, students who like dragons.

Rating/Response: 4. An obvious classic.  Students who have heard the song and who haven’t will enjoy this story about Puff and Jackie, and it’s a story/rhyme that every kid should know.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: How many of you have heard the song?  What can you do with your imagination?
