Andy began his career in illustration in 2003, after spending fifteen years working as a graphic designer in the computer games industry. He spends his non-writing time thinking about writing and going to as many live music shows as he can. Writing: Year 4 : Pupils should be taught to organise paragraphs around a theme and use simple organisational devices in writing. Edward Eaves is an up-and-coming young illustrator with a growing reputation and several successful children's books under his belt. With a focus on the Chinese New Year it gives background information to young children about how other cultures celebrate a holiday.

With bonus educational content and Mandarin translations in the back to enhance your reading experience, How to Catch a Dragon is the perfect dragon book for kids ages 3-8!

I really enjoyed this one in particular because it talks about the Chinese New Year, as well as the Chinese culture in general. There are How to Catch books and How to Draw books, including a BRAND NEW Draw Underwater Animals Book! The art is bright and colorful, and there's a good cadence to the words that would work fabulously for a storytime session. The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged.

He is in a series of stories by Hart in which he travels through various times and has wonderfully imaginative experiences. There are also symbols on the banners throughout the story and if you don't know any Mandarin at all, you don't get to know what it says, which is a little disappointing for someone like me who is fascinated by languages. It's great to do that in a book set in America, but if this was meant to teach us a bit about China, it's not quite the melting pot America is. How to Catch a Dragon is everything you love about the How to Catch series, now appealing to a wider audience! Despite a series of cleverly planned traps, the children never manage to catch the dragon they were hunting.

I was a bit confused by all the nationalities of kids in town as it made it hard to figure out where this story was suppose to be taking place.

After hearing Mom wish for a dragon to bring health and fortune for the new year, a boy (presumably Chinese) and several friends (of varying racial presentations) discover a dragon lurking about town. My daughter loves these "How to Catch a…" books, but I find it rather annoying based on the titles that one never actually catches these creatures.I was given an advance copy through NetGalley in a document form and did have some issues viewing the text but the overall effect of the story was very enjoyable, I know that there is a Mandarin translation in the back of the book but had a hard time navigating through this section. We didn't know that there were other books in the series until we came across what I believed to be a contextual clue regarding tacos. Are we to believe that there are a bunch of white, black, and Latinx kids living in a traditional country village in China that appears to have a 19th-century level of technology? So when the kid throws a taco party for the dragons, it seems a weak device that the clearly labeled “totally mild” salsa comes with spicy jalapenos in the fine print, prompting the dragons to burn down the house, resulting in a barn-raising at which more tacos are served.
