Summary: (from my library catalog) Princess Alice has lost her very precious blankie and she must find it! But her brother doesn’t have it and neither does the giant or the witch. Finally Alice finds her special snuggly in the arms of a sleepy dragon, but he looks so sad when she takes it back that she knows she must find him something just as cozy, soft and warm to cuddle. But what could that be.

I like this book because: it is a fun read-aloud, in rhyme, with adorable illustrations including many details to linger on (and go back to linger on!). The cumulative story style makes a surprising turn with twists we can all identify with. I guarantee readers will beg to read it again!

Resources/activities: list things some of us need to help us sleep, maybe share in Show-and-Tell fashion; ask what object in your possession might you have offered to the dragon; act the whole story out in a play!
