As we dive into the diverse and inclusive books from Barefoot Books I fall more and more in love. As we planned out our family picnic day I took a bit of time to see what books would be a good fit from our collection. Herb the Vegetarian Dragon was just perfect for the mix.
Herb the Vegetarian Dragon
Herb the Vegetarian Dragon is a delightful story of a dragon that is a bit different than other dragons. He sticks to his beliefs even when the going gets tough. While other dragons are eating princesses Herb is a peace loving vegetarian who spends his time working in his garden with his human friend who later races to his rescue. Herb changes the fate of all dragons as he convinces the king everyone can live in peace.
This is a great story for teaching children that though someone may look like someone that is doing bad that does not mean they are bad as well. This is a big deal in today’s world as racism is running rampant and no one is exempt. This is a great book to add to your lessons to teach your kids about diversity.
