Special #December #Podcast Series! Blondie Shares #TwelveDays of #MiddleGrade #ReadingRecommendations: How to Train Your Dragon by @CressidaCowell

Welcome back, my fellow creatives! I’ve always been thrilled to see how much my three little Bs love to read, but it makes my heart melt to hear my daughter Blondie say she wants to do a podcast with me to share her favorite books. When I said we could make a little “12 Days of Christmas” style series in December, Blondie whipped through her books and picked twelve for us to study. She even designed our banner with her favorite fantasy creature. x

So here we are! I’m blessed to have such amazing kindred spirits in my life, and I am so very blessed to have a daughter who loves storytelling as much as I do.

On the first day of Blondie’s Books, my daughter gave to me:

How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell

What does a reader experience in those opening pages, and what lessons can a writer take away in studying but a few paragraphs? Let’s find out!

If you do not see the audio player above, you can access the podcast here.

Why did you pick this book, Blondie?

I picked this book because I really enjoyed the series, (all 12 books) and I’ve always demanded that my mother should read it! So I thought it would be perfect for this podcast series. The only reason I read this book at first at all was because I LOVED the movies! Boy, was I surprised that the book was super different! Even if it is different from the movies, I strongly encourage you to read the rest of the book! (By strongly encourage I mean DEMAND) Cheers! -Blondie

Stay tuned for more storytellin’ and carol-singin’!

Read on, share on, and write on, my friends!
