The trouble with dragons is . . . they're ruining the planet They're chopping down trees to make way for their houses, fishing out the oceans, eating and drinking everything in sight. It's only a matter of time before the seas rise and the deserts expand, and once that happens, all the animals pack up and leave-except for the dragons, who are left feeling awfully sorry for themselves. Then one brave voice pipes up with an idea, and it's not long before the dragons are getting plenty of advice on what they can do to stop hurting the earth and restore their home. This gentle story is the perfect way to help promote environmental awareness in the youngest of listeners.
