    One thought on “Eric Carle's Dragons, Dragons”

    1. I read this one in a small library called Pustakalana few days ago when I went to Bandung.This is actually quite interesting. It kinda introduces a lot of magical creatures to children, with illustration of course. The descriptions itself were made from poetry/song (I'm not really sure, but some names written there after the description).Though, I don't really like the illustration. It's good, but not my favorite. Still, it's cute and interesting. I'm more concerned to the sub-title: & other [...]

    2. This collection introduces young readers to a variety of mythological creatures from different traditions: dragons, centaurs, hippogriffs, phoenixes, etc. It is illustrated by Eric Carle and consists of poems from a variety of famous poets such as Rainer Maria Rilke and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Because the poems are older and therefore occasionally more to understand without context, this book could be difficult for younger readers. What is truly remarkable about this collection is Carle’s [...]

    3. Mythological beasts with Eric Carle’s very-hungry-caterpillar art? Yes! This was a gorgeous book. With short little poems about each beast by different authors - with at least one going back to BCE.

    4. in-progressGenre: poetryAge group: kindergarten +Intended audience: ages 5-9Summary: Dragons Dragons is a compilation of poems and poetry excerpts by 29 poets including Rainer Maria Rilke, William Blake, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, William Shakespeare, among others. Each poem addresses one of 30 different creatures, such as a Sphinx, Griffen, Chimera, Pegasus, Phoenix, Unicorn, Dragon, etc. The center poem is a dual fold-out with a 4-line Chinese Mother Goose rhyme titled Chinese Dragon on the o [...]

    5. ***Actual Star Rating: 3.75*** This was an interesting compilation of various verses and/or descriptions not only of fantastical creatures but also of a handful of deities from various religions around the world. Some entries could be considered poetry while others were just a bit of a snippet from whatever source had been looked to for inclusion in the book. There were a few entries that could have been considered wrong whether it was the name given for a specific creature or even just the pict [...]

    6. My son takes after his father. He is a re-reader, far more than I am. His current re-read obsession is Dragons, Dragons edited and illustrated by Eric Carle. It's a library book from his elementary school and his name is the only name in it for the last three check-outs. I can see why he loves it, it's a fantastic bestiary with quotes from a number of authors and well known book and each mythical beast is illustrated in Eric Carle's unique style.The book has mythical beasts from around the world [...]

    7. I am reviewing this book as a poetry book. It is a compilation of poems from several authors about very strange and imaginary creatures. Eric Carle illustrated the imaginary creatures using the descriptions from the poems. This book is intended for fourth and fifth grade students. The poems are a bit more complex for younger students. This book can be applied to several lessons in the classroom. Geography is a great way to implement this book. Most of the creatures are from certain parts of the [...]

    8. Eric Carle is expanding the horizons of student’s imaginations in his book “Dragons, Dragons”. Students will follow dragons on their exciting journey during this fairytale. The bright and fun colors have several different effects on children and students depending on their own personalality and taste. Teachers are able to get to know their students by evaluating if they enjoyed the reading or the pictures more. For students who enjoyed the illustrations more than the actual text, then they [...]

    9. Eric Carle's "Dragons, Dragons" is a collection of poems about various mythological creatures. The poems are written by several different authors, and Eric Carle brings each poem to life with his well known beautiful art style of mixed medias. He uses brightly colored paper and watercolor to create imagery that will stay with you for a long time. His art style is very recognizable in my opinion. It is simple yet very intriguing. I think this book would be good for young readers, but they might n [...]

    10. Course evaluation:Personal Response: I was slightly confused by this anthology. The inclusion of Eric Carle’s artwork made me think this was intended for a younger audience, but the poems are pretty advanced. Some knowledge in classical literature and a good vocabulary or dictionary would be useful to understanding the poems.Evaluation: This picture book is an effective representation of illustrations helping tell the story with the text. Carle’s use of colorful collage evokes the otherworld [...]

    11. This book is just like the others by Eric Carle, engaging young kids in a simple story but through rhyme and rhythm. This book is about dragons and other mythological creatures and legends from around the world. Besides the words, the book also captures the attention of kids by the pictures. This book can be used at most ages in elementary (mostly lower) and get the students in the rhythm of the book, recognizing the rhyming and descriptions. It can also be early practice in the lower elementary [...]

    12. I think the thing I like best about this book is the way it's framed. First page, William Blake:O! how I dreamt of things impossible.Last page, Shakespeare (A Midsummer Night's Dream):If we shadows have offended,Think but this, and all is mended,That you have but slumber'd here,While these visions did appear.And this weak and idle theme,No more yielding but a dreamDragon, mermaid, unicorn, manitcore, sphinx, Quetzalcoatl, Ganesh, Pan, White Buffalo Woman, Anansi the spider, chimera, hippogriff, [...]

    13. I read Eric Carle's Dragons Dragons to my son (6 years old) last night. He is really interested in mythical creatures so the collection was perfect for him (all of the poems in the collection are about mythical creatures). As always, Eric Carle's illustrations were beautiful. There were a wide variety of poets included in the collection, but fewer that I had already heard of compared with Animals Animals. There was also a great diversity of mythical creatures from many different cultures. My son [...]

    14. A prime example of a book picked out for the parent by the parent that we thought Charlotte would like more than she did. Matt picked this one out - we're both suckers for Carle's art, and since Charlotte is interested in dragons and other mythological creatures, we thought she'd be interested in it. It's more like a brief pictorial dictionary or encyclopedia than a story, with a mythological creature and a verse on each page (not written by Carle). In general, it's a little too old for Charlott [...]

    15. I have four kids under eight. I read a lot of kids books. Generally I don't review them here unless I am reviewing a book for a publisher or a book particularly stands out. Let's face it, a lot of picture books are insipid. But Eric Carle is the artist behind that loveableHungry Caterpillar. This book is a collection of monsters, gods, and mythological creatures. Caryle's artistic renderings are paired with poetry taken from the world of literature. Fun to read and look at and ponder each beast. [...]

    16. Eric Carle has illustrated and put together a cute poetry book with poems that are written about mythical creatures that kids have dreamt about or seen on television shows or in movies. The illustrations are phenomenal, as all of Eric Carles are and in the center of the book there is a foldout of a beautiful Chinese dragon and my favorite poem from the book which is a Chinese Mother Goose rhyme. This book is appropriate for ages 10+ If you are doing a poetry unit in school I recommend utilizing [...]

    17. It’s sometimes hard to recall, when faced by the avalanche of Eric Carle merchandise, that it all started because he is a good artist. Pair his paintings of dragons and various other mythological monsters with poems about them, and my son was mesmerized. We had to buy the book, since it wasn’t practical to fly to his cousins’ house in Colorado to re-read it. I love poetry books for kids that don’t pull any punches, because the variety of language and structure is great for them and also [...]

    18. Beautiful, glorious, a triumph. Full disclosure: I love Eric Carle's illustrations (The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of the first books I remember falling in love with), dragons and other mythological creatures, and snippets of poetry. This book brings all of those things together perfectly. I want my entire house adorned with Carle's artwork. Laura Whipple masterfully combines and juxtaposes the art with the selected text and verses. I totally adore this book and want to repeatedly,get lost i [...]

    19. Definitely not meant to be read in one sitting (especially not for toddlers and preschoolers - my two year old was uninterested). I ended up reading this one by myself since we had it from the lib anyway. The poems and illustrations were fun. This would be a cool gift for a middle-to-upper elementary kid who likes mythology. Good for a kid who can page through and read the poems independently (although I guess you could do the same along with a pre-reader).

    20. EXCELLENT compilation of poetry complemented by Eric' Carl's signature drawings of dragons and other creatures that never were.A wonderful immersion into creatures found in traditional mythical story books for the dragon and mythology lovers while introducing or deepening learning of important poets to children.Highly engaging book, highly recommend this as part of a children's reading which can also be used for poetry blocks and activities.

    21. Dragon Dragons has successfully inspired my children to learn as much as possible about mythical creatures. The poems are engaging and interesting to young readers and the illustrations spark the imaginations of my 6 and 4 year old pre-readers. Since reading Dragons Dragons, we have hit the library to learn more about Phoenix, Unicorns, Mermaid and Pegasus. This is emergent child lead learning at its best.

    22. The final poem DRAGON was clever and wisely chosen as the finale. Although I was led to believe this was geared for a much younger audience based on Eric Carle's name (and it isn't), I do think his art renderings are a perfect fit for these mythological poems. The centaur and mermaid were disturbingly graphic in their lack of modesty in a picture book format. If a choice had been made for coverage on the females' upper bodies, this book would be much better.

    23. This is a book of classic poetry about various mythological creatures including dragon, mermaid, unicorn, manitcore, sphinx, Quetzalcoatl, Ganesh, Pan, White Buffalo Woman, Anansi the spider, chimera, hippogriff, basilisk. The grade level is listed as 3. Many of these poems come from classic literature, so it may be a little dense for an 8-year old. Some of the poems make terrific read-alouds and will foster fun discussions in the classroom.

    24. This is a book of beautiful poetry for children who'd like to learn about a whole host of mythological creatures from all different cultures. At the back of the book you'll find a short essay on introducing mythology to children, followed by a more detailed explanation of each creature mentioned in the book. All this in the midst of Eric Carle's gorgeous and innovative collaged illustrations make for a wonderful book.

    25. This poetry book was really different and kind of advanced. I would like to use it to focus on one poem at a time and learn some new vocabulary. Many types of dragons are named which could incorporate lessons in science/social studies/folk history and more. I love that there is a glossary at the back of the book.

    26. I read this all the time when I was a kid. I loved learning about all the mythical creatures, which I was very interested in, I liked that there were pictures of all of them so I could draw them, and I loved that it was poetry because I could remember their descriptions easily by remembering the poems.

    27. I liked this book because each poem has a different thing like a flying animal, Beast's, a dragon's under water animals. If you like any of those animals you might want to read it because this is just a suggestion but it tells you a poem about that animal. Most of them have rhymes and there funny they also are weird looking animals.

    28. A family favorite we just dug out and re-read. I like Carle's illustrations better than his writing, and this one has great pictures. But better are the words. Whipple has picked these gems of poems and fragments about mystical creatures--we are always quoting it. It often comes in handy --these monsters are in a lot of stories and referred to often.

    29. I loved the poems that were gathered to create this book. Each poem describes a certain mythical beast. Each poem is written by a different author too. I would use this book to show to my class that poems can be written in different lengths, patterns, and rhythms. I would then have them write about a creature that could be real of fictional in a poem format.

    30. This is a fantastic collection of mythical creatures and poems that pay homage to our imagination and creativity. It has wonderful (though perhaps a bit scary for younger children) illustrations and features short poems from myriad authors.
