When Dragons Hearts Were Good by Buddy Davis (includes an audio CD of story and song)

ISBN:  9780890512593
Master Books a Division of

My thoughts on the book: Children are fascinated by dragons and dinosaurs.  Give a boy or girl an opportunity to dig through a toy bin, and if it contains dragons amongst the mix, many will pick the ferocious beasties from long ago. Why? Well, who knows? But they do love to play with them.

In When Dragons' Hearts were Good author and vocalist Buddy Davis tells in a charming manner that back in the early days of Creation when Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden, dragons walked amongst them and, yes, dragons' hearts were good. You see, everything, was good then because sin had not entered the world.

Illustrated in softly muted tones of nature - greens, yellows, blues, etc. the story in pictures conveys a calmness to the tone of the story. You see it was all good then, no evil, no danger, no problems.

The book's written story is longish for the very young, but it can still be used with the young and also for the young reader. With the book is an audio CD with Buddy Davis reading the story. On the CD also is his song of the same title, When Dragons' Hearts Were Good. You can even download sheet music so you can play along by clicking HERE.  I can recommend this for the home, church, or school. It will entertain and educate.
