Your child will use Teamwork to face an arduous trek across the desert and Listening Skills to turn a sword-wielding warrior into a loyal friend. Working with others in a team is a great way for children to learn the social and emotional skills they will need as they grow up. It is also a great way to make new friends!

As they plan each step and achieve each goal they become stronger and more confident in their abilities. "If I could do that, then maybe I could do this too..."

An adventure where your child is the hero.

Hidden deep in the mountains is the Eye of Draco, a massive, sparkling gem which is the source of all the color and light of the world. But then the crystal is stolen by a gang of greedy men and the world is plunged into endless gloom.

In a fading world without color it’s a race against time to find the crystal and save the world from eternal darkness.

Do you have the skill and courage to face the Dragon and save the world from darkness?

Are you the hero the world has been waiting for?

The adventure continues...

This is book one in the Star Dragon trilogy. By the end of the final book your child will have experienced the life changing benefits of Goals, dreams and planning for success, Teamwork and empathy, Leadership in action and Doing the right thing (even when no-one is looking)

Parent and Teacher reviews:

“I have been looking for a book just like this for a long time. It offers moral guidelines, entertains, and teaches all at the same time!” M.Todd. Father of 5 children (Amazon Review)

“We use this book with grades 1-3. A few of the younger kids need some help with the vocabulary which can stretch them a bit at times but most of our children in 2-3 are fine with it on their own. What they learn varies with each child but the benefits of setting goals and working with others are clear throughout. I would recommend it to any K-12 educator or home-schooler wanting to introduce children to these life skills.” Gill Kendrick. Head Teacher

About the Author:

David Machin, author of 'The Star Dragon' series

As adults, we have access to the wisdom of life coaches and Gurus who help us develop the attitudes and behaviors of successful people. This life-enabling knowledge is now available to the most important people on the planet - our children.

During the last 23 years as a business consultant, I have been involved in many Life Skills Development programs and have been closely involved in the evolution of Life Skills education for children. My responsibility for the implementation of the Elementary curriculum has given me a unique opportunity to observe the effect these life skills can have on the social and emotional development of young children. Many of these insights have been incorporated in to 'The Star Dragon'.

Storytelling is probably the most effective way to teach behavioral concepts to young children. They are influenced by the characters and the plot. That is why we have chosen storytelling as our primary tool in speaking directly to kids.

I do hope your children enjoy reading our stories and they go on to lead happy and successful lives.

David Machin
