Bearded Dragon, Home Alone

Bearded Dragon, Home Alone is a beautiful wordless picture book by Adam Beck, author of Maximize Your Child’s Bilingual Ability and Bilingual Success Stories Around the World. Full of fun and joy, the story is told through the pictures alone which makes it perfect for sharing with children in any language. With 46 engaging, full-color pages, the book can serve as an enjoyable and effective resource for language input and interaction in homes and schools worldwide. While ideal for read-aloud time with younger kids (try having your child “read” the book to you!), it can be used to inspire writing practice in older kids, too.
Bearded dragon is a quiet, mild-mannered little lizard when others are around. But when this spunky reptile is home alone, it’s a very different story! Let the mischief-making begin in this joyful wordless picture book, a fun-filled romp for kids and grown-ups alike!

Available at booksellers, worldwide, in paperback.

Bearded Dragon Daydreams Coloring Book

A fun-filled coloring book for all ages, Bearded Dragon Daydreams finally answers the profound question that has puzzled the world for centuries:

What are bearded dragons thinking when they’re staring into space?

In this delightful book you’ll find 30 illustrations that show what these thoughtful creatures are daydreaming about when sitting quietly and gazing off into the distance. In addition, there are two “challenge pages” for drawing your own bearded dragon daydreams.

Each coloring page is single-sided, with the back intentionally left blank, so they can be colored more cleanly and even removed from the book for display, if desired.

Along with coloring and drawing fun, this book can be used in various ways to promote language development in children. It includes a page of useful ideas to help parents make the most of the book as a productive language tool with their kids.

Available at booksellers, worldwide, in paperback.
