Review: Happy Birthday, Good Knight by Shelley Moore Thomas

846153The much-loved Good Knight is back again . . . and it’s his birthday! His three little dragon friends want to surprise him. They try to make a cake—but all they make is a mess. A card? Another mess—glitter and glue all over the room.Then the theatrical performance is a flop.Time is running out, and the poor little dragons must find a special way to say Happy Birthday, Good Knight. They do, and it’s a good day’s fun in this perfectly pitched easy reader.

Good Night, Good Knight, the first in the Good Knight series, was an ALA Notable Book and a Booklist Top 10 Easy Reader, among other honors.

We picked this book up from K's school library.
The Good Knight series is a fun and repetitive series of books. We got a good laugh at the messes that the dragons ended up making while trying to make something special for a birthday person. The lesson that was taught within this story is one that is perfect for little ones to learn about. It is the thought of giving a gift from the heart instead of having money to give something. It is pretty much the thought that counts.  
This is a good book for the early readers to read. The pictures are funny and we get to see what the dragons are going to be up to next.
