Douglas would lay awake at night thinking about flying. Soaring through the skies, he would pretend to swoop over castles and through valleys, touching the crystal water with the tip of his wing before bursting through clouds and elegantly landing to a roaring cheer from the onlookers. So when Douglas finally received flying lessons for his sixth birthday, he had only one thing on his mind: flying, real dragon flying! However, Douglas soon learns what scaly accidents can occur if you are not being observant and watching for other flyers when crossing a busy flight path... This book will help children understand the importance of road safety. This story is told as a metaphor to read aloud to children and enjoy together. The vibrant illustrations and use of language draws children in to be part of the adventure, gently guiding them alongside the characters to get the message on a more personal level for them, to make their own meanings and take control of their own life situation - in their own way.
