That's What Wings are for by Patrick Guest


That's What Wings are for by Patrick Guest

There are three things that all respectable dragons need: strong wings for flying, strong breath for breathing fire, and strong, shiny scales to guard them from the dragon slayers. Bluey the Dragon had none of these things. Sharing this empowering story with a child is a great way to help them discover that everyone is good at different things, and to encourage them to develop their own special talents. That's What Wings Are For is inspired by the Duchenne Foundation's dragon mascot and is dedicated to children with Duchenne Muscular Dystroph.
