Have You Seen My Dragon

Title: Have You Seen My Dragon?

Author: Steve Light

Summary:

A dragon gets away from a boy and wanders about the city.  In this intricately illustrated pen and ink picture book, readers can search along the pages and spot the dragon as he stops to get a hot dog, take a swim, and help the delivery man.  Although this could be a counting book since each page counts a new item in the city (such as 17 taxi cabs), the book lends itself to a lesson in way finding and using and constructing maps.  At the end of the book, a map of the city with all 20 stops the dragon made is revealed.
