Zoey And Sassafras: Dragons and Marshmallows

Zoey And Sassafras Dragons and Marshmallows 1I am always on the lookout for chapter books that will grab the attention of my youngest and get her excited about reading, so I was instantly optimistic when I saw Zoey And Sassafras: Dragons and Marshmallows. A cute dragon, magic, a mystery, and a young girl; all things that promised a fun book. The story is about a young budding scientist that finds out that there are magical creatures in the world. When a sick dragon needs her help, Zoey uses science to figure out what to do. My daughter loved the fun, fast paced story and looked forward to reading the next chapter. I loved how the author, Asia Citro, creatively wove science into the story. It was both entertaining and educational. And I love when books depict and inspire our young girls’ involvement in STEM. But don’t pass up this book for your young boys either because it’s a book anyone could appreciate. My youngest also really liked the illustrations by Marion Lindsay. It brought a fun visual for my daughter to enjoy while I read to her. Overall, I think this was a really good book for early, more reluctant readers and I am excited to check out the next book in the series to see what Zoey and Sassafras do next.
