Dragon Daily News: Stories of Imagination for Children of All Ages written by Gene Twaronite is a delightful collection of short stories that introduce young readers to a creative mindset where imagination has no limits. This collection has within it secret life lessons to be learned. Young readers may not realize this when they are letting their imaginations take full effect in the fun and exciting stories The Dragon Daily News provides.

Young children love stories where there are no limits of imagination, and relatable elements of the story intrigue them to read more. This collection of stories has both. For example, learning how to cope with bullying not by the use of physical fighting, but with an intellectual approach. Also, reading and learning a new vocabulary with an adventurous, exciting tale of words flying out of their books due to a small glitch in a computer system.

Gene Twaronite's collection of short stories is ideal for parents and teachers to provide children with a way to learn imaginative play and creative thinking, as well as a new vocabulary. Adults who remember reading old folk tales, myths, and legends of mystical, exciting, adventurous places, will love this collection to read aloud to their children. Reading this exciting collection, I was taken back to my own childhood when times were simple and your imagination was the most important element in having fun.
