This is a fun story to read aloud with children It s a bit long for younger readers to read on their own, but perfect for a bedtime story It has a repetitive narrative that is comforting to kids and expressive and colorful illustrations that go perfectly with the story Our girls really enjoyed this story. Three little dragons are sick in their cave Feeling awful, their noses drip and they sneeze and cough The good knight, while keeping a close, watchful eye on his kingdom, discovers the achy dragons and sets out to make them better He goes to the old wizard who knows just the thing a pot of soup But the dragons refuse to eat it because it s a scaly, snail y soup How will the good knight get them better Cute book with sweet illustrations The book is listed as an early reader book, but I don t think it would be that great for a beginning reader it s amusing and cute, but there are too many non existent words in it Good book to read aloud to younger children, in my opinion. Mama knows best.8 29 18 Read with Julia. Get Well, Good Knight tells the story of three little dragons who get sick When their friend, Good Knight, finds out, he runs to a wizard to find a cure, only things don t turn out that well Get Well, Good Knight is a friendly story about dragons and knights for kids that love fantasy, but may not be ready for some of the advanced fantasy books The book makes use of repetition and the rule of three it takes the Knight three times to find a cure to create a familiar mindset for young readers The illustrations are done in a sketchy manner that doesn t look sloppy The illustrator, Jennifer Plecas, has hidden talent for characterization through clutter When we meet the little dragons, we notice that there are piles of toys and objects around each of their beds, each pile giving us a different idea about what kind of character each dragon is The same occurs when we first meet the wizard, who is surrounded with books and cats Recommended Grade Level Kindergarten to 2rd grade Love this series of books The poor little dragons are sick, so their good friend, the Good Knight, tries to help them get better His attempts do not turn out so well, as the remedies only make it worse In the end it teaches the importance of being a good friend and the comical tale of how to get better Great read aloud for kindergarten and first grade Independant for first and secong grade Uses illustration, sequencing, and repitition to scaffold the reader. We picked this book up from K s school library.I have never read a Good Knight series And I really enjoyed reading them to K They are repetitive so that helps those that are reading We Get Well, Good Knight we see the kind good knight help take care of his dragon buddies K and I found it funny when the good knight went to see the wizard and he was adding not so good ingredients into a pot We had a good laugh at what he was adding This is a great read for those that I would say are level two readers The pictures go great with the story being told. Malcolm says, I like the title because it was get well and I thought it meant get well to the knight And I like how the knight talks like methinks because that was funny And also, knights usually fight dragons, but this knight says, me little dragon friends and they usually fight them but he s their friend And that s all. My little reluctant reader Aspie obsessed with dragons, knights, etc loves all the good knight books They will appeal to boys and girls cos they are about noble knights and cute little baby dragons The stories are sweet and kinda funny I think we ve read them all from the library and have started collecting them for his own little library. Cute story that all beginning readers can relate to Everyone gets a cold, and in this story, the three dragons have come down with colds The good knight standing watch puts it on himself to take care of the situation After multiple visits to the wizard, he realizes that the dragons do not want anything gross to cure them He then recruits the help of his mother, who comes up with chicken soup as a remedy The dragons get better, and we learn that mothers know best Great story. The Much Heralded Good Knight Is Back Only This Time His Three Little Dragon Friends Are Sick In Bed Their Scaly Foreheads Are Hot And Their Noses Are Drip Drip Dripping They Feel Awful The Good Knight Comes To The Rescue Again He Brings Them Some Slimy, Grimy Soup From The Wizard To Make Them Feel Better But The Dragons Wont Touch It What Is A Good Knight To Do
