This book is so sweet, it features Sterling who is a knight and Nugget the Dragon. I think this book is good for teaching children about empathy and not judging a book by it's cover.

Sterling is dreaming of becoming a Knight. Nugget is a dragon who enjoys flying. Sterling has a great determination to become a knight he has a plan to achieve his dream. Sterling found himself in a different situation than he thought. Nugget is a dragon but he doesn't want to hurt he just wants to enjoy life. Can these two convince others that it's okay? My son loved the pictures and the story as they flowed well and made a good reference towards friendships and differences as well as misunderstandings.

This book has beautiful art that is eye catching. The art is joyful and has bright colors which is important in children's books because it will help keep them interested in the story. I know for sure my nephew will love reading it. The story is really cute and I enjoyed the message behind it, of showing kindness to those who you have misunderstood and learning to help because they are not what you thought they would be.

I loved how the illustrations gave me How to Train Your Dragon vibes! It's very easy to read and the characters are very lovable.

I loved the illustrations. A lot. But overall I thought it as a copy from How To Train Your Dragon and I wanted something more original. But the illustrations were awesome.

I recommend reading this book at schools and in social skills groups because of the great message of empathy. I also liked the addition of the main character doing research at the library. The illustrations have great depictions of a variety of facial expressions that can be discussed with the group as an extension activity.

Thank you so much to Morgan James Kids and Netgalley for the ebook to read and review.

Sterling watches the knights in shining armour every day, with everyone afraid of the dragon the flies outside the walls. He decides he is going to become one and slay the evil dragon, but then he finds that what he knew isn’t correct.

I love this story it is so beautiful and sends a great message for helping those in need. Sterling had it in his mind that the dragon was only what he’d heard, read or knew. The instant he saw the dragon his opinions changed and he used all his skills in kindness to make the dragons life better.

The illustrations were really beautiful and I loved seeing the beautiful dragon, the cute tiny village that Sterling lived in. This is such a great book for teaching children about kindness and compassion, that what you know may not be true. It is also a fun fantasy story tat takes you to a whole different world and is so fun to read

This was a great story with fantastic illustrations. Nugget the dragon broke everyone’s expectations and helped Sterling become both brave and compassionate!

My 3 year old son really enjoyed this book. He liked the story and the illustrations. I like the deeper meaning that you can't judge a book (or dragon) by its appearance and that you should always try to help those in need if you can.

Sterling wants nothing more than to become a knight. He decides that the only way to do this is to prove his worth by slaying the dragon that lives nearby.
This is a sweet book with gorgeous illustrations. Perfect for any child to read who enjoys a world with a bit of fantasy.

Sterling and Nugget the Dragon is a very adorable short story about not judging a book by its cover and lending a hand when you're able. Sterling wants desperately to become a knight in shining armor and figures the way to do that is by slaying the dragon that lives outside of his town. When he goes to do so, he discovers the dragon is injured and in need of help. Through this Sterling and Nugget the dragon teach children that choosing kindness goes a long way. I loved it and I can't wait to be able to read it to my nanny kids.

This book is too cute. Nugget and Sterling are so cute. Sterling prepared to fight a big mean dragon. But upon his arrival at Nugget's liar, Nugget was hurt so instead of fighting Nugget, Sterling helped healed Nugget. This book made me smile. I absolutely loved it.

This fun book tells the story of a boy (who becomes a knight) and a dragon. There are lots of fairytale elements such as magical creatures and happily ever after endings. The illustrations are beautiful! The amount of text on the page is really good, and the font is fairly large, though it can be hard to see on some pages. It is a nice picture book and the perfect gift for a kiddo you love. I would recommend this book for children in the 4-8 range. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me the chance to read and review this book!
