Ember the Dragon and the Birthday Surprise by Kay Lynne Virgin teaches children to persevere no matter how hard the task at hand may seem.
Ember is celebrating his birthday and receives a visit from his three grandchildren, Amber, Char and Soot. As the three dragons arrive Amber and Char land with ease and greet their grandfather. Soot, however, struggles with landing and crashes to the ground creating a giant crater. Seeing the mess he created Soot believes he will never be able to do anything right. Wanting to ease Soot's disappointment, Ember tells the children a story of when he was an uncoordinated dragon who could not land without crashing. Soot is encouraged by Ember's story. He now knows that persistence and practice will make him a mighty dragon just like his grandfather.
Ember the Dragon and the Birthday Surprise reminds children that everything takes practice and with hard work and encouragement they can do anything!
