I got the sweetest opportunity to read and review this children’s book through a “free read” on Amazon a couple of days ago… And thank you so much Author Regina Puckett for such a delightful, cute lesson for our young ones (for all really) to learn from.

This is a story of a baby dragon, the smallest in the kingdom; while gazing wistfully out over the horizon, longing to be able to soar with powerful wings… to explore the open skies, and far away places.

His Momma could sense and see his frustrati

Baby Dragon was the smallest dragon in the kingdom. He wanted to fly like the majestic eagles. But, he could not fly. His head was too big and his wings were too small. When Mother Dragon heard his cries, she let him fly with her so he could discover the fascinating world. Baby Dragon climbed upon his loving mother's back and they went soaring through the air.
When Baby Dragon grew up he was called Mighty Dragon, because his wings were powerful and massive.

The Five Star rating isn't mine, its my young daughter's, she loved the story so much she immediately wanted me to read it again, which I promptly did, and again...and again (oh, dear). She loved the paintings of Mighty Dragon and his mother, she laughed when Baby Dragon took his first tumble, her eyes grew round at the thought of chasing stampeding zebras, and the ending brought a huge smile to her face, so thank you, Regina Puckett, you are now one of my daughter's favorite authors, and mine t ...more

This was the sweetest children's book that I have read. With nice illustrations and simple, clear writing, it sure was a delight to read. I am sure that it would be prized possession for young ones and their parents.

Even though he's the smallest dragon in the kingdom, he's determined to fly today! Trying to fly isn't too easy with small wings though. Mother dragon is here to help! Mother dragon and the smallest dragon of the kingdom sure have fun together. Will the smallest dragon of the kingdom learn to fly?

This book is perfect for teaching the lesson of persistence. Children can get discouraged so easily, but the smallest dragon teaches them it's okay to keep trying until you learn how to do something.

It's no secret I have high expectations for children's books. I think they should challenge the young and old alike to interpret and feel a broad range of emotions. Borrowed Wings by Regina Puckett hits this on every level. The cover is brilliant, grabbing your attention, and the story is no less fantastic. The artwork and story are supremely touching. I'm 27 years-old and the tale of a mother and son dragon brought tears to my manly eyes. But I'm also a teacher and see great value in the lesson ...more

This is a wonderful picture book! The message of the bond between the kids and the parents is timeless and ageless. Parents need help as they get older and as their kids "grow their own wings." A beautiful story and fantastic illustrations that complement the text, not repeat it, like many picture books do.

I loved the metaphor of borrowed wings -- when yours are too frail because you're too young or too old, you need to rely on the other person in your relationship. What a wonderful reminder for

This is a Children's fantasy book.

The story is about a mother and son dragon.

I love the underlying message which the children who read it may not get but the adult that reads it to them should. It is a wonderful job by Ms. Puckett.

Borrowed Wings is delightful in it's use of words and imagery. The story is sweet and simple yet delivers a strong message of love and family interdependence. My grandson would have loved it.

A baby dragon has trouble getting started on his wings. His mother offers hers to start him off.

A kiddies book, but well written with an interesting moral and good characters.

Cute little story. A few editing errors, nothing to big though, or to make the book lose its enjoyability. Very heartfelt.
