“Dragon Tales: Don’t Give Up!” is a wonderful compilation of five television episodes which are all related to things that children deal with on a daily basis. The main characters, Max and Emmy, are presented as normal kids who get mad, argue and have bad days just like any other kids. As Dragon Land is a somewhat enchanted place, there are some magical things that happen and a magic poem is used to get there.
This DVD teaches great lessons about problem solving, not being a sore loser, being kind even when others aren’t and following directions. There is even a bit of Spanish taught here and there! With a catchy theme song, interesting stories and lovable dragon characters, even adults will be wishing they could go on a Dragon Land adventure! “Dragon Tales: Don’t Give Up!” easily earns the Dove Seal for family-friendly viewing!!
