"…green scales fell like rain…"
Puff The Magic Dragon is my granddaughter’s favorite book. The poignant tale of innocence-lost that’s memorialized in the song by Peter Paul and Mary appeals to young and old alike. Children love Puff the gigantic, gentle dragon, befriended by Jackie Paper. Parents enjoy the subtle subplot about a boy who eventually leaves childhood behind and acquires an imagination that no longer has room for “painted wings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff.” Put it under the tree for your little one.
