In “How to Train Your Dragon: Gobber’s Guide to Battling Dragons” we are introduced to the Vikings of Berk and to the dragons that they need to fight against to defend their island. Lessons about six different dragons are presented in this book.

Cayden: “I liked learning about all of the different kinds of dragons and the different things that they could do. We learned some of this in the one of the other ‘How to Train Your Dragons’ books but this one had more stuff in it. I liked when they had the fact things in the red circles on the pages. My favorite one was the dragon that could fly through fire but didn’t get burned. I can’t wait to see this movie!”
