Game Of Thrones, Children’s Edition

The Huffington Post

There’s nothing quite like sharing the joy of reading with a friend. Suggesting and enjoying books and stories build bonds that last forever. Lately, the most popular series on the planet is “A Song of Fire and Ice”, the inspiration for the astoundingly popular HBO program “Game of Thrones,” But, how do you share this captivating and often times very adult-themed story with a precocious youngster? Fear not, parents. The acclaimed author George R.R. Martin has written a children’s companion to “A Song of Fire and Ice” called “The Ice Dragon.” Rather, Martin had written the story in 1980, but the TV show’s popularity provided the impetus for the story’s re-release. “The Ice Dragon” will hit the shelves October 21st, complete with illustrations. Older readers are recommended to give the kid-friendly excursion into Westeros a read as well.

Enjoy sharing the fantastical tales with your children; just try to hide the HBO GO account password from them, because they’re probably not ready to watch the series yet.
