Ian and the Great Silver Dragon; A Friendship Begins follows Ian and the Great Silver Dragon Bry-Ankh, a series of stories that sow the seeds for success. These are adventure stories showing middle grade readers how to make their dreams come true. These are books with a positive message and tools for success and personal accomplishment, based on ancient wisdom. The idea is that dreams are “things” that can become real when readers know the recipe. Whatever the heart and mind of an individual can conceive, and believe, it can achieve.
This story is about a young boy who is befriended by a wise and very old Silver dragon who, with the boys permission, will become his mentor and teacher. The intent of the story is to instill in the minds of children that they can be, do, and have what they want from life. When you know the correct recipe the fun of creation can begin. It is the starting point for continuing life lessons and interactions with a very kind and loving dragon.
