"Die geheime Welt der Gartendrachen" (The secret world of gardendragons ) is a german children's book that introduces children and parents to seven tiny dragon species that hide in their garden. With their unique flames they can grow plants in an instant, building themselves a home where they can hunt for food and attract bees to pollinate their flowers. Gardendragons are the sworn protectors of bees, who they depend on in order for their host plants to continue to flourish and grow in the following year.
Through a mix of facts and fantasy, "The secret world of gardendragons" intends to teach both children and adults about the importance of bees and what we can do to save them. With seven different flowers and their dragons introduced, the book offers tips on how to make both your balcony and garden more bee- and dragon-friendly, and encourages children to explore and observe nature around them more closely.
