Dex has the sweetest heart and the roughest touch. He breaks his toys, has difficulty with personal space, and has an energy level that idles on high! Dex deeply desires to play with a family of baby birds, but his request is denied until he can learn to be gentle and kind. Join this misunderstood dragon as he creatively learns how to have a gentle touch.
