What did you like about the book? Kids who love dinosaurs and have a lively imagination will love this book. The brightly colored illustrations show a little boy fantasizing about being a dinosaur and a very patient mother going along with the fantasy. She gently persuades him to get ready for bed by playing into the dinosaur game. Right from the front cover, it’s obvious that this is going to be a fun book. On one page, the mother tells the child to do something to get ready for bed and on the opposite page, it shows a dinosaur doing the same thing in the wild. The little boy is defiant, but in the end, even little dinosaurs have to sleep.
Anything you didn’t like about it? I liked everything about this book.
