I would use this book with Kindergarten, 1st, and possibly second grade as a read aloud because gain understanding of actions of family members positive or negative.

I think this book could be used all the way up to third grade. Although it is intended for a very young audience, it could be incorporated into science to introduce dinosaurs and pre-historic things in social studies. Could be a fun lesson starter. ( )

This books shows that parents will always love their children, even if they have a bad attitude or make big messes. The dinosaurs in the book are not so nice to their parents and don’t listen very well. But they do always do something nice to make up for it, saying “I love you” in their own way. I love the overall message of this story, that parents have an unconditional love for their children. However I do not like that it shows children that it is okay to do bad things, as long as they do something good to make up for it. This could be basis for a class discussion. Students could talk about whether or not they think that it is okay. This book is a delightful installment of Yolen’s and Teague’s dinosaur books. ( )

This charming story about a dinosaur who keeps messing up but his mother still loves him is excellent for young readers to learn expression, prediction, and sequence of events. The big idea that love covers all is a wonderful life lesson to teach young children. ( )

This is a very cute illustration book that goes through a dinosaur misbehaving over and over. Even though he keeps getting in trouble and being disrespectful, his parents remind him over and over again how they love him always, regardless of what he does. This is a great book for the younger years to explain that people make mistakes and get in trouble, but we still love them anyways. ( )
