This fun, modern fantasy book tells the story of how a dinosaur can still be loved no matter what he does. Whether he flooded the kitchen or kept kicking his parents seat in the car, his parents still love him. The dinosaur always would do something right to make up for the wrong. He would clean up his messes or stay close to his mom in the store. His parents repeatedly told him how much they loved him. ( )

I would use this book to teach a sequence of events and tell what each dinosaur did. I would also, encourage my students to predict what would happen next in the book. This book provides many opportunities for students to read with expression.( Especially the page the dinosaur makes a mess at dinner). ( )

This picture book is about a dinosaur, who is not behaving very well. He keeps misbehaving and being disrespectful. After each time he misbehaves, the parents reassure him that the still love him. They love him no matter what he does.

Personal Reaction
I read this book to my children when they get into trouble. This book helps me reassure them that even though they sometimes get into trouble, I still loved them. This book also helps me point out bad behavior to them.

Classroom Extensions
While reading this book, you can ask the children if the dinosaur's behavior is good or bad behavior.
You could also reassure children that even though they misbehave at times, they are still loved.
You can also point out to the children, that their parents forgive them, and that they should forgive their friends.

I like this book a lot. I love Jane Yolen and this book it great for kids. I think it will be a good way for little ones to identify with the dinosaurs. ( )
