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. ( )

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). ( )
