Danny loves dinosaurs. When he sees one at the museum, he thinks aloud that it would be nice to play with one. When a dinosaur answers Danny, they have a wonderful adventure together.

A cute children’s I Can Read book written and published in 1958. It is similar to the Dick and Jane I Can Read books, which are the books we learned to read in school. I’m just now reminded of a book my mom bought us girls about Harry the dog written by Gene Zion. I remember specifically reading “Harry the Dirty Dog (1956), which I just now read again free on Archive.org website. I had totally forgotten about that book. Unfortunately, my family didn’t save any of our childhood books.

This is 1 of 4 books saved by the Woolwine family. It was in with my cousin’s (Lancer Woolwine) family photos, which I am currently organizing for their family. ( )

My son reports this is likely a brontosaurus. A fun beginners book.

Simple story but engaging for a young child.
The illustrations are "dated" but suit the text.
Still good fun.
(Dates are for latest re-reading.) ( )
