Steven Kellog has been one of my favorite authors/ illustrators since I was a little child. I really like the way he takes a crazy idea like a Great Dane going to a dinosaur museum and breaking through the chains and chewing on dinosaur bones. I know this is a crazy idea but in the back of my mind, I'm thinking, "a great dane probably could chew on a small dinosaur bone." This would be a great book to read to your class before you go on a field trip to discuss proper behavior on the field trip....more
Picture Book: This book had an interesting storyline. It sort of confused me because I never associated dogs with dinosaurs. Quick synopsis: Pinkerton is a great Dane related to the dinosaurs. His great great great great…grandmother was a stegosaurus. The little girl narrator takes him to the museum and he eats a dinosaur bone. He’s teething.
