This is fun book...wishing you had an extinct pre historic in your life, oh the time you would have! There are some serious benefits if you have a T-rex...but mostly not a very practical pet.... Fun book! Looks like the pictures were done in a very neat looking crayon/colored pencil technique.

This book is aboo talks about reasons ut a boy who talks about reasons why he would like a T- rex to his dad. It is a good fiction book to read before implmenting a lesson on persuasive writing. This is a great read of second graders and up.

This book was fun to read to my 7 year old. A boy keeps asking his dad if he can have a T-rex and telling him all the good things that would happen if he had one for a pet.
Great example to use for talking about author's purpose and persuasive writing.
