DINOSAURS! Just saying...

OK, so in this story Tinysaurus is a baby dinosaur. He wishes he could be bigger like Daddysaurus or Bigsissysaurus. He wants to go places that Bigsissysaurus goes without having Mommysaurus come with him. His favorite thing is looking after the eggs. Then, one day, a Nastysaurus comes and attacks the nest! What will Tinysaurus do? He grabs the nest and runs! In the end Tinysaurus learns that sometimes it's good to be small.
I liked the lesson here and the story is good.
PB 2: This book is very relate able to smaller children or children with older siblings. It's also a fun dinosaur book and who doesn't love that?! I like the illustrations and the differing fonts, it makes it fun and easier to read-a-loud. It's also a good story line that's easy to follow. I absolutely love the made-up dinosaur names, so cute.

This was the first book with a more involved storyline that my toddler enjoyed. It's written in a very energetic style, which makes it great fun to read aloud.
