Younger grades love this silly story of a boy who, expecting to be bored when he goes on errands with his mom, is delighted to discover that this is the day that dinosaurs are free with EVERYTHING. Want a dozen donuts? Sure, but you'll need to take a dinosaur with that. Instead of a sticker from the doctor, pick a dinosaur (two if you get a shot). David Small's illustrations are hilarious, perfectly capturing the boy's glee and Mom's horrified disbelief. But Mom comes through in the end, and turns lemons into lemonade (or in this case, several pet dinosaurs in the backyard into household helpers). Pairs wonderfully with What Pet To Get?.
