3+: When Dinosaur's Came with Everything - Elise Broach and David Small


Imagine if instead of getting the usual lollipop or sticker everywhere you go, there was something bigger on offer...something much, much bigger! This is exactly what happens when a little boy accompanies his mum on a busy shopping trip. Just when the little boy thinks he's going to die of boredom, something very unusual happens...shops everywhere are giving away a very special treat with every purchase ~ a free dinosaur! It's a dream come true...except, what exactly do you do with these Jurassic treats? And how do you convince mum to let you keep them?


Shopping is an onerous task but in this offering theres a bonus. A free dinosaur with your purchase. But what could you do with them? How would you look after them and of course a Mum who learns of the fun she can have with her son. A great tale (or tail if you prefer) and one that really was a lot of fun. Whilst this isn’t a brand new story I love it when I get the chance to find out about books that have been out for a number of years that will have magical connotations when read to the younger generation. If you want something to help your own little “monster” get to sleep at night and have fun with the beautiful artwork then this is a real gem to pick up. Great stuff.
