Dino PetsBe too fast but there are advantages too a Seismosaurus makes a great backyard playset In this bouncy read aloud the larger than life but well meaning dinosaurs come to life in vibrant color. I recently came across this book at the library and remembered using it in my classroom when I was a preschool teacher I had used Dino Pets with one and two year olds during our unit on dinosaurs and they always enjoyed it Dino Pets follows a young boy who takes home all different kinds of dinosaurs for pets but none of them works out He picks the biggest dino the smallest the longest the scariest but either they don’t fit in his house they run away or they frighten his family He runs out of dinosaurs to get from the pet shop and is sad but in the end all the dinos come back to him because “No one likes to sleep alone” This is a cute story about trying to find just the right pet that adds in the clever turn of the pets being dinosaurs I like that it shows an assortment of dinosaurs that are not often used in other books and an author’s note at the back tells the name of each dinosaur featured in the book as well as some information about it Kids may enjoy listening to the rhyme in Dino Pets and seeing the funny scenes when the dinosaurs interact with humans Kendall’s bright and friendly illustrations really bring the story to life and don’t make the dinosaurs seem scary I only rate this four out of five stars because the rhythm is sometimes uneven This is a fun imaginative and educational book
