Dinner for Dinos

One of the best things you can do with your children is read to them. I picked up the recently-released book Dinner for Dinos for my 2-year-old daughter. It tells the story of a group of dinosaurs who decided to have a picnic. They go shopping at the grocery store, learn about the importance of eating their vegetables, practice setting the table, pray, and enjoy. The lessons are simple, which is just what you need for a toddler. Forks on the left, spoons on the right.

The book uses rhyming couplets to keep the rhythm, and the drawings are cartoonish. The point isn't to teach your children anything about dinosaurs anymore than Arthur is meant to teach them about aardvarks. It's all just fun.

I enjoyed the quick read, given my daughter's (and sometimes my) short attention span. My five-year-old son also enjoyed the pictures, but the story is a little below his level.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in order to write this review.
