Format: Paperback
I don't rate anything 5 stars lightly.

This simple, short story (full double-page drawings with some text) is about a girl somewhere around 7 years old who imagines how fun it would be to have a gigantic dinosaur. She could walk past the scary neighbor dog, who wouldn't dare bother her with a big dinosaur by her side. She could ride it and get to school faster than the school bus. Her whole class could ride on its back on field trips. And more.

What I like about the book is the engaging pictures really grab kid's attention. The artwork is attractive. The situations are fun. It's easy to imagine being a kid reading (or listening) to this book.

I wish there was a series of these stories, though it would probably be difficult to dream up several other books as creative as this one.
