Review

Suppose You Meet a Dinosaur is a hilariously entertaining book about manners set in the most unusual circumstances – meeting a dinosaur at the grocery store! This whimsical story teaches young children how to interact with others using politeness and respect in a variety of situations. The book’s rhyming question and answer format encourages listeners to chime in with answers as they learn more about manners. A closer look at the book’s charming illustrations reveals some hidden humor, as the lady dinosaur’s grocery cart is filled with goodies aptly named “Caveman Crunch” and “Dino Soup.” Parents and educators will adore this book’s entertaining lessons on manners, which children will quickly learn and imitate. Recommended. Kirsten Setzkorn, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
