Two Terrific New Picture Books!

Happy book birthday to HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR DINOSAUR and WAITING FOR CHICKEN SMITH!!! 

"Dinosaurs love company. Why not encourage you pet to meet new people and make friends? This can also be a good opportunity to teach your dinosaur about...sharing"

How to Take Care of Your Dinosaur, by  Jason Cockcroft, is delightfully fun to read. The illustrations enhance the already entertaining story with comical and expressive characters. The story follows a routine that will mirror most kids daily routines in a way that is both predictable and surprising. This is a great bedtime book for any dinosaur or pet lover.






"I'm waiting for Chicken Smith.  He won't be long now."


Waiting for Chicken Smith, by David Mackintosh, is a quirky, child-like story about a kid who is waiting for his summer friend to show up.  As his younger sister repeatedly tries to get his attention, he ignores her and explains that he can't attend to her because he is waiting for Chicken Smith.  Finally the main character listens to his sister and is rewarded with a delightful surprise.  Perhaps sisters can be just as much fun as friends?  The whimsical illustrations add to the well chosen text and help young readers understand loss and appreciate the relationships that they have.
