BUYING, TRAINING, AND CARING FOR YOUR DINOSAUR
Beth at Cover to Cover shared this fun book with me this week. It is called BUYING, TRAINING, AND CARING FOR YOUR DINOSAUR. It is written by Laura J. Rennert and Illustrated by Marc Brown. This book is quite fun. This is written in the same format you would find any pet-care book. It tells you how to choose the right dinosaur, how to train dinosaurs, how to bathe your dinosaur, and more. Each page focuses on one piece of advice with so much added information about dinosaurs. As you can guess, this book is quite amusing and I can see it as a really fun one to study in writing workshop. Some pages follow the genre of How-To writing while other pages give advice such as advice for when traveling by car, "Make sure to leave the windows open. Extra leg room, or in this case, head and tail room is always good." Marc Brown's illustrations are too fun--colorful and happy and you often find yourself forgetting that dinosaurs do not really make good pets. Everyone in the pictures seems so happy having one as a pet!
