Overview

An early chapter book from Newbery Medal winner Betsy Byars
 

When Boo brings home a dinosaur that only she can see, her brother Sammy, doesn’t want to encourage her antics. Boo and her dinosaur are inseparable until Boo says good-bye to the dino quite suddenly.

When Sammy sees how sad his sister is, he understands Boo’s need for her dinosaur more than he wants to admit. So much so that he almost believes it . . . almost.

Betsy Byars has written many chapter books, including Little Horse and Little Horse on His Own. Her language, perfectly tailored to beginning readers, combines with Erik Brooks’s charming illustrations to make a delightful book for children who are just starting to read.
 

Boo's Dinosaur is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-This charming early chapter book tells the story of a girl who "finds" a dinosaur when she goes outside to play. Boo insists that she needs a particular book from the library to read to it, and then that she and her older brother, Sammy, must jump on her bed so that the dinosaur can see them through the window. In true older-sibling fashion, the boy at first tries to deter her but is eventually forced to give in or come to some sort of compromise. Brooks's illustrations show the action as well as Boo's flights of fancy. Byars takes full advantage of short words and sentences, helping readers to see themselves both in Boo's plays for attention and Sammy's desire for some peace and quiet. In the end, when Boo has to give up her dinosaur, she and Sammy share a lovely moment of mutual understanding. A natural recommendation for graduates of Syd Hoff's Danny and the Dinosaur (HarperCollins, 1958), this book is a welcome addition.-Adrienne Furness, Webster Public Library, NY Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Little sister Boo will not leave big brother Sammy alone so he can read. Eventually he gives in and reads his book aloud to her and her toy dinosaur. Inspired by her brother's book, Boo goes out and finds a dinosaur of her own. When her parents humor her and let the dinosaur stay, Boo declares herself "the luckiest girl in the world." Despite his older brother stature, Sammy almost believes Boo when she tells about the flights she makes, the happy rumbling her imaginary friend makes and the high bed-bounces required for the dinosaur to see Boo in the window. And, when the dinosaur leaves, Sammy is there to comfort his little sister. Frequent warm black-and-white illustrations extend the text and provide ample visual cues in this reassuring tale of sibling love for new readers. (Fiction. 6-9)
