PreS - Gr 2-- Deciding that it would be fun to plant a garden for dinosaurs, Rex and his dog, Bones, buy some seeds for asparagus and broccoli. The garden is planted and lovingly tended. Suddenly, with a loud ``Fwamp!'' the tiny plot of ground is turned into a dinosaur jungle--complete with the roaming beasts. Rex finds an egg among some of the low-lying plants; before he can locate the mother, the hatching begins. Suddenly, the irate (Tyrannosaurus) mother appears from the foliage, and disaster looms for Rex and Bones. All is not lost, however, for the Pterodactylus flies into the picture, picks them up, and returns them home, where Rex finds another egg. And with a final ``crack,'' imaginations will be piqued. Coupled with the exuberant, cheery cartoon illustrations on each page, the well-constructed storyline and manageable text will maintain interest from the first page to the final textless page that shows a cracking, ``I-wonder-what-it-will-be'' egg. Opportunities for discussion and creative activities can be initiated easily with the open-endedness of this engaging and artfully informative book. A useful glossary is appended. Children will love this book, and librarians should plan for multiple copies. --Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, OH
