What would the world be like if the dinosaurs came back? Well, just think of all the useful things they could do! They could reach books from tall shelves, cut down trees, mow lawns, give giraffes someone to look up to--and, most of all, be pets for those who love dinosaurs! Most's whimsical first book, illustrated with simple, childlike drawings, is a springboard for discussion with young dinosaur lovers.

This is a wonderful book to start a discussion with young people about what would happen if the dinosaurs did come back, and why it's not a process that could ever happen. But it's ALWAYS fun to think of the what if possibility! Written by a preschool teacher~

This author is amazing! I read this book as a child and found it again as an adult. Kids love the exciting storyline. There is a great sense of imagination for them to identify with.

My daughter is really in to dinosaurs, doesn't give alot of information. She would like to learn more about dinosaurs. This was more of a cutesy story.
