In this delightful book, a small boy imagines a world where dinosaurs perform public services. “Bold lines accentuate imaginative, humorous ideas. A natural for student response: students formulate their own outcomes about what would happen if the dinosaurs returned. An overwhelming favorite in the early grades.”The Reading Teacher

This book predicts what might happen if dinosaurs came back. Unlike Jurassic Park, this book envisions dinosaurs doing the bidding of humans- carrying them around, plowing their fields with their horns, etc. Though completely unrealistic, it makes a good writing set up for an "imagine if" type assignment.
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.
