Summary:This mordern fantasty is about learning to share fairly. Dinosaurs were portrayed in a normal school setting where they demonstrated actual children behaviors. It was about an extremly selfish dinosaur who claimed everything was his. Then his classmates abandoned him because he refused to share. This made feel alone and sad. Therefore, he decided to make amends by trying to share. Although his classmates were a bit reluctant, they allowed him to come joined them finally. But he did not actually change, he only changed to suit the sitution. In other words, it was a means to an end. In the end, he displayed his same selfish ways by claiming that his classmates belonged to him.Personal:This is a very interesting story. It would definately be appropiate for gradek- one. They could easily relate to this story because this is how children that age usually act.Classroom:There can be a whole class discussion about persons or themselves who have been selfish. How did they react or how persons reacted to themThe teacher can ask students to bring in something to share in class. The things will be placed on a table and there will be a period where things will be shared equally. The students will not be allowed to give who they want.

My two-year-old son wants us to read this book many times every day. Cute story, fun rhymes, and great message make 'The Mine-O-Saur' worth adding to your child's collection.

My daughter asks to read this each night before bedtime. It teaches a great lesson and is nicely illustrated.
