An Imaginative Look on Dinosaurs in the 21st Century

  • Apr 7, 2010
Rating:
+5
"Dinos From Space" is a sure fire winner for children. It brings together many of the things that light up a child's imagination.... dinosaurs, space ships, and the a philosophical look at our modern busy life - but I bet your kids will focus on the space ships and dinosaurs! There are may things to enjoy within the story

- The illustrations (original water colors) are out-of-this-world (pun intended) - They offer vibrant colors while and will do a great job of bringing smiles to young faces. Parents will also enjoy the artistic quality to the illustrations - well worth the price of the book.

- The rhyme scheme is very catchy and humorous - it brings thoughts of Shel Silverstein.

- I liked the message a little more than my wife. The message is that life has gotten so complicated that the dinosaurs wish they had never returned to earth. My wife thinks that is a little too strong of an indictment on today's society but I disagree. I think that it is important that we teach our children that it is ok to take life at a slower pace.

Final Verdict - Highly recommended for children ages 3-10 - I love the rhyme scheme and the illustrations - buy with confidence

5 Stars
