Child Care Magazine Review How to Grow a Dinosaur

The story provides lots of opportunity for open-ended discussion with beautiful clear illustrations, and a chance for the child to really "participate" in the story.  We really enjoyed this story - I read it to a group of three children aged three. 

By the time we had read it three times, the children knew exactly where to roar!  The choice of a back garden for developing children's sense of curiosity was just wonderful, as was the theme of "planting"... The clear and colourful illustrations by Ed Eaves hit every spot for a child's imagination, and by the end of the story, one of my little boys asked: "Can we plant seeds like Albie did?"
