Book Review: Dinosaur’s Binkit

I have easily become a huge fan of Sandra Boynton.  Her books are just plain fun and this one is no exception.    Little Lucy still adores books that she can interact with.  This board book is full of textures and flaps to lift to keep her busy and entertained.  It is time for Dinosaur to settle down for sleep but all Dinosaur can think about is finding the elusive “binkit”.  Little ones with a lovey of their own are sure to relate to Dinosaur’s search.

Book Review: Lulu and the Brontosaurus

Lulu is a very spoiled little girl who always gets what she wants.  “Tons of candy.  Tons of toys.  Tons of watching tons of cartoons on TV.”  Until one day when Lulu decides that she wants a brontosaurus for her birthday.  When her parents finally refuse her, Lulu packs a suitcase full of things like pickle sandwiches and heads into the forest to find that brontosaurus.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Lulu’s adventure and all that she learns along the way.  The ending has a few fun surprises to delight young readers and whimsical illustrations to enjoy along the way.  Written by Judith Viorst, a beloved children’s author, who has written other outstanding books like “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”.
