Editorial Reviews

Gr. 1, younger for reading aloud. This story in the Green Light Reader series is as much a cuddly read-aloud fantasy for young preschoolers as a book for beginning readers. The text is short, with lots of repetition, and the pictures add to the fun about the great big dinosaur who frightens everyone ("They were afraid of his great big claws. They were afraid of his great big feet. But most of all, they were afraid of his great big teeth"). Just one little dinosaur isn't afraid, and when she's caught at last, she gets a hug from her Grandpa dinosaur, who loves her. Like Steig's Pete's a Pizza (1998) and McCourt's I Love You, Stinky Face (1997), this is a book to read and act out with shouts and kisses.
