This is a charming book to read to a dinosaur loving preschooler, or for an early reader to read with you.
Rory The Dinosaur, Me and My Dad is by Liz Climo and the illustrations by ‘digital magic’, published by Hatchette.
The illustrations are mainly shades of green so that the rainbow and Rory’s swag are very vivid.
This is a simple story where young Rory sets out on an adventure while his dad is quietly reading. Children will love the irony that Rory thinks he is overcoming all obstacles by himself when his dad is shadowing him, protecting him every step of the way. They will also love the fact that Rory makes his favourite sandwich – peanut butter and chocolate chip!
The language is simple, but not condescending.
In the simple story, there is just Rory and his dad who is taking care of him. No preaching about what constitutes a family.
I can’t wait to share this with my granddaughter who is just learning to read.
