Product Description

Book Description

Spending the night away from home can be a daunting prospect and Dinosaur is so anxious that he invents many reasons as to why he can’t go: his family will miss him, he won’t have his toothbrush or his clean pyjamas, and he can’t possibly sleep without his teddy! But his little boy helps Dinosaur overcome his fears, and together they discover just how much fun a sleepover can be.

Format: Paperback
In a world where children are worried about different things, its quite rare for an author to present the young reader with an offering that allows them to learn about what to expect prior to the event. Here, we see a sleepover where things are explained to a dinosaur by his owner and backed up with some really beautiful artwork. Its quirky, it's fun but above all it will be a story that will endear itself to young readers and adults alike. Great stuff.

My 3 1/2 year old absolutely loves this book. She's had us read it to her every night for the last two weeks, except last night when she read it to herself.

I love that the dinasour is the one that is nervous about going somewhere for the night and the little boy reassures him that everything will be alright. When I read the dinasour's words, I say it in a scared/worried/anxious voice so my daughter can see that we all feel this way sometimes. Then I read the boy's remarks as light and reassuring, at some bits with humour or laughter in my voice.

She has really taken to this book and the illustrations are beautiful. She does actions as I'm reading this book, like pointing to her sparkly white teeth, and she loves reading the note on the refrigerator. I think this empowers her to feel more secure that my husband and myself will always be there to pick her up from nanny's or a friend's house when she's old enough to stay overnight.
