Book Description

2 Mar 2009
A tiny dinosaur is born to a family of rather huge dinosaurs and everyone is mystified about why it is so different. As the littlest dinosaur grows, it feels left out and at odds with the world of its huge family, until one day its very size is the thing that rescues them all. A charming tale featuring every toddler's favourite - dinosaurs - with a sweetly told message about being happy being yourself.

Product Description


The Littlest Dinosaur by Michael Foreman
`It is the illustrations − as always with this author / illustrator − that make the book special. The colours glow and shimmer, and the round, cuddly shapes of the dinosaurs are not the least bit threatening. If you've never seen a dinosaur smile, you are in for a treat!'
-- Books for Keeps

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet simple story 14 July 2014
By zlouise
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Littlest Dinosaur is a positive story with calm yet colourful illustrations. Nursery (aged 3-4) children responded really well to it, and it provides a good stimulus for discussions about friendship, feelings and confidence. The text flows well and has a soothing rhythm for reading aloud. Children may recognise the dinosaurs but no technical terms are used or knowledge needed. The use of speech marks and bold text can also be discussed with older children. I also liked that the little dinosaur is pink (in this book) but male as it subtly challenges stereotypes.

Lovely story for my 4 year old nephew and for my class of 7 year olds studying Michael Foreman. Great illustrations.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lovely little story, my two year old loves it! Also teaches them that freinds come in all shapes and sizes so don't judge a book by its cover! Also its a nice relaxed book to read at bedtime. I really recommend it.
