How to Look After Your Dinosaur Review

Featured Books for 3+ readers Featured Books for 5+ readers

An unusual pet leads to all sorts of excitement and fun for a little boy and his dog in this charming picture book by Jason Cockroft. Children will love the idea of having a dinosaur to look after, and in a range of beautifully observed and illustrated domestic scenes, we see a little boy coping with breakfast, a trip to the park, bath and bedtime. New parents will understand exactly how the little boy feels, and his struggle to keep his dinosaur happy and clean will resonate with anyone who’s spent a day caring for a toddler. This fun story is perfect for sharing. ~ Andrea Reece

The Editor at Nosy Crow says:   “I love dinosaurs and this book is perfectly pitched for dino-mad preschoolers. The wry humour is perfectly understated and there’s a brilliant counterpoint between words and images that children AND parents will love.”
