grandma's birthday give-away - Down at the Dino Wash Deluxe!

I have grandsons - Josiah is 4 1/2 and Caleb is almost 2 - so dinos showing up and rooaarrring is something which happens at this grandma's house from time-to-time when these two sweet boys are here! So, when I was given the opportunity by Sterling Publishing to review - and give-away - one of their new books about dinos, well . . . I had to say "yes"!!!

Down at the Dino Wash Deluxe 
Author - Tim Myers
Illustrator - Macky Pamintuan
Publisher - Sterling Children's Books
Ages 4+

Favorite Features - 
  • I Love the story - what could possibly be more fun than a Dino Wash??? When we read this story, Josiah said, "If dinos really were still alive, I'd LOVE to be able to run a dino wash!!!! It would be SO much fun - as long as the T-Rex didn't eat me!!!" He is absolutely right about that!!!
  • I love the artwork - lots of color and fun illustrations make this book very enjoyable - especially for young boys . . . and their grandma!!!
  • I love the opportunity this book gives you to talk with your grandchildren about not pre-judging others because they can be different than you might think. Plus, when someone acts "grumpy" maybe they are actually afraid of something . . . and you might be able to help them!
  • Fun dino-facts in the back of the book are sure to be enjoyed by kids!
  • Children will have fun identifying the different dinos which come to the wash for a good scrub so they are "soaped and squeaky clean"!
I love the story, illustrations and message to Down at the Dino Wash Deluxe - it is so much fun to read to young boys! My grandsons loved the illustrations of the dinos - and of course they had to add lots of "roaring" as we read . . . what else would you do when reading a story about dinos???!!! This is a book which is sure to get a lot of "read-time" and as I mentioned above, I am delighted for the opportunity to give one away!
