Description

Dad takes Dave to the museum to look at dinosaurs. Dad is convinced that he knows all there is to know about these mighty beasts. And if nothing else he knows that they are most definitely dead. But Dave isn't quite so sure... This is a highly original must-read story that rivals Not Now, Bernard in the way it teaches parents that key lesson: listen to your kids!show more

Our customer reviews

I bought this book to share with my 3-4years Kindy group while they were learning all about dinosaurs. After a trip to the museum to see a dinosaur exhibit, I began reading this to them and they loved it! Especially the page where the T-Rex roars (the kids roar so loud!). Great book, would recommend for this age group and above.show more
