I’ve written before about how I loved anything dinosaur related when I was younger, and I am sure that it will be an area we look at in more detail when Mr D and Miss E are older. I love anything dinosaur related and this book, T-Veg The Tale of a Carrot Crunching Dinosaur is no exception.
There is something quite universal about dinosaurs that always seem to grab a child’s attention and Mr D loves this book. Miss E is also quite engaged with this book. It’s also a story that is easy to read as it rhymes so it’s great fun to read aloud to the children – rhyming books always seem to keep Miss E engaged and Mr D seems to be able to remember the words quickly with rhyming books too.
The story follows Reginald who is a T-Rex; he is the same as any normal T-Rex apart from her would much rather eat carrot than steak. It’s a lovely funny story that conveys the message that it is OK to be different.
It’s a very vividly illustrated book and it’s unlike any other on our bookshelf. The use of bright colours is really effective in helping this book stand out from the crowd.
