Today I’m sharing a book review with a difference. It hasn’t been reviewed by me, it has been reviewed by Elliotts kinder class!
Elliott was very eager to take this book for show and tell and his kind teacher, Mari-ann, wrote down the thoughts of the 3 and 4 year olds.

Can you tell by the children’s responses that the illustrations really brought this book to life? Isn’t it so adorable how children explain things, it’s what first pops into their head!
But really, in the end, and although the dinosaur and the boy had fun playing video games and trying to play soccer, all the dinosaur really wanted was to be a little boy.
