Unwrapping Some Wonderful Illustrations
I really like the books in this series. Kids love dinosaurs and this heartwarming story will teach them a very valuable life lesson... when you make others happy that makes you happy too.
A baby Spinosaurus while gathering red berries is spotted by a hungry tyrannosaurus and becomes the snack target. Luckily just when the baby is about to be eaten an earthquake erupts causing the island where the two are living to break away. It heads for the middle of the ocean. Stranded together the two get to know each other.
Tyrannosarus learns that the baby Spinosaurus was gathering the red berries for his mother who is gravely ill. He hoped that the berries would have healing power for her. The baby compliments the big guy and catches fish for him to eat causing the Tyrannosuarus to soften his heart and befriend the little guy.
The story can spark conversations about bullying, acceptance, tolerance, kindness and friendship. Miyanishi's powerful story unveils the redemptive power of kind words, empathy, friendship and self-sacrifice.
The illusrations are unique and vibrant and the story will remain in reader's hearts long after the last page has been read. I highly recommend this book.
