Groovy Joe: Ice Cream and Dinosaurs by Eric Litwin- OPTIONAL

Litwin, Eric. Groovy Joe: Ice Cream and Dinosaurs, PICTURE BOOK. Orchard Books, 2016. Groovy Joe has just bought himself some delicious doggy ice cream. He eats it up and starts singing its praises, when in barges a dinosaur. Groovy Joe happily shares his ice cream. Two more dinosaurs eventually show up and Joe shares with them too. Ice cream doesn’t last forever and the dinosaurs aren’t too happy with Joe. He sings them some more songs and they dance together, happy that they’ve shared.This looks to be a continuation of a Groovy Joe story. I did like how the dinosaurs roared their way in and you expect them to be angry, but they really just want ice cream instead. I didn’t love the ending because I thought it was too abrupt. It just didn’t wrap up as well as I would have liked. PRE-K, EL (K-3)- OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian.
