Danny and the Dinosaur: School Days by Syd Hoff- ADVISABLE

Hoff, Syd. Danny and the Dinosaur: School Days, PICTURE BOOK. HarperCollins, 2017. $16.99.

The dinosaur really wants to go to school and see what it’s all about. He knows that Danny loves school. When he gets there, he learns his ABC’s and the dinosaur helps Danny’s class learn about measurements (the children measure the dinosaur’s limbs) and about history (the dinosaur tells the class about what life was like 100 million years ago). All in all, it’s an exciting day for both the dinosaur and the kids in Danny’s class.

This is a cute easy reader companion book to Danny and The Dinosaur. Because it’s an easy reader, it’s more of a listing of the things the children and the dinosaur do together during the day, not really a story, which does drag a little and make for a little less excitement.
