It’s fun to have dinosaurs at your birthday party, but be careful what you ask them to do! Decorating, wrapping gifts, baking birthday cakes, and blowing up balloons can get pretty chaotic. Some of these beasts just don’t have the necessary skills for a job well done.

In Don’t Ask a Dinosaur, the results of these party preparations are shown with hilarious effect. Along with reading a giggle-worthy script of messes and mistakes, kids will see various dinosaurs, matching their names to the illustrations. A glossary describing each one is also provided at the end of the story.

Dinosaurs are fascinating creatures, and kids will love reading these unusual names as they laugh at their comical actions. I highly recommend Don’t Ask a Dinosaur.
