The Rebirth of Dino Earth (Children's Book Review)

Kindle Edition Available on Amazon for $1.99
Source

Another 5-star Pat Hatt book has been released with The Rebirth of Dino Earth. The book draws you in immediately with its cute, colorful illustrations and non-stop action story line.  Watch as a batch of aliens try to re-capture a group of (friendly-drawn) dinosaurs and return them to the zoo where they have previously been locked away for alien display.

The smallest dinosaur, the one who gets picked on by the bigger, tougher crowd comes in to save his bigger friends who are too large to hide from the menacing aliens determined to take them back to their hometown. Proving that size doesn't matter, and friends are friends to the end, (with the help of a trusted cat) the dino crowd helps teach children a valuable lesson, and leaves them cheering with the twist of fate that beholds the aliens in the end.

We have a good number of the Patt Hatt books in our children's reading collection, and my son loves them all! This one has replaced the one I've always held to be my favorite.  It's cute from start to finish, and teaches its lesson in a fun, very visual way that the little ones are just sure to love!!

You can find this book on Amazon, where the Kindle version is available for $1.99.

You can learn more about Pat Hatt by visiting his very popular blog: It's Rhyme Time. You can also follow him on G+ and/or Twitter, and you can check out the other books he has for sale at the Amazon store.
