Rawr!

Rawr! by Todd H. Doodler (Scholastic Inc)
HB RRP $14.99
ISBN 978-0-545-51118-6
Reviewed by Jenny Heslop

Being a dinosaur is tough. Dinosaurs can be too big for the school bus, too big for hide-and-seek and are often scary without meaning to be. But there are advantages to being big. And Rawr! is really just a dinosaurs way of saying hello.

Rawr! is especially for the very young dinosaur lovers. Its thick strong pages will survive many a toddler and the soft dinosaur on the front of this hard cover book will be a hit with little fingers. The bright, eye-catching pictures are very cute and attractive for the young. They also reinforce simple concepts, such as a big dinosaur not being good at hide-and-seek.

This story is also about not quite fitting in, and scary stuff that isn’t perhaps quite so frightening after all. Good things for children to be learning, even from a young age.
