When a young boy discovers that today dinosaurs come with everything, errands with his mom transform from dull to “best day ever.” The illustrations are cute and the story is so much fun. My boys continue to ask me to read it to them over and over and over again – which is awesome because I have fallen in love with the book too.
When Dinosaurs Came With Everything by Elise Broach is a book you are going to want to pick up and try for yourself.
And then maybe when you are done reading When Dinosaurs Came With Everything, you will need to line up all your own dinosaurs to teach them the rules of the house. They won’t mind, it will just mean that they are part of the family too.
**Homeschool Notes: This book encouraged discussions about family rules – the younger boys modeling the rules to their dinosaurs. Talked about what it means to buy a “dozen” of something. Emphasized the importance of everyone helping around the house. Creative writing entailed what it would be like to have a pet dinosaur and what rules they would create.
