This has got to be one of the cutest books for children about dinosaurs I’ve come across!
Down at the Dino Wash Deluxe by Tim Myers is about a boy who has the coolest job ever – he is in charge of washing dinosaurs! He lathers and rinses them, meat-eater or vegetarian. But then he hears some disturbing news…
There’s a T-REX in town! At first the boy is quaking in his boots at the prospect of a possibly disgruntled customer with teeth that size, but then he learns that the T-Rex isn’t as fierce as he pretends to be. In fact, he’s afraid of something, too! Guess what it is?
Getting soap in his eyes! ;-)
This book is definitely a keeper for us. The illustrations are truly gorgeous and the story is delightful! It’s one that I know will be re-read and enjoyed often (by both young and old!).
You can buy Down at the Dino Wash Deluxe from Amazon.com for $8.53 at the time of this posting. It regularly retails for $14.95 for the hardcover.
