This story time favorite is a near-perfect combination of voice, humor, and kid-favorite subject. You can't go wrong with a funny dinosaur book, and this one is as fun to read as it is to listen to.
The enthusiastic young narrator tells the story: when mother and son take their usually humdrum errand day, boredom turns to adventure as, yes, dinosaurs come with everything. The doughnut shop clerk runs to get the first dinosaur. Must be a toy, thinks mom. But the clerk comes back with a living, breathing, full-size triceratops.
"Mom!" the boy yells. Mom isn't quite as excited.
As they make their usual stops (skipping the store that's giving out T. Rexes) they collect more dinosaurs, over of Mom's protests. But what will they do with them when they go home?
When Dinosaurs Came with Everything takes its premise and runs with it; kids can enjoy the dinosaur fantasy, and adults can sympathize with his mom's reaction. In the end, though, this is dinosaur fun for everyone.
