KIRKUS REVIEW

Little sister Boo will not leave big brother Sammy alone so he can read. Eventually he gives in and reads his book aloud to her and her toy dinosaur. Inspired by her brother’s book, Boo goes out and finds a dinosaur of her own. When her parents humor her and let the dinosaur stay, Boo declares herself “the luckiest girl in the world.” Despite his older brother stature, Sammy almost believes Boo when she tells about the flights she makes, the happy rumbling her imaginary friend makes and the high bed-bounces required for the dinosaur to see Boo in the window. And, when the dinosaur leaves, Sammy is there to comfort his little sister. Frequent warm black-and-white illustrations extend the text and provide ample visual cues in this reassuring tale of sibling love for new readers. (Fiction. 6-9)
