Dinosaur Juniors (2) – Give Peas a Chance
32pp., pbk., RRP $A14.99
The baby dinosaurs are having lots of fun together, but then Nancy is called in for dinner. She’s reluctant to go because she is having so much fun but her dad insists, telling her she can play again when she shows him her clean plate. But alongside the Dino Bites and fluffy rice, which she likes, are peas! And Nancy doesn’t like peas – or anything green for that matter.
But then she hatches a clever plan and it’s not too long before she is able to show her dad an empty plate. But has she outsmarted him?
This is the second in this joyful series for preschoolers that will appeal to them because of the bright pictures, the clever rhyme and Nancy’s clever plan. Many of them will relate to not liking green vegetables and enjoy Nancy’s subterfuge but the ending may well surprise them.
Perfect for little ones who love dinosaurs and for encouraging the belief that reading is lots of fun.
