The illustration on each page are really great! It really shows interaction between the dinosaurs with their pets.

While for the beginner readers, this book has simple words that will enrich their vocabulary, especially in terms of having pets.
There are totals 18 type of dinosaurs in this book so children could also learn about dinosaurs and their appearances. My eldest son (4,5 years old) really love this book and often to read the dinosaurs name over and over again since they are a little bit difficult to pronounce.
I got this book from my eldest son’s school library. And since he is now able to read aloud by himself, I was just sitting next to him holding the book and let him read the book.
