A little dinosaur gets annoyed easily, sometimes for no reason at all! Simple rhymes, cute characters in adorable settings, and a sweet, comforting addition to your child’s nighttime routine. 


How cute! Little dinosaur keeps getting annoyed and angry throughout the day, not realizing that he is being rude and mean to others. I loved how simple the story was, and how easy it was for Mister Chu to understand. He said more than once that the little dinosaur was being grumpy and mean. This book easily shows little ones that it’s not nice to be rude to others. And the artwork . . . adorable! The colors were bright and the expressions on the little dragon’s face were priceless.

While I don’t know if I would make this part of a nighttime routine, it was definitely a fun addition to our afternoon reading 🙂
