Elijah has been talking to his invisible friend and his mom is wondering who it is. Mom quietly follows Elijah to his room to see what he and his sister Madison are doing. In Elijah and His Invisible Friend (Madison and Elijah Book 1) by Sabrena Bishop and Elijah Bishop, Elijah is talking to his friend, Rex, who is a Tyrannosaurus. He is large, has green skin, and small eyes. His mother warns him that dinosaurs are dangerous. Elijah is confident Rex will not hurt him as they are good friends. They go off together with the dump truck to play and they play for hours. The next day is Elijah’s birthday party and he wants Rex to be there, though he knows his friends will be scared of Rex. His mother agrees on one condition that they hide Rex in the bathroom. Elijah goes to bed dreaming of the next day with Rex.
The concept of an invisible friend will be relatable to many children and they will find this story exciting and captivating. The illustrations are adorable, like Elijah and Rex, and they make the scenes vivid for young readers. It is a good bedtime storybook and parents and grandparents can use this for bedtime storytelling. The fun facts, vocabulary, creation station, and questions at the end of the tale make it fun and interactive to use for classroom read aloud sessions. Storybooks like this are good for children, as they are educational, informative, and fun, and they make learning interesting.
