How to Make Friends with a Plant Eating Dinosaur: My Favorites Are the Herbivores by Andy Williams is a sweet little bedtime story about a small boy who likes plant eating dinosaurs. The boy has this fear that the carnivores might end up eating him too. So every night after his mother reads him a bedtime story about the herbivores, the boy keeps the vegetables he has hidden in a napkin on the windowsill. He shows his dinosaur friends how to eat them and invites them to his bed. The book also conveys the subtle message of teaching children how to get rid of the small fears they have while befriending new people.

The story is cute. Dinosaur stories always fascinate kids. I only wish it had more illustrations because kids love to see bright and colorful pictures. It also has life's lessons like how to eat healthily and make friends, and gives kids details about extinct reptiles like the dinosaurs. The language is simple and elegant. The book is educational and should be kept in schools for read aloud sessions in the libraries as well as classrooms. It is always good to write children's storybooks that have a concept, a message or an educational theme. That is the easiest way to get something across to kids and this book does just that. It has the perfect theme, message and is just the right length for kids to enjoy and comprehend properly. It is storybook that will bring a smile to the faces of young readers.
