A little boy and his Oma are out taking their dog for a walk and the boy finds something behind a fallen tree. An egg! He thinks it's a dinosaur, but Oma says those are supposed to be extinct. The boy walks up to get a closer look and the egg has started to crack open. It is a dinosaur! But why is the baby all alone? Where is its mommy? The boy asks if he can take the dinosaur home until its mom comes. Oma says they should ask Pop, so they take the dinosaur home and Pop decide they can keep it until they find its mom. The boy names the dinosaur Ptero and they love to play. Enjoy reading about the boy and his dinosaur friend as they forge a friendship that will last a lifetime.
Rachelle Jones Smith's Ptero and I is a wonderful children's story about a young boy and his Oma who make a strange discovery while on a walk. The story is beautifully illustrated by Mykhailo Ridkous. The pictures beautifully portray the different moods of the story. There were moments when I laughed at the comical facial expressions of the characters. Children are sure to enjoy this beautifully written story. The story language is written in a rhyme scheme that is catchy for young readers and listeners. A wonderfully imaginative tale that children are sure to enjoy, Rachelle Jones Smith's Ptero and I is definitely a book worth adding to your child's library.
