Book review: How to Grow a Dinosaur, by Jill Esbaum, illustrated by Mike Boldt

Esbaum, Jill. How to Grow a Dinosaur. Illustrated by Mike Boldt. Dial Books for Young Readers, 2018. Unpaged. $17.99. ISBN 9780399539107. Ages 2-5. P7Q7.

This is a book that will resonate with children who are about to have a baby sister or brother. It is basically a guide book for the older dinosaur sibling- how to deal with the wait, and about learning what babies can and can’t do in a humorous way. The colorful, lively illustrations are pleasing to the eye, and help communicate the joys and frustrations of having a younger sibling.

VERDICT: Parents with young children will like this book as a bedtime story or read aloud.
