Here is another great childhood book. It is back in print. I read this book as a kid and later read it orally to my 5th grade class when I was teaching. Yes, it has a talking dinosaur but that isn’t the only reason I like it. Two kids find the dino living in a canyon on their ranch. The interplay between the kids and the dinosaur is great. The story is entertaining. It kept my 5th grade class memorized. If you have a child that wants to believe, this is a great story for them.
