We are big fans of Dinosaur Train so when I was invited to participate in a review for Dinosaur Train Books The Buddy & Friends board book, A Surprise for Mom, and Tiny Learns to Fish I jumped to the chance and said of course!
When I received the books my son was delighted. Right away he wanted me to start reading. As the pages turned he would say "That's Buddy...he is a T-Rex and eats meat" and "That triceratops eats plants". I loved seeing him intrigued by the books. So for a whole week (so far) we have had to read the books to him every night before bed. Today I saw him "reading" the book to himself. He had memorized the words! He did such a great job.
