If I Had A Raptor
Our heroine can't think of anything better than bringing home a baby raptor --all teensy and tiny, fluffy and funny. It would cuddle and play, stalk birds and dust bunnies, and curl up on laps. In short, it would be the perfect pet! Readers may notice striking similarities between the raptor's behavior and that of a more common house pet. But whether their first love is dinosaurs or kittens, little people with big imaginations will definitely warm to this perfect picture book.

My 3.5yo daughter and 1.5yo son think this book is hilarious. It's fun to read aloud, and the sarcasm makes it entertaining for adults, too. Adorable pictures!

Lots of kids would agree with the adorable, poofy-pigtailed heroine of this book when she declares that having a dinosaur for a pet would be "the best thing ever." The imaginative little girl daydreams about how she'd pluck a fluffy blue baby dino out of a box labelled "Free Raptors," and how she and "Dinah" would be the best of friends, no matter how big Dinah grew (or how early the nocturnal raptor woke her up).
