Dinner for Dinos: A Kids Book Review

**Book received for consideration. Post contains affiliate links. All thoughts are 100% my own.
Kids love Dinos!

Okay, I don't know if it's ALL kids, but I remember being intrigued by them when I was a kid (thanks in large part to movies like the original Jurassic Park and Land Before Time). Likewise, my own children have fallen in love with them too. They're fun, they're exciting... they're a timeless!

So, why not use dinos to teach and encourage kids about the things that matter... like eating well! Today, I'm sharing a new children's board book that does just that 'Dinner for Dinos':

Dinner doesn’t have to be a disaster - just ask the dinos! Your kiddos will love this silly story about a rambunctious crew of dinosaurs who are making mealtime extra fun while learning how to grow up healthy and strong by eating all sorts of yummy foods. 
Mealtime can be challenging with little ones, and Dinner for Dinos is a fun, exciting way to show your kids that eating healthy foods to grow big and strong doesn’t have to be yucky or scary. 
“My mom says those who eat good foods Will grow up big and strong. I’m eating all the greens I can To make my tail grow long!”
Children everywhere will love joining goofy Stego, Bronto, Raptor, and Rex as they help make dinner, say their prayers, and clean their plates, making mealtime the best part of the day!

Raise your hand if you have a child who is a picky eater!

I have been lucky with my own children that they eat very well, but it seems like most of my mommy friends experience this with at least one of their own children. It is a common struggle among parents. Try as we may to tell our children to eat their veggies, it goes in one ear and right out the other. Ah, parenting... BUT when we approach it with fun, it's more likely to sink in! That's just what this book does! It uses something that kids love- dinosaurs- and creates a fun story that they can fall in love with. It makes shopping and cooking fun. It makes eating veggies to grow big and strong sound more appealing. It even shows proper mealtime manners in saying their prayers and not burping at the table! As a mom, I appreciate the message. As a kid, my daughter just loved the fun characters, the illustrations and the fabulous rhymes. It's easy to follow and remember. And yes, if you watch closely, there's even a short arm t-rex joke in the illustrations- always a big hit in my home!!

If you have a picky eater who loves dinos... or just a kid who loves dinos, this is an absolute must see! My family loved it, and I'm sure yours will too! 'Dinner for Dinos' is available to purchase now at your favorite Christian book retailers.
