Children's Book Review: Santasaurus
Written by: Niamh Sharkey
Published by: Candlewick Press, 2004
Christmas is coming to Dinosaur Town, and Ollie, Molly, and Milo are writing their letters to Santasaurus. Ollie wishes for a dinobot. Molly asks for a dinocycle. All Milo wants is to meet Santasaurus and fly in his sleigh. Later there's Christmas shopping with Momosaurus — "What hustle and bustle and squoosh!" — and plenty of wrapping and decorating on Christmas Eve. But when nighttime comes, will Santasaurus make Ollie's, Molly's, and Milo's wishes come true?
*My son has recently shown an interest in dinosaurs and this looked like a good holiday story featuring them as characters. Milo gets to meet Santasaurus and goes on a sleigh ride with him. The dinosaur family has a great Christmas. This book has bright, colorful illustrations and is a cute Christmas read.
