Pterodactyl Show and Tell
It’s show and tell day! What do you bring? A helmet? A book? A toy dump truck? No, you bring your pterodactyl of course! A third grader decides for show and tell he’s going to bring his pterodactyl, but little does he know this is going to lead to disastrous results. The school day is in upheaval as the pterodactyl manages to make every subject a little more prehistoric; it seems like the students may not make it out of third grade, let alone the day! One of my favorite things about this book was the little hidden “easter eggs” when the class is in reading–pay attention to their book titles! I also loved how the redhead owner doesn’t seem to notice the havoc that his pterodactyl is unleashing in the classroom–it’s all just fun and games! Not only does Pterodactyl Show and Tell rhyme, but it shows us that maybe we are really lucky the dinosaurs are extinct. And I was thrilled to be able to read this book. I look forward to reading more from Thad Krasnesky, but I’m crossing my fingers his stories stay prehistoric!
