The Mine O SaurA group of dinosaurs is playing in the school yard when the Mine o saur arrives He snatches all. Books with a message are the most frightening kind of picture book on the planet They can go real bad real preachy and real ugly real fast Self published authors love `em So too do new parents with unshakable beliefs in bibliotherapy And as a children's librarian it is my job to wade through the lot of them to find the ones that are the best When a parent walks up to you and says I want a picture book about sharing you know that the clock is ticking and that you need to rustle up the goods right uick or they're going to be convinced that you don't know your Kellogg from your Kuskin Well ladies and gentlemen I have excellent news Ms Bardhan uallen I just like writing her name and Mr Clark have leapt above the double threat of lesson rhymes to create a book that pans scans looks great and tells its message in a manner pleasing to eye and ear Plus it's got dinos Everybody likes dinosThere are dinosaurs and then there's the mine o saur When all the other dinos are playing happily in the yard this fellow bursts onto the scene with his signature cry of MINE MINE MINE Of course that makes him late for the school's snack time and when he sees all the other dinos in class chowing down his recklessness comes out and everyone's food is ruined That in turn means cleaning up during recess of course and when he finally comes out and sees the others kids building with blocks well you can guess what happens The end result is one lonely mine o saur and a bunch of fellows who refuse to play with him Seeing the error of his ways he makes amends gives back everything he has taken sans the devoured food thankfully and all is forgiven at the endRhymes that don't scan drive me batty They make the hairs on the back of my neck rise up and scream for mercy With relief I found then that these rhymes scan just fine The author doesn't bend over backwards to force extra syllables into a single sentence Readers won't find themselves reading and rereading passages silently before doing a storytime with this book The hard part has been done for you Now the author DID make a choice to alternate the rhyming sections with non rhyming ones which is risky That move could have backfired big time so it's remarkable that Bardhan uallen pulled it off as well as she did In these sections when the mine o saur sees something he wants the words chant off the litany of his crimes until at long last his desire has been satiated and has waned There's a bit of the old How the Grinch Stole Christmas to the mine o saur's realization that the other dinos don't need toys to be happySometimes a book with dinos will attempt the difficult double duty sueeze They'll have the informative lesson and then bend over backwards to ALSO include factual dino information This is a move that should only be attempted by the most skillful of authorillustrators Jane Yolen and Mark Teague probably have done it the best with their How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight series In those books the names of each individual dino is subtly written on the periphery of his or her character Bardhan uallen could have gone this route as well and in a way she does Dinos

What will it take for the Mine o saur to realize that what he really wants are friends Full col. This book starts off with a group of dinosaurs that are playing at their school with some toys Suddenly they hear MINE MINE MINE and they all know it is the mineosaur The mineosaur always wants to claim that everything is his and he never wants to share He gets in trouble with the teacher a couple of times but he doesn't care as long as he has his stuff The mineosaur then realizes that even when he has so much stuff he is missing something else The cartoon images are filled with vibrant colors that catches the readers attention The mineosaur is a dynamic character as he changes throught the course of the book The book ends with a closed ending I liked this book because it portrays an issue that many children face It is vital for them to learn the importance of sharing
