"A young boy's wishful thinking becomes a smooth piece of nonfiction, charmingly packed with facts."--Publishers Weekly
"An appealing combination of fantasy and reality".--Kirkus Reviews
A young boy imagines what it was like long ago when dinosaurs lived in his own backyard. The story combines the little boy's charming imagination with early concepts of science and history to create a wonderful tale. The Dinosaur Who Lived in My Backyard is a great pick for classroom story time.
