In Bronto & the Pterodactyl Eggs, first-time author and illustrator Charlotte Vivian Rodenberg brings to us a heartwarming tale of one lone Apatosaurus who must protect a nest of tiny pterodactyls from the dangers of the Jurassic. Through breathtaking watercolor and ink paintings, and a language for all ages, we are carried to a world of unexpected joy as we discover Bronto, his heart as big and warm as the afternoon sun, and four of the world’s newest dino-fledglings!
Bronto and the Pterodactyl Eggs
What Left Me Wanting More: The ending wasn't as heartwarming as I'd hoped. I don't think it will necessarily stop anyone from enjoying the book, but at the end the baby dinosaurs aren't reunited with either their missing mother or the bronto who took care of them so well. They do the proverbial "fly off into the sunset" and it works. I just wanted a little happier ending. :)
Overall, this is a heartwarming, lovely story about the value of kindness and about doing the right thing.
