Squirrels are amazing! But look out, this dinosaur wants to steal the show! Every time the squirrel tries to tell us amazing things about squirrels (There are flying squirrels! The largest squirrels are as big as dogs!) the rude dinosaur barges in.

But the adorable and clever squirrel has lots of tricks to make sure we hear all we want to know (Squirrels use their tails like blankets, and also to communicate!). It's a book for anyone who loves squirrels or dinosaurs, and teaches us that if only we persevere, we will find a way to get our story heard.

Squirrels! This is not a book about Dinosaurs is a snarky fun book giving facts about Squirrels while being interrupted by a dinosaur. This book will appeal to the humor of older elementary children as the dinosaur keeps intruding and the squirrel gets a bit irritated by it and tries different ideas to stop him. This is a unique approach to keeping readers’ attention while they learn about squirrels. Overall, this lighthearted book gives facts and keeps you eagerly turning the page to see if the squirrel can gain the upper hand on the dinosaur.

Squirrels! This is Not a Book about Dinosaurs is a fun, silly book in which a squirrel is trying to teach you about the species yet keeps being inconvenienced by an interrupting dinosaur. Humor is interspersed throughout this book as this dinosaur frustrates the squirrel yet you are also getting a bit of dinosaur facts as he interrupts. 

What I Like: 
This book captures your attention from the first page as the squirrel comes out and introduces the subject of the book. Not too much after that, you are introduced to the very rude and self-obsessed dinosaur who interrupts the story throughout. Children will laugh as the dinosaur continues interrupting the squirrel who is only trying to teach others about his species. This is a great way to show children what interrupting can feel like to others and begin a conversation about how to behave as others are speaking. 

The colors of the book stand out and it's great that the font is included outside of the color so it is easy to read through. The short sentences and different characters' speeches break up the book in a way that captures the audience and holds their attention. 

Final Verdict: 
Squirrels! This is Not a Book about Dinosaurs is a great way to introduce children to animals they see daily. You can read this in a classroom where children might be struggling with interrupting others to begin that conversation with them. All will delight as other animals join the conversation and add their take on squirrels, you will take some fun facts away from this story.
