My Thoughts

Dina has invited several of her friends to Tea Time.  She readies herself for the get together and waits anxiously for her guest.  On the hour for several hours a guest would arrive with a special treat for Tea Time. 

She could not seem to shake the feeling that something was missing.  Already they had Dina's Cherry-Filled Cupcakes, Mastodon Bone Scones, Choco-Chip Pteranodon Cookies,  Sweet Saltopus Eclairs, Triceratops' Fingers (Lady Fingers) and Stegosaurus Brownies topped with dates.   

What else could they possibly need for Tea Time?  Who is missing from the party?   Then there is a knock at the door and guess what they brought for Tea Time?

The author is truly gifted with rhyming tales to be told.  It gives the book a more sing-song feel of fun and laughter as we read-along.  This is a special rhyming tale of not just friends but dependable friends without prejudice or discrimination of one another and their differences.  

The illustrations of the many different characters left no guessing as to what kind of dinosaur was arriving to attend Dina's Tea Time.  They were dressed gaily and appropriately for such a special occasion.

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

I received a free copy of this book for review from the author.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  It is my own opinion.
