Read All About It (The Kids' Corner): Candy and the Cankersaur

Candy and the Cankersaur by Jason Sandberg

*Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. 


Synopsis from Goodreads: 
"This is the sweet and funny tale of a young girl named Candy and a Cankersaurus Rex! Candy receives a dinosaur as a gift and is determined to train him to be a good pet."

My thoughts:
What an adorable book! My boys absolutely loved it, but that's no surprise, as they love anything about dinosaurs. The basic premise of the story is that Candy's father is very busy with work and she doesn't get to spend as much time with him as she would like. While she has all the latest and greatest toys that money can buy, she is lonely. Her father feels guilty and decides to get her a special present - a pet Dinosaur - to keep her company. Meanwhile, her friend, Chucky, known for his "one-up-manship" becomes jealous of Candy's new companion and that's where things get a little tricky. 

The story itself is great, but what really captured my boys' attention is the illustration. There's artwork on every page and a few sentences to go along with the picture. My 6 year old had no problem reading through the story with me and has wanted to read it every single night since. 

Candy and the Cankersaur is available now on: Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo
