I really like the sibling relationship in it, Sammy is such a patient and good friend to Boo. Her first published in 1962 and since then she has published regularly. She began her writing career five years after her graduation by publishing short magazine articles. It is a nice introduction to chapter books, though it reads a little easier than I expected, like a level 3 reader book but has the look of a regular chapter book, I am finding that is important to young readers, to feel like they are getting out of kid books. And it felt a bit disjointed in places for example, the transition between Mom cracking an egg and Dad saying that he heard a noise like that just didn't flow smoothly and it took me a few times reading it through to get what was going on.

The successful balance between fantasy and realism creates a satisfying chapter-book selection. The author has written a short chapter book which will appeal to young children. Summary An early chapter book from Newbery Medal winner Betsy Byars When Boo brings home a dinosaur that only she can see, her brother Sammy, doesn't want to encourage her antics. And it might have worked well as a real beginning reader, but the text is too complicated to fit on those shelves. It is happiness encapsulated in forty-five pages, and sandwiched between two covers. Her brother, Sammy, is not--but he is still willing to help her after the egg hatches into a lovable baby dinosaur.
