Advent Day 8

Harry and the Dinosaurs Make a Christmas Wish

A few years ago John went through a dinosaur phase. During that time we discovered this  series of books by Ian Whybrow about Harry and his bucketful of dinosaurs. The dinosaurs are alive to Harry although appear to everyone else as just toys. The books are simple and sweet (and the one about Harry and the Dinosaurs going to the dentist was great in helping with John’s first dentist visit). The books have also been made into a TV show and there are new books “from the TV show”. The original books are much better, in my opinion.

In this Christmas book in the series, the dinosaurs (and Harry) wish for  a baby duckling for Christmas but know they might not get one because there isn’t room for one at their house. In the end they get a baby pterodactyl which they decide is even better than a duckling. This is one of those Christmas books that obviously has nothing really to do with Christmas but it’s a sweet read that most kids will enjoy, and will be especially treasured if you have a dinosaur lover.
