Book Review: Candy and the Cankersaur by Jason Sandberg

This is the sweet and funny tale of a young girl named Candy and her Cankersaurus Rex! Candy receives a dinosaur as a gift and is determined
to train him to be a good pet. This playful homage to Syd Hoff will make all dinosaur-crazy boys and girls happy! Enjoy!

Age Group: Children's

This was such a sweet book!  I read it quickly (as it is a children's picture book) and when I finished, thought, "what's not to love?".  Candy and the Cankersaur has great illustrations, a good storyline, and there is a perfect moral to the story.  The author recommends it for the following age groups: as a bedtime story for ages 3-6, and as a read-alone picture book, ages 6-9.

My review copy was a PDF, so I sat Kaitlyn (my 2-year old) in my lap to read the story to her.  There were too many words for her to understand everything, so I shortened some of the story while reading it aloud, but she loved the illustrations and the story kept her interest (which is saying a lot, as she is usually resistant to new books at first).  

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a new picture book.  Something about it made me feel nostalgic, maybe it's the illustrations, but I really enjoyed it and would definitely read Jason Sandberg again.
