Book Review of the Impatient Dinosaur by Sarah Read


Why is waiting so hard for dinosaurs? The Little Dino has no patience. He wants what he wants when he wants it. If his parents say, "in a minute," he reacts as if they have said "in a year". This cute and funny story help kids discover that some things are worth the wait.


  • It is OK to be frustrated when you have to wait

  • Learn how to recognize the needs of others

  • Helping your child learn self-control and practice waiting

  • Making choices and understand consequences

  • Waiting can also be a lot of fun

Her own kids helped to create stories by sharing their ideas about the characters and ways they like to express and cope with all the emotions and feelings.

Eve’s Book Review


The artwork is very cute and appealing to the age group this book was written for – ages 3 to 5. The story line is useful as well in helping children to deal with understanding having to wait for things. The language is simple as well aiding in the understanding of a child listening to the story.


All in all, I recommend this book to parents.

About the Reviewer, Eve Culley





Story-telling is as much a part of me as breathing is to my body. I have found that I have to tell stories, put them on paper to make room for the other stories that are building and will need to be told soon.


So, enjoy the ride. Stripe, the Sheriff, and even Rooster Cogburn have a lot of fun they want to share with you.
