From the Publisher:
Danny spends an entire day with his newly-found friend--a dinosaur.
Danny loves dinosaurs. When he sees one at the museun and says, "It would be nice to play with a dinosaur," a voice answers, "And I think it would be nice to play with you." So begins Dannys and the dinosaur's wonderful adventure together!
But a dinosaur is no ordinary playmate. Even the most everyday activities become extraordinary, like finding a big-enough place to hide a dinosaur in a game of hide-and-seek, and keeping him from knocking over houses with his long tail. But Danny can teach a old dinosaur new tricks. It's the most fun this dinosaur has had in a hundred million years!
Originally published as An I Can Read Book over 40 years ago, this classic story is perfect for reading together.
Danny's out on the town with a real live dinosaur. And whether they're eating ice cream or playing hide-and-seek, these two are having one hundred million years of fun--all in one day.
Syd Hoff's classic I Can Read book is still tremendously popular decades after it was first published in 1958. Flaxen-haired Danny's trip to a museum finds him befriending an enormous dinosaur who comes to life and spends all day playing with him. Eating ice cream, watching baseball, and playing hide-and-seek, turn out to be the best dinosaur-related activities. With full-color illustrations.
