Summary
A little girl is shopping in a grocery store when--surprise!--she meets a dinosaur. Don't worry. The dinosaur is very friendly. She's polite, too. In this funny story, told in lilting read-aloud rhyme, the girl has numerous opportunities to be helpful to the clumsy shopping dino and demonstrate when to say "thank you," "excuse me," "I'm sorry," "You're welcome," and other niceties of life. Tim Bowers's whimsical illustrations bring an extra dimension of fun to Judy Sierra's hilarious picture book fantasy. Altogether, Suppose You Meet a Dinosaur is an entertaining and painless way to show preschoolers why basic manners are a good thing to have.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "What better way to introduce kids to manners than with a giant, clumsy dinosaur? The setting (improbable though it may seem) is a grocery store, at which a little girl encounters a green, pink-bespectacled tyrannosaurus. A series of events occurs in which the two characters are required to be polite to each other: Your shopping cart begins to spin. / It dings the dino on the shin. / She roars a terrifying roar. / What do you tell the dinosaur? You tell her, I'm sorry, of course. Other incidents include wanting to edge past the dino to use the bathroom, upsetting a stack of apples, shortage of change at checkout to buy butter brickle, and more, with each response ( Excuse me, Thank you, etc.) drawn in big, bold letters. The comic illustrations have fun with the dinosaur's extreme size, using an exaggerated perspective so that she barely fits within the trim. This amusing, rhyming romp is an effective and fun lesson delivered in a memorably prehistoric fashion.--Cummins, Julie Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Sierra and Bowers team up for a slightly different take on the dinosaurs plus manners theme that has been well covered by the How Do Dinosaurs... series. There's no bad behavior on display in this outing: when a small girl meets a T-Rex who's shopping at the grocery store, the girl models the polite way to interact with others, even in unexpected circumstances. "Your shopping cart begins to spin./ It dings the dino on the shin./ She roars a terrifying roar./ What do you tell the dinosaur?" The correct responses to this and other scenarios appear in large speech bubbles. There's lots of physical comedy on display in Bowers's acrylic paintings-the dinosaur drives away in a tiny pink car better suited for Barbie-which, along with Sierra's characteristically sturdy verse, helps the gentle message about manners go down smoothly.
