Classic tale for all childrens libraries. A little boy is surprised and pleased when one of the dinosaurs from the museum agrees to play with him. A day with a dinosaur. Danny's on the town with a real live dinosaur. From the ballpark to the zoo, these two are having one hundred million years of fun -- all in one day! Danny goes to the museum where his wish comes true - a friendly dinosaur comes to life and spends the day playing with him. As the dinosaur says, after one hundred million years, it's good to play outside! The two have a monstrously good time eating ice cream, going to a ball game, and playing hide-and-seek with Danny's friends. When the day comes to an end, the dinosaur must return to the museum, even though Danny wants to keep him as a pet. After all, the museum needs him, and, Danny realizes, the dinosaur probably wouldn't fit in his house!
Beautiful gift book for your Child's library.
Written in 1958, written in a "Dick and Jane" style, for kids up to about age 7, after that, they would probably appreciate a more informative dinosaur book.
The dinosaur decides to leave the museum for the day and pursue a life of summer fun for one day with Danny. Everyone lives happily ever after, even if the dino has to return to the museum at the end of the day, and Danny no longer has his pet.
