Candy and the Cankersaur by Jason Sandberg

Having a pet dinosaur is fascinating. Candy's rich father has no time to spend with her daughter, so he buys her a dinosaur pet, a Cankersaur Rex. Meanwhile, her neighbor, Chucky, is getting jealous over Candy's new possession.
Candy and the Cankersaur is a short and sweet children's story. The colorful, lively illustrations in the book are appealing for children. This book is well-suited as a picture book for children aged 3-9 years. I haven't read a children's fiction for a long time, and this book fascinated me.
I taught in Kindergarten for a brief period and I remember that stories with the mention of dragons and dinosaur always fascinated children. Children are full imagination. In the story, Candy is not frightened by the Rex, instead she's determined to train her new pet. Chucky's getting jealous of Candy's toys is only natural. We are all like that in childhood. Finally, this book has a lesson for children and adults.
