Candy and the Cankersaur Review + Giveaway (CLOSED)

6:00 PM

Although I do not have any kids, I do enjoy spending time with my cousin's kids. We are really close and I consider myself more of an Aunt than anything else. Sometimes we like to curl up on their bed and read a story. My "nephew" is 6 and my "niece" is 10. After I took a peak at the book I knew it was the perfect reading level for them. So I opened the book on their kindle (yes, they have more technology than I do!) and we started to read.

I found this book to be adorable and charming. The kids kept pointing at the pictures and referencing the book and how they too wished they had a dinosaur. I did, however, have to help them with just a few words and we got off on a tangent about what it means for something to be "extinct". It was fun and also a learning experience. I was one proud Auntie! 

 Candy and the Cankersaur by Jason Sandberg
This is the sweet and funny tale of a young girl named Candy and a Cankersaurus Rex! Candy receives a dinosaur as a gift and is determined to train him to be a good pet.

He has also written a bunch of other fun stories that I will be purchasing for the kiddos!

To describe this book, I feel the author's words sums it up the best:  
"Candy and the Cankersaur" is a picture book about a girl who receives a dinosaur as a gift and her determination to train him to be a good pet.  It's a fun homage to Syd Hoff and will make all dinosaur-crazy boys and girls happy.

  1. Hello, I don't really know of any other books he's written. Although, I have a grandson who loves to be read to so I'm highly interested in children's books that are out of the ordinary. Thank-you for this chance. :)

  2. I'd love to read the New Crown. It sounds like a wonderful book with a female "hero"
