The Littlest Dinosaur by Michael Foreman

syndetics-lcI enjoyed reading The Littlest Dinosaur by Michael Foreman.  In this sweet story about a dinosaur who never grew any bigger than a bug, the Littlest Dinosaur learned that he could be brave.  Always afraid that he would be stepped on if he played with the other dinosaurs in the mud, he only watched the fun. He learned that the great big dinosaur never came to play either because he thought of himself as too big and clumsy. When the two of them had to figure out a way to rescue all the others from a sticky situation, they both began to see themselves in a new way–and each other as friends.
