Dinopotamus was watching the children playing tag and he also played tag with them. He kicked the ball when they kicked the ball. He could not climb trees like them because Dinopotamus did not have thumbs, which made it impossible to grab the branches. He took the stairs instead and he even followed the children to school. Dinopotamus liked to play the games the children played but the children were a bit curious and afraid. They ran through the door when the school bell rang but Dinopotamus was too big to fit in through the door. He liked to do everything the children did. Let us read this story to find out what Dinopotamus does in the classroom along with the other children.

Dinopotamus Goes to School by Lois Wickstrom is a beautiful story about friendship and being different. The crayon sketches are bright and they make the story colorful and lively. Dinopotamus is adorable and children will love him. Wouldn’t it be fun having something like that in your classroom to make the school day fun and entertaining? The message of being different and being comfortable with that runs through the plot in a very subtle way. It is a good book for read aloud and storytelling sessions in classrooms because of its message, and many children will be encouraged to mix with their fellow students despite their differences. It is a good bedtime storytelling book and parents and grandparents can read it out to their kids and grandkids along with motivating them to accept their differences and enjoy learning.
