Dinosaur Friends by Lois Wickstrom is an imaginative picture book for young children. In the first story, friends Conifer and Spike notice a volcano that is about to erupt. Conifer wants to run away to safety, but Spike has other ideas. Spike suggests that the volcano is just sad and feels a gift would maybe make it feel better. Conifer isn't convinced and tries to talk his friend down before it's too late. But Spike insists on making the volcano a necklace made out of boulders. Knowing there was no way of talking Spike out of his idea, Conifer helps place the boulders around the volcano. Was Spike right about the volcano being sad and will this stop it from erupting? In the second story, the two friends come across a fire and, once again, need to get to safety. They decide they must cross a river, but there's just one tiny problem - Conifer can't swim. How will they resolve the situation they are in and will Conifer's eggs make it out safely?
Dinosaur Friends by Lois Wickstrom was fun to read. The book comprises two simple stories of two friends having different opinions on how to fix problems. This will teach children that everyone's opinions matter, and if used together, can prove useful in solving the problem. The illustrations by the talented Nicolas Milano are adorable and he has done a great job. I recommend this book to any young reader wishing to be both educated and entertained. Keep up the good work, Lois and Nicolas; you work well together!
