When You Were A Dinosaur: And Other Tales And Mighty Beasts! by Neil Roy McFarlane is an engaging and entertaining book in which young readers are introduced to the lives and habits of some amazing creatures like dinosaurs, lions, gorillas, whales, elephants, polar bears, crocodiles, and eagles. Children will get to change into and live the life of a creature for a day. That way they learn about the workings of the world and discover a new perspective by walking in a creature’s 'shoes' for a day. The adventures are fun and will make children laugh, learn, and be more aware of the animals listed in the book.

The stories are fun, creative, and imaginative and will put a smile on the faces of readers. The book is educational and informative and children will learn interesting facts about many animals. Parents and grandparents will find this book perfect for bedtime story-telling as it is not only creative, but also informative and educational. It is a good book for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Children will learn a lot of new things and the book is also helpful when it comes to enhancing vocabulary. Books like this are good for children to introduce them to new things in an entertaining way and make learning fun and interesting. Being in the 'shoes' of the animals is an innovative and unique concept and children will love going through that experience while reading the book.
