From the New York Times bestselling illustrator of Battle Bunny comes a laugh-out-loud story of a little sponge dinosaur that keeps growing…and growing…and growing….

Cole is very excited about his new Dino-Gro toy. He can’t wait for it to reach its full size! But when Dino-Gro becomes much larger than intended, Cole goes so far as to put Dino-Gro on a liquid-free diet and an exercise regimen, which don’t seem to make a difference! As Dino-Gro becomes so big that he can’t fit in the house, Cole learns that growing up and getting bigger can have advantages too, even if you’re not a dinosaur.

For fans of Tiny T. Rex and We Don’t Eat Our Classmates, this sweet and hilarious read-aloud is fun for kids to learn the importance of growing up big and strong.

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

What an adorable story! Cole gets a new toy that will grow when it gets wet. He decides to wait until the next day before he puts him in the water. The Dino has a different idea and climbs into a glass of water. He more than doubles in size! When Cole asked what happened, Dino says “wet”. These water incidents keep happening until Dino is too big for the house. Such a wonderfully thought of story that will have every child wishing for their own growing Dino! The illustrations are too cute! You’ll definitely want this book in your home!
