You Can't Take the Dinosaur Home With You by Mary Esparza-Vela

On a distant planet, far, far away, lived three young space tots named Kyzzie, the older sister, Sweetz, her middle brother, and Hunee, the baby.

So begins the new children's picture book You Can't Take the Dinosaur Home by Mary Esparza-Vela. The book is published by Guardian Angel Publishing. 

 Even on a different planet in an unknown galaxy, parental and sibling problems are surprisingly the same as here on earth.

Sister and brother are plagued by their baby brother, but he "gave them a hard time.  He liked to wander off on his own and throw temper tantrums when he didn’t get his way."

 If this sounds familiar to you, it's not surprising. Little ones being what they are, cause the same problems whichever planet they inhabit!

To compound things, enter a dinosaur. All manner of problems occur, with baby brother right in the middle of it. 

A darling story, this would be terrific for all your junior space cadets out there.  It is a whimsical tale of life set in outer space but with all the elements of home and family.  

The characters are offered as dolls as well, a great addition to your kids' space needs!
