Dear Santasaurus tells the story of a dinosaur named Ernest He writes letters throughout the year to Santasaurus to tell him about all the naughty and nice things he has done He writes him on every holiday For Valentine s Day Ernest sends Santasaurus a card and tells him he didn t think putting a fake spider in his mom s box of chocolates would scare her so much For Thanksgiving he writes a letter listing the things he is grateful for, like only having 1 sister The year progresses and letters are written When it gets closer to Christmas Ernest writes to tell Santasaurus what he wants for Christmas and to remind him that he has done nice things then bad Was Ernest good enough to get the gift he wanted This book has an interesting format to tell the story The author choose to use letters to create a timeline and tell the story The font used in the letters is mea Ernest B Spinosaurus isn t wasting any time telling Santasaurus what he wants for Christmas he writes his first letter to Santasaurus on the first of January and continues to write throughout the year And he s determined to stay on Santasaurus Nice List Through Ernest s letters, at once hopeful and cheeky, we get to know this young dinosaur, about his friend Ty, his little sister Amber, and his desire for a Jurassic Turbo Scooter X9 He wants to stay on Santasaurus nice list, and keeps up a steady stream of letters partly to explain away his naughtiness Ernest may be a dinosaur, but really he s a typical young boy that children and their parents will be able to relate to easily Coupled with Jef Kaminsky s cartoon like illustrations, this book reminded me a lot of children s television shows Granted, the ones I ve started letting my two year old watch yes, it s come to that, there s only so long you can hold out are predominately British and a mix of fancy 3D CGI and old style animation a la Peppa Pig, but they all tend to have one thing in common using animals like pigs or bees or mythological creatures like fairies or elves or fictional characters like robots or aliens t Dear Santasaurus by Stacy McAnulty is unlike any dinosaur book or santa book you re likely to read.Dear Santasaurus is a funny story about Ernest B Spinosaurus, a young dinosaur who starts early in the year writing letters to Santasaurus In fact, January 1 his first note is a thank you for his Christmas present even though he already broke it Every month he writes to Santasaurus, sometimes twice, and in December just so he can try to be on the nice list The notes also serve as his wish list which changes and grows throughout the year In March, what starts out as a scooter, by April has increased to a Jurassic Turbo Scooter x9 In May is it a sea serpent blue Jurassic Turbo Scooter x9 and a raging raptor action figure In June, it is now a Jurassic Turbo Scooter x9 with a working headlight, and never mind the raging raptor action figure he now wants tar pit goo Amusingly for the reader, Ernest B Spinosaurus s request gets elaborate almost every month, and the bold creative illustrations by Jef Kaminsky add to the humour.On Christmas Eve Ernest leaves a note for Santasaurus, just to remind him of the long list of features he wants his scooter to have The description is so detailed and changed it s quite funny.The illustrations by Jef Kaminsky are very well suited to the story, as Ernest B Spinosaurus tries to do n As the older sister of a younger brother with very vivid memories of Christmases past not to mention just day to day boy behavior , this book could not possibly have rung true Every Single Part Because of that, I think it s just a touch possible that parents caregivers will get the biggest laughs out of this collection of letters from a dinosaur to Santasaurus providing behavioral updates excuses throughout the Dear Santasaurus is a perfect winter holiday read or perfect for a bedtime story as Christmas is approaching Often times when children are talking to Santa in books it is merely being narrated, but the interesting point of view in this story was directly from the child s letters When reading this book with a child it will be very rela Ernest B Spinosaurus sends a monthly letter to Santa keeping up the communication about what he wants for Christmas it changes frequently and why he should still be on the nice list even though he put a fake spider in Mom s chocolate box on Valentine This little dinosaur is sure to write to santasaurus everyday throughout the whole year He includes a little bit of the good and a little bit of the bad, but he feels his niceness outweighs the badness My son thought the book was very funny, especially because he wanted this scooter but kept
