Goodreads Synopsis:
This is the sweet and funny tale of a young girl named Candy and a Cankersaurus Rex! Candy receives a dinosaur as a gift and is determined to train him to be a good pet.
Review: Candy and the Cankersaur is an adorable book about a girl whose father works a lot and to keep her company gives her a dinosaur to play with. The pictures are vibrant and bright and the story is applicable to ages 3-9. The story begins by telling us about Candy and her father, then the arrival of her dinosaur and her attempts at training him.

Candy is a courageous little girl, playing with a dinosaur and trying to teach him not to bite. Which I feel is an important lesson for many children in this age group. There are times when biting is unacceptable and only in extreme circumstances may it be allowed.

The book was short and simple and the author explains that it can be a picture book or a read-alone book for the age group. I enjoyed the story and believe young children will enjoy it as well.

It speaks to their imagination with the possibility of owning a dinosaur but also to moral standards and understanding people and situations. It was a very interesting book.
