How to Catch a Daddysaurus

Sourcebooks/Wonderland. (How to Catch). Apr. 2023. 40p. Tr $10.99. ISBN 9781728266183.
PreS-Gr 2–A tale of traps, rhymes, and holiday cheer for Father’s Day, as part of the ongoing “How to Catch” series. A group of kids is trying to catch a Daddysaurus, without much luck. With each new trap they set, the kids talk about what a Daddysaurus does for them and how much they love him. The story is formulaic; with each trap, the kids describe some awesome thing about the Daddysaurus with simple vocabulary and basic rhymes. Illustrations work well with the text, helping to make the story clearer at points as they effectively show the journey of the kids trying to build a successful Daddysaurus trap. The story also encourages positive team building values, as it shows the children working together to achieve their goal. Eagle-eyed readers may see the hidden Daddysaurus in the background of each trap.
VERDICT A great Father’s Day story for those who want to talk about their dads and how much they mean to them.
