Rory the Dinosaur: Me and My Dad

In honor of Father’s Day this weekend, I thought I’d highlight one of our latest picture books about dads. Rory the Dinosaur: Me and My Dad, by Liz Climo, is an adorable story about an energetic little dinosaur named Rory. Rory and his dad live on an island and do lots of fun things together, like fishing and looking for seashells.

One day, instead of disturbing his dad while he’s reading, Rory decides to go on an adventure all by himself. Unbeknownst to Rory, his dad notices him leaving and follows him. During his outing, Rory faces lots of obstacles with which his dad would typically assist him, like crossing a river, scaring away a wild pig, and finding shelter during a storm. Your kids will enjoy being in on the secret, as Rory’s dad stealthily helps out with each situation while Rory thinks he’s handling everything on his own.

The end of the book shows Rory telling his, now raggedy-looking, dad about his adventure. This is a fun story that demonstrates the fierce love of a dad. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there who, like Rory’s dad, would do anything to protect and care for their little ones!
