Book review: There’s a Dinosaur in my Bathtub

We were sent There’s a Dinosaur in my Bathtub to review by Britmums.  If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know we love books, and this shoots right up near the top of the list for me.  Even N was keen to read it, even though he can sometimes be a bit funny with dinosaur books, and books with girls in.

Dinosaur in my bathtub book review

The illustrations are really bold colours and I love that in a picture book, showing it really means business.  I find N’s more interested in books that are bolder in colour on the whole.  The pictures are quite busy – there’s always something to look at and find.  With the font style, it feels quite vintage-y.

This is about a little girl and the dinosaur in her bathtub, a French dinosaur at that.  They try and keep him hidden until it’s time for him to go.  Adding the French aspect, adds a little bit of extra fun; it’s a great way to  introduce children to a new language.  N does a little bit of French at both of his nurseries, so every little bit thrown in helps.

It’s a fun book, and one that we both enjoyed, so it’ll be staying on our reading piles.


Disclosure: We were sent this book as part of the Britmums Book review club.  There’s a Dinosaur in my Bathtub by Catalina Echeverri, and published by Bloomsbury, is on sale at Amazon
