Elephant and Piggy like to read and this book is one that they love.

Dinosaurs are tough and so they don’t scratch when they itch. One little dinosaur doesn’t scratch because the sign on the rock says not to. One by one, other dinosaurs appear with an itch that needs a good scratch. Bug bites, cuts, itchy shirt tags and all is what these dinosaurs are dealing with, but they toughen up after reading the rock. Even T-Rex doesn’t scratch. The one little dinosaur is put to the itchiest test ever. Dry leaves, a straw hat, grass, hair and even a cat on him doesn’t get him to scratch. How long do you think he can be tough before he has to scratch?

This hilarious story is fun and silly. Kids know what it’s like to have an itch that they need to scratch. Colorful illustrations and short snappy sentences make this sturdy little book an excellent read for beginners. Parents and caregivers will have fun presenting this story as a read-a-loud.
