Candy and the Cankersaur by Jason Sandberg

Good Morning my Peeps!   Today I have a real treat for you-- a children's book, Candy and the Cankersaur.   As anyone who follows me is aware, I love to read and I believe reading is of utmost importance to our young people.    I have books and I have grandchildren and I love to read with my grands.  

 With that said, Mr Sandberg provided me with a PDF copy of his book in exchange for an honest review.   He is author and illustrator of this fun little book .  "Candy and the Cankersaur" is a picture book about a girl who receives a dinosaur as a gift and her determination to train him to be a good pet.  It's a fun homage to Syd Hoff and will make all dinosaur-crazy boys and girls happy.

First of all, let me say the art work is top notch!   I can hardly wait to read this story to my two year old grand daughter   and even the boys will enjoy it, although it's perhaps geared for a younger audience than them at this time.   However, they still like to have fun and I think they'll get a kick out of it too!  It's a short read at 32 pages, but it is fun.   Candy tries to teach her cankersaur to be a good pet, but they both learn that sometimes, the rules you set, have to be broken in certain circumstances.

As a bedtime story Picture Book it’s aimed for children ages 3-6.
As a read-alone Picture Book it’s appropriate for children ages 6-9.
