Life with Bob Reviews
Friends with a DinoAs children we all asked our parents for a pet. Some of us wanted a pony while others desired a dog. We did not understand why our parents told us we could not have a pet. Little did we know about the responsibility required to take care of one. Any child would like to make the claim that they had a pet dinosaur. In William Joyce’s book Life with Bob this dream comes true for the Lazardo family.Bob is a playful Apatosaurus who does most activities that a child would do. He goes to school, reads books with his friends, paints, plays the trumpet, and plays baseball. The favorite reading place for Bob and his friends, King Kong, is the top of a skyscraper. The Lazardo children love Bob dearly and enjoy having his company. Bob also can make choices like any other individual. One day while playing with some dogs Bob picks up a car. This scares the townspeople and makes the Lazardo’s very sad. Bob soon realizes his mistake and promises not to chase cars again. Everyone is overjoyed by his decision. That night the Lazardo’s have a party and Bob plays his trumpet. To end the evening the whole family joins in a dance of Hokey Pokey.Joyce once again draws in the reader with his illustrations. The sentences may not be very elaborate but by observing the pictures one can gain new information about the characters. The illustrations also show the reader the creative mind of Joyce who has Bob and his friends reading at the top of a skyscraper. His illustrations have a classic feel to them as if the events in these books happened in the past. This is a board book so it is meant for younger individuals around the ages of three to seven. If you have an emergent reader who looking for a book filled with imagination and a friendly dinosaur this is the book for them.
