We're big fans of the "I Can Read!" paperbacks, and started to run out of new "My First" level books. I looked at the Level 1, Beginning Reading, books and happened upon these two oldie but goodie books from Syd Hoff.

"Danny and the Dinosaur" first came out in 1958, and was followed a year later by "Sammy the Seal". I was delighted to see them reissued as "I Can Read!" books. They are a particularly good deal because they are twice as long as the usual "I Can Read!" books, but are still available at the regular paperback price.

In "Danny and the Dinosaur" a kid meets a live dinosaur at the museum and heads out into the City with him for a day of wild/mild adventure. In "Sammy the Seal" a friendly seal who's curious about life is allowed a day out of the zoo so he can wander around and explore. Both books feature kind and friendly kids, helpful adults, cheerful adventures and no drama. Is this a 50's sort of thing? Well, yes, the books do have a bit of a nostalgic rose-colored-glasses feel to them, but they aren't glaringly old-fashioned and they've actually aged awfully well.

So, these are two books that you might recognize from your own childhood library, they aren't franchise or movie tie-ins, they are readable at the recommended
If it matters at all to you, this book didn't look as it does in the picture. The blue sky that is pictured on the cover is actually a metallic silver on the one I received. Other than that, the contents of the book is just as I remembered it to be years ago.
It was my sisters favorite childhood book and I bought it for her to read to my grand daughter. She loved it.
my 2 year old son loves elephants, and we love reading this book about Oliver! If your child enjoys Danny and the Dinosaur, I highly recommend adding this book to your library! Very easy words- will be wonderful to use when he is learning to read!
Great easy read for my struggling reader.
This was the first book I read as a little kid. It's nice that they just did a new edition hardback so I could give it to my little girl.

A book such as this is great for encouraging reluctant readers to read.
Perfect for our grandson!! Thank you
