D. Kirsten Cucko Shares Story of Little Boy and His Dinosaur Friend in a Tale to Spark Imaginations
Told from the point of view of one little boy with a passion for dinosaurs, “If Dinosaurs were Around Today” watches as he imagines what his day-to-day life would look like if his best friend were a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The boy pictures them playing on the playground, where the dinosaur would accidentally bend the swing set bar while trying to sit on it and send the little boy flying in the air while trying to play on the seesaw. Similarly, the Tyrannosaurus Rex could play soccer with him and come along on family vacations to ride roller coasters.
Combining humor with practical education, “If Dinosaurs were Around Today” teaches children the value of doing their chores, family and good friends. The dinosaur not only helps the child’s mother carry in groceries, but also helps lighten the load by eating them as he goes. The boy’s dinosaur helps with other chores by taking out the trash and cleaning the dishes by licking them clean. When the boy’s family visits the seashore, the dinosaur comes with them to enjoy the company of family.
Through playful, touching illustrations and simple text, “If Dinosaurs were Around Today” communicates a heartfelt friendship formed between one little boy and his dinosaur friend that reveals the benefits of setting good examples in a child’s life. Perfect for early reading, “If Dinosaurs were Around Today” has a winning combination of words, images and fantasy that is sure to spark young readers’ imaginations.
D. Kirsten Cucko was born and raised in New Jersey. She is a first-time author and mother to her son, Logan, who suffers from the learning disorder apraxia. “I wrote ‘If Dinosaurs were Around Today’ one day while I was driving, literally, my son back and forth from his speech class and pre-school,” writes Cucko. “I listened very carefully and although [Logan's] speech struggled, I instantly realized there was a little boy sitting in my back seat with an imagination as big as his dear heart. I wrote this story for my son with the hope to inspire parents and brighten another child’s day.”
