Danny and the Dinosaur:Too Tall (1)

Danny and the Dinosaur: Too Tall (I Can Read Level 1) - Syd Hoff, Syd Hoff

In Danny and the Dinosaur:Too Tall , Danny's dinosaur confesses that being so tall and different makes him sad.  The dinosaur explains all the things that are more difficult to him because he is so tall.  Danny then takes him into the city and shows him the advantages of being tall.  In the end, the dinosaur ends up saving a city worker's life because he saved him from way up in the sky!  This would be such a great book to use in kindergarten.  Not only does it have several kindergarten sight words in it, but it teaches about diversity and uniqueness.  I would use this to show that being different is not a bad thing and that everyone has something that makes them different from everyone else.
