My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is a really cute children’s book starring a behemoth dinosaur, Job the child, and the people of Uz. It’s a bilingual story, split into parts, the first in English, then in Spanish. The story is about the people of Uz who are afraid of the behemoth dinosaur because he’s different, and they are scared he will take all their food and water when he lives there as well. As the story progresses, the people learn that sharing, even with such a large, unusual creature, isn’t as bad as it seems as long as everyone shares equally, including the behemoth.
The graphics are horribly executed on the Kindle, as even on my Kindle app on my tablet, the graphics were almost impossible to see. My 6 year old wasn’t able to enjoy the graphics as much as she should have. I’m sure the paperback is much different.
