One small Apatosaurus named Bronto and his heartwarming story of friendship and caring comes beautifully to life with Charlotte Vivian Rodenberg’s words, watercolor and ink illustrations in one of the newest titles from Portland publishing house Craigmore Creations. Bronto comes across a nest of whimpering pterodactyl eggs with no mother to be found. He cares for the eggs as he waits for the mother to return. Ultimately, Bronto must be resourceful and find a way to quickly protect the eggs from an erupting volcano before making his own escape. Have a story time with any young booklover and dinosaur enthusiast, ages 2 to 8, and find out how Bronto protects the eggs and what happens next in this unique Jurassic adventure. This tale is perfect to introduce any young mind to science, dinosaurs, and adventure. The story flows nicely and each page is illustrated with hand-painted watercolor and ink by the author. We hope this first book from Rodenberg is not her last!
