Dinosaur Reads…Nate the Great and the Pillowcase

nate the great and the pillowcase

My library is having a summer reading program. I love to read so I am going to win all the prizes. I know Mommy reads to me, but I make her read the books over and over. Plus, after she reads me the book, I remember what it’s about and read it to myself. I’m super smart and awesome.


For reading ten books I got this awesome poster.


I just finished another ten, which means twenty books. So now I get a bag. We will go back to the library on Friday to get my next prize and more books.

Amazon SummaryIt’s two o’clock in the morning when the telephone rings and Nate the Great learns that Rosamond’s pillowcase is missing. She needs it now because her cat, Big Hex, likes to sleep on it. 

Outside it is damp, dark, and dreary, but a good (yawning) sleuth knows that the hunt must go on. Can Nate the Great find the missing piece of laundry before the sun comes up, and before his bedroom slippers wear out?


Dino Review: He’s always sleeping when they call, that’s not nice. I’d tell them to not call me when I’m sleeping, I need sleep. (points his finger at me as he tells me this). Nate always solves the mystery. They couldn’t find the pillowcase, but Nate did. I’m a great mystery solver too. I always find my lost toys and Mommy helps me. 


Mommy Review: Best read with short breaks and constant reviews. We stopped after Nate talked to each person and decided if he/she took the pillowcase. It’s fun to try to solve the mystery and great for making predictions.

  1. What a great reader! 20 books already read this summer is fantastic! This also sounds like a cute book. It’s really interesting to see the difference between the books read to Dino and the books my girls love. How many books do you think he’ll finish before the summer is over?

    • I think the program only awards up to 60 books, after every ten a prize, but knowing him he’ll keep going. We’ve been borrowing and reading like mad before the summer program.

  2. Hurrahhh, I love that Dino loves a good mystery, He he. We are getting Gigi a magnifying glass for her 3rd birthday, as she loves to solve mysteries. Hopefully when she is about 8 she will actually want to read my mystery book, lol, hopefully it will be a series by then, hurrah. Love Dino reviews, keep up the great work Dino. Thanks again for joining us on the Hop Karen.

  3. Oh, I just love the library reading programs – they are FANTASTIC!! I love what Dino said about needing his sleep – I’m pretty sure my son would say it was no problem for him (although it certainly would be! lol) Thanks for linking in the Kid Lit Blog Hop! 🙂

Would love to read your thoughts
