In my son's class, instead of bringing sweets to celebrate a birthday, we are asked to bring books to dedicate to the class room. We chose this on because Danny was turning six along with my son. I read it to the class, brought a plastic dinasour for each child and then taped my son's picture in the front cover and dedicated it to his class w/date. Perfect!! The kids LOVED the story!!
