One day Dynomike visits Robyn at her shop. He would like to buy some strawberry pickles. Robyn informs him that the strawberry pickles are sold out. Feeling disappointed Dynomike leaves. He soon sees his friend Spunky pushing a cart of bananas up a hill. As the cart begins to roll away down the hill Dynomike quickly joins Spunky to help him stop the cart. Spunky is very grateful for the help rendered to him. He wants to repay his friend. Instead, Dynomike asks him to pay it forward by helping another.

Dynomike: Pay It Forward by Frankie B. Rabbit is part of the Dynomike series of children’s books. It is a 34-page book filled with colourful eye-catching illustrations. Born and raised in New Jersey, Frank B. Rabbit decided to write children’s books as a new hobby.

All the characters portrayed such as Dynomike who happens to be a dinosaur are either animals or birds such as Spunky the monkey, Robyn the Robin and Jack the puppy. All look cute and adorable. The text is short and has some rhyme on every other line. It is also partly repetitive which would help allow children to remember the words. With a hero like Dynomike dishing out lessons children can easily grasp the need to be kind to others without expecting anything in return. Kindness sown will reap kindness even if it comes back another way.

I liked that the pictures tell the story in a sequence where no text is provided. Such that children can grasp the story even without words. I was not to keen that the word 'bummer' was used to express disappointment. I don't think that would be a word to teach children to express at a young age.

I am happy to rate this book 4 out of 4 stars and recommend it to parents who can read it with their younger children as well as for children aged 4 to 6 years of age.

In a society that fosters competition and individualism, we need these books. The planet is currently on reboot. May we still have a chance to rid our world of viruses of all kinds, including apathy, greed and hatred.

A little kindness always goes a long way and reverberates other acts of kindness. Its a good thing the book strongly brings this out. Its an important lesson for both children and adults. Great review!

This book sounds quite interesting, especially not that it has a moral teaching.
Thanks!
Just do it!
