No need to repay.
Just pay it forward.
Help someone today.
— Dynomike
Dynomike wants to have some strawberry pickles, but Robyn says the store is out of strawberry pickles. On his way back from the store, he finds his friend Spunky, struggling with his banana cart. Being a kindhearted dinosaur, Dynomike helped Spunky steady his banana cart, expecting nothing in return. This kind gesture of Dynomike begins a sequential flow of kindness among his friends and others.

Dynomike: Pay It Forward is a children’s book written by Frankie B. Rabbit and illustrated by Don Suratos. The cover design & book layout was done by Robyn A. Mendolla. The book is a quick read with 32 picture pages. Dynomike: Pay It Forward is book ten of Dynomike Teaches series with interesting animal characters such as Robyn, Spunky, Chef Wiggles, and Jack.

What I like most is the moral lesson this book teaches — helping people and expecting nothing in return. The average human is selfish. People won’t help others unless they have something to gain from it, which is bad. From this short tale, we can see that kindness attracts your desires to you and you lose nothing by showing people kindness. I would recommend this book to both kids and adults because if adults have a pure heart like kids, life would be much better.

There is nothing I dislike about this book. The book has no negatives at all. It was perfectly created and illustrated. I like the author’s concept of using a dinosaur in a pet-like manner for the illustration. For the creativity and perfectness of this book, it deserves a 4 out of 4 stars rating.

The book was proofread carefully as I found no error. The author’s writing style was creative and instructive. He was straight to the point. The picture quality and illustration are impressive, as a good children’s book ought to be. I enjoyed the creative pattern of rhyming the last words in the second and fourth lines. The book’s pace is a fast one. The story is engaging too.

So, the next time someone helps you or shows you kindness, don’t let it end with you. Pay it forward! Spread the kindness!! We must develop the mindset of helping someone as often as we can.

You might wonder how you can pay it forward or what it means to pay it forward. Well, let Dynomike teach you.

I read the book and loved the whole idea behind the story: Helping others freely. The only thing that pissed me about the book is the huge volume size with only 34 pages. Same issue was with book one of the series, 61mbs with only 35 pages (pdf format). I'm glad you enjoyed reading the book. Awesome review. Kudos.

Yeah. I think the size is big because it's a picture book in high quality. Thanks for your comment.

This is such a beautiful book for kids. The concept and value of 'Pay it forward' is one of the most essential ones that kids learn at this age, and this book helps make it easier to understand with such pretty imagery and lovable characters. Thank you for the wonderful review! It's very well written. 🙂

You're right. We, as adults, probably need to learn or relearn this valuable lesson even more than kids do. And, adding to lovely books like this one, leading by example is a great way to ensure the young generation is kinder.
Thank you for your amazing review!

I like the concept - Pay it forward, spread the kindness. Who wouldn't mind a little kindness? Its important to teach children this virtue, and to remind adults often.

Great review!

Pay it forward! Not only the kids have to learn this, we the adults need to learn this as well. A lovely book and would like to have this book myself in physical copy.

I also gave this book a 4 out of 4 stars. A great book that seeks to teach children about the importance of giving without expecting anything in return.
