Product Description from Amazon: Gorgonzola is a dinosaur known near and far for his D.O.–dinosaur odor. Gorgonzola is one serious stinker until a brave little bird shows him how to clean up his act. This tale offers a valuable first lesson about personal hygiene. Full color.
Mary’s Review: A fun and colorful book that teaches children about proper hygiene. Gorgonzola is a dinosaur everyone runs from but not because they are afraid of him, but because he’s a stinkysaus until a mother bird takes pity on him and teaches him all about how to be a sweet cleanasaurus.
A great book with such cute illustrations showing each step of cleanliness.
I recommend this book for ages 3-10.
