Bart’s Escape out the Gate

Bart’s Escape Out the Gate: Lisa Reinicke and Illustrated by Analise Black

What would you do if your pet dinosaur got out of his pen because you forgot to lock the gate? You can’t imagine the havoc that this dinosaur will wreak. He escaped and went out full blast running over the entire landscape causing trouble for his neighbors. Screaming did not stop him. Yelling did nothing he ignored him and his quest to catch him well join me as we learn the final outcome of what happens when Bart Escapes Out the Gate!

First he scared the animals that did not realize he just wanted to have some fun. Next, chasing him did no good and seeing him run loose you won’t believe what he did! The pictures along tell the story and next he knocked over things and this poor boy was more than stressed out.
How will he stop him and get him back in his pen? He had to figure out a way to outsmart him but could he? Playing hide and seek? Would he find him if the dino hid first? Well, Bart was hiding in plain sight eating the neighbor’s grass. I guess he was hungry from running around so much and could not resist the taste of delicious fresh grass. But, the inevitable happens and he just plops down and crushes all the flowers beneath him. Trying to push and shove him did not work. Would getting wagon help? Filling it with all of his favorite treats would that lure him to follow him and return to his pen?

The outcome was interesting as the young boy did something very grownup. He owned up for what the Dinosaur did and apologized for what he ruined. A lesson in responsibility and honesty is at the root of this book. How did he help with the grass, flowers, the clean up and more? Did you try to pass the buck or did he help fix what Bart did? Do you think he will forget to keep the pen locked again? What do you think the neighbors said when he owned up to his responsibilities?

The book is a must read for young readers to learn that mistakes happen and you have to own up to them hoping that you can repair what you did and that others will forgive you. The colorful illustrations brings the story and Bart to life and the end result of what happens when he tells the neighbors why things turned topsy turvy you will have to read for yourself. A great book for young readers and non-readers to learn the lessons of responsibility and honesty and owning up to your mistakes that can be read by teachers, parents and discussion groups even children that are in middle grades can learn these lessons too. Teachers can even ask students to write stories about what would happen if their pets got out what would they do and how would they handle it. Let’s hope Bart stays in his pen but if he gets out I can’t wait to see what he might do next!
