We've all been there. Trying to leave the house and our little ones have decided that the best outfit for grocery shopping is their favourite wizard, fairy, dinosaur costume. Whatever their creative choices, it can be a fight that we're too tired to have.

Kylie Westaway took this experience and turned it into a cute and hilarious book called Why Can't I be a Dinsoaur?

Why Can't I be a Dinosaur? is this week's Story Of The Week. You can catch it every night at 5pm during Settle Petal or download it to listen anytime in our free Kinderling App.
