In Conversation with Steven Joseph:  An attorney, comedian, Zen master and the author of “The Last Surviving Dinosaur: The TyrantoCrankaTsuris”

Hello, and welcome to the Reading with your kids podcast, your one stop solution to all your children’s book needs!

Our guest today is Steven Joseph, an attorney, and new Hoboken resident. He is joining us today to talk about his first children’s book  titled “ The Last Surviving Dinosaur: The TryantoCrankaTsuris.”

This book is dedicated to Steven’s daughter Vita who should always pursue her dreams, and to his Mom, who passed away in 2017, and was a Holocaust Survivor.

In our exciting interview, The book is not about overcoming our crankiness, but rather, to acknowledge and even embrace our own crankiness, especially with a bit of humor.  It is only when you begin to acknowledge, you can then learn to control so the world can stay happy, and not too cranky!!

The Last Surviving Dinosaur: The TyrantoCrankaTsuris

The Last Surviving Dinosaur: The TyrantoCrankaTsurisMany people grew up believing that dinosaurs became extinct when the Dark Ages arrived, but that’s only partly true. Yes, the Dark Ages did come, but one cranky dinosaur survived and became mankind’s oldest ancestor: the TyrantoCrankaTsuris. In this playful, imaginative tale that draws inspiration from Jewish culture, author Steven Joseph reminds children and adults alike that we all have a little TyrantoCrankaTsuris in us and encourages readers to balance their woes with the positive things in life in pursuit of a happier world.
