Most everybody has loved dinosaurs at some point in their childhood and here is a picture book for this generation of dino-lovers! Each page rhymes with facts about dinosaurs that you may or may not already know. Some are big, some are small. Some eat meat and some like their veggies. Some dinosaurs move quickly while others plod along. This is a poem that shares dino-facts rather than telling a story but it is jolly with it's reasoning that dinosaurs are just plain loveable!
Great book! The dinosaurs pictured on the pages are characterized as plump, brightly colored beasties with happy smiles on their faces—except the roaring T-rex. What sets this book apart from other books about dinosaurs is that hidden in the poetry are facts that readers will pick-up effortlessly. Little ones will come away from this book knowing some basic facts about these bygone brutes. Also special is that the book cover can be reversed for a wall-worthy poster. A very nice book indeed.
