Why I Like This
This simple rhyming text will tickle the fancy of young dinosaur lovers at the same time that it introduces opposites: "Dinosaur roar, dinosaur squeak, dinosaur fierce, dinosaur meek..." And what do the colorful, parading creatures sound like when eating their lunch? Why, "gobble, gobble, nibble, nibble, munch, munch, scrunch," of course!
But don't take my word for it. Here's what David Swanson has to say:
"It's short but does a lot!
Each spread features a simple comparison of 2 different dinosaurs. It's a simple book of opposites that feature vibrant water color illustrations that are wonderfully painted to illustrate the comparison concepts.
"Dinosaur clean, dinosaur slimy." "Dinosaur fit, dinosaur fat." "Dinosaur short or very very long." spiky / lumpy etc.etc. It rhymes comfortably throughout. I've taken my examples out of order. But that's the idea of comparing opposites.
The fierce dinosaur is smaller than the meek one which is huge! That's an interesting juxtaposition, much like in real life!
I love it for the simple comparison of opposites with fun visuals!"
Publisher Notes: Dinosaur Roar!
* Dinosaurs of every shape and size race, roar, and stomp through this colorful book of opposites. And where are all these silly-looking creatures off to? A dinosaur picnic, of course! These prehistoric pranksters and the simple, playful rhymes that accompany them will delight children everywhere. Dinosaur Roar! is an entertaining way to introduce preschoolers to the concept of opposites.

My Grandsons have plastic dinosaurs to play with and how they love them! You know, pretend roaring and fighting... oh my! And then, do you remember the movie Land Before Time? My favorite song, If We Hold On Together, is played so beautifully on piano.
Until next time,
Have a "super dino" day!
