Booktalk #1

Do you like dinosaurs?  Do you like reading about them? Then this book may be just what you are looking for.  Told in poem format, you will learn about many different types of dinosaurs and what they were like.  And why we don't have any dinosaurs today.  Don't forget to check out the "Glossarysaurus" at the end of the book.

Booktalk #2

Twenty poems humorously describe dinosaurs: their surroundings, their habits, and their appearances. Douglas Florian uses collage to artistically render each poem. His muted illustrations done on paper bags prominently include letters and realistic pictures. The illustrations and poems work together to create short funny pictures of each dinosaur. Florian includes a Glossarysaurus and a list of Dinosaur Museums and Fossil Sites for those readers wishing additional information.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2014)
