3. The Dinosaur Who Lived in My Backyard:
Although they disappeared long ago, dinosaurs live on in children's imaginations. A young boy playfully imagines the "dinosaur who hatched in the backyard and grew to the size of the family car..."
4. Too Many Dinosaurs:
All he wants is a puppy, but he gets a triceratops instead! When a boy asks his mother for a pet, she says no. Then the boy finds a giant dinosaur egg at his neighbor's yard sale. The neighbor, Mr. Jerry, claims the dinosaur egg is real. That night, a baby triceratops hatches and leads the boy on a dinosaur adventure. "Do something," says Mom when her house becomes surrounded by a prehistoric herd. Soon the boy makes the dinosaurs disappear. And Mom rewards him with a puppy! Every child will identify with the longing for a pet and the tender parent-child relationship and, at the same time, revel in rollicking dinosaur fun!
5. Dinosaurs Are Different:
You can learn a lot about dinosaurs by looking at their bones. Some dinosaurs were very small; others were huge. Some had sharp, pointy teeth for eating meat; most plant-eaters had flat, dull teeth. Some dinosaurs' hipbones pointed forward, while other dinosaurs' hipbones pointed backward. There were dinosaurs with bony armor on their backs and others with deadly horns on their heads. Today scientists have divided dinosaurs into separate orders according to their special characteristics. It's easy to see—dinosaurs are different.
6. Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp:
BOOMALACKA BOOMALACKA! WHACK! WHACK! WHACK!—in paperback! (ages 4-8)
What did the dinosaurs do for fun? What really happened when the Jurassic gang wanted to let off some steam? They danced, of course! They rocked and rolled; they twirled and tromped! They had themselves a Dinosaur Stomp! With illustrations by Scott Nash that leap off the page like a raptor doing the fandango, Carol Diggory Shields tells dinosaur devotees all about reptilian revelry with a foot-tapping, tail-whacking beat.
