    One thought on “Dinothesaurus: Prehistoric Poems and Paintings”

    1. Another great title from Douglas Florian, this book will be an instant hit with dinosaur fanatics (and I've already seen our library copies fly off the shelves). Each spread features a different dinosaur with a painting and a poem. The art includes so many creative details that kids will love to pore over the pages. The poems are humorous and feature the wordplay that Florian does so very well. A treat for those of us who read aloud are pronunciations of each dino's name right there on the page [...]

Dinothesaurus – Prehistoric Poems and PaintingsOn Booklist ReviewAuthored and Illustrated by Douglas FlorianPublisher: Beach Lane Book, March 10, 2009PoetryDinothesaurus, as its name implies, is a lively play on words throughout. “Ste-go-SAUR-us/Her-bi-VOR-ous/Dined on plants inside the forest.” Author and Illustrator Douglas Florian takes us on tour through the Age of the Dinosaurs in wittingly poetic detail.

    3. OOPS! How did I get behind on his books? I love his poetry!I wish I could write poetry that didn't sound like a pathetic teenager.Here is one short snippet about the Troodon "Said to be brainy.Said to be bright.But what did it read?And what did it write?"Or here's one that shares some info on the Stegosaurus "Ste-go-SAUR-usHer-bi-VOR-ousDined on plants inside the forest.Bony plates grew on its back,Perhaps to guard it from attack."Must add this to our collection. And quick!

    4. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book of dinosaur-themed poetry. The illustrations are fabulous. The poetry is fun, humorous, and educational in a delightfully sneaky way. This would be a very fun book to read with a young dino-enthusiast. Also great for phonological awareness (because of the rhyming), and vocabulary skills--not only because of the dinosaur names provided, but also because of other words used in the text like "colossal" and "voracious". Excellent book!
