Giles Andreae and David Wojtowycz have combined their talents once again to create this funny, rhythmic and fact filled picture book about the lives of the great dinosaurs. From sun-up to sundown, meet the creatures that swam, roamed & flew over prehistoric earth. Full color.
PreS-Gr 3-Starting with Tyrannosaurus rex, a dozen different dinosaurs introduce themselves in funny, rhyming verses. The subjects range from the tiny Microraptor ("I'm as little as a chicken,/but please don't be too hasty!/Although I may be chicken-sized,/I'm nowhere near as tasty!") to the gigantic Supersaurus ("My neck is so long I can stretch it/to nibble the tops of tall trees./I like to look down at my friends on the ground/who barely reach up to my knees!"). Phonetic guides appear beneath each species name to help with pronunciation. The cartoon illustrations are absolutely gorgeous and enhance the humor of the text. The pages are filled with striking hues, and the creatures pop out from the richly colored scenes to delight the eye. Each dinosaur wears an enchantingly childlike smile or scowl. Most of the paintings fill two pages, while the text dances gracefully across the spreads. This book is a great choice for reading aloud or sharing one-on-one, and fluent readers will love giggling their way through it alone.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
The team behind Rumble in the Jungle now tackles the Jurassic Park crowd in Dinosaurs Galore! by Giles Andreae, illus. by David Wojtowycz. Beginning with Tyrannosaurus rex and winding up with Giganotosaurus, the prehistoric parade of psychedelic-hued lizards accentuate their best known features in the illustrations and accompanying quatrains.
