Dinosaur Roar! 03/04/07
Dinosaur Roar is another from the set of books we got from herebedragons at the February BookCrossing meeting. I was sure it was a duplicate copy as I know Sean and I have read it before but now I realize it must have been a book we borrowed from one of Sean's schools; I just can't remember which one. Nor can I find a listing in my book diary. All I know is that Sean and I have read a copy of this book before.
Dinosaur Roar! is a book of opposites. Each spread illustrates an opposite with the help of two dinosaurs. The text uses simple rhymes and the illustrations use bold and exaggerated colors. While the book won't by itself teach about dinosaurs (as the emphasis is on the opposites like big and small, etc) it is a good starting point for discussing dinosaurs.
The book reminds me of Tails by Matthew Van Fleet. The larger than life illustrations and the humorous rhymes are similar. Children who like Tails will like Dinosaur Roar!
