Poetry Friday is hosted today by Teacher Dance.
My selection is "Dinothesaurus: prehistoric poems and paintings" by Douglas Florian.
There are the familiar names Brachiosaurus Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex, and Triceratops, but they share pages with less known dinos Micropachycephalosaurus (say that one fast three times) and Minmi. Rounding out the text, there is a list of Dinosaur Museums and fossil Sites, a Selected Bibliography and information on further reading.
Florian delivers fun facts through his trade mark wordplay and colorful illustrations. The poems are energetic, entertaining and kid-friendly.
