About the Author

Dr. Steven Clark Cunningham was born in Denver, Colorado. After graduating from Creighton University with majors in chemistry and Spanish, he attended medical school at George Washington University in Washington, DC. Having finished his residency in general surgery at the University of Maryland in Baltimore, Maryland, he is currently doing a fellowship in surgery of the liver and pancreas at Johns Hopkins University. He has served as a contributing editor of Maryland Poetry Review, and his poems have appeared in Maryland Poetry Review, The New Physician (winner of literary arts contest), Chimeras, WordHouse: Baltimore s Literary Calendar, the anthology Function At The Junction #2 (Electric Press, 1997), the cookbook Pasta Poetics (ed. Matt Hohner, 1997), and the anthology Poems for Chromosomes (Watermark Press, 1998).

Dr. Myriam Gorospe was born in San Sebastian (Donostia), Spain. She received her Ph.D. from the State University of New York at Albany. She completed her postdoctoral training at the National Institutes of Health, where she studies genes (some of the same genes that dinosaurs might have had!). She has broad experience translating between English and Spanish, ranging from scientific and technical documents to poetry and literature.

Valeska Maria Populoh grew up in a small town in Germany, immersed in storytelling and rituals. Tales of saints wafting through plumes of smoke in the cathedral blended together with mesmerizing puppet shows beamed in from Poland and the folktalesher mother read to her from thick, brown tomes. The calendar was filled with community celebrations lantern processions on St. Martin s Day, annual eruptions of color and costume for Carnival. Her childhood was imbued with richness and color. When she moved to America as a young girl, she tumbled headlong into that perplexing terrain of not speaking a language and so improvising pantomime to communicate. Her best tools were picture books and a sticker album her teacher made for her, in which she recorded the words she learned. Art, music and gym class were her solace. From this grew a strong and abiding fascination with language, the power of the body and images to communicate without words, and a sensitivity to feelings of otherness, and the value of community. After years of nomadism, both geographic and professional, she now resides in Baltimore, Maryland, engaged in the community as a puppeteer, performer, artist, and teacher. Making art and illustrating dinosaurs is one part of this life, dedicated to celebrating creativity, making joyful, enriching and colorful experiences available and accessible to others, and supporting youth in their endeavor to find their own creative voice.

Format: Paperback
This book is a collection of poems about dinosaur names, written in English
and Spanish, and richly illustrated with the named dinosaurs. The book
is primarily aimed at children 4-12 years old, but can profitably be read
by persons of all ages, who wish to learn some elementary dinosaur
nomenclature, or who wish to build up their elementary skills in English
or Spanish. The end of the book includes an alphabetical glossary of all
the dinosaurs named in the book: the etymology of dinosaur names (e.g.,
archaeopteryx ("ancient wing"): archaio = ancient, pteryx = wing), diet,
locomotion, and interesting notes. In a sense, the reader gets four languages
for the price of two, since dinosaur word-roots are Latin and Greek,
the two languages which contribute most of the vocabulary to modern science
and technology. Children who learn these word-roots will meet them again
in their general science, chemistry, and biology courses.

In the golden age of poetry, from William Shakespeare and Miguel
de Cervantes-Saavedra to the end of the nineteenth century, poetry
had a larger purpose than collections of catchy words and phrases
about love, war, and wilderness scenery. The best poets were
not only masters of rhyme, dactyls, and hexameters, but also understood
the theology, cosmology, natural science, and medicine of their day.
Long before I ever saw their words on the printed page, my dad took
our family on long Sunday drives, and recited poems of Samuel Taylor
Coleridge, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.,
as he drove us along the rural roads of central Michigan. This was
my first, pre-school education.

Although my second language is German, my college student son is minoring in Spanish and strives to counsel children. We read this together and absolutely loved it! The dinosaurs come alive as you read about them and we found great humor in comparing many of the descriptions to people in our lives.
This is a colorful, easily understood and wonderful educational resource for all!

I wasn't sure my little girl (now 18 months) would be as into this book as some of her others. She loves it! She enjoys the rhymes and acting out the different dinosaur characteristics as described in the poems. We have now given this book twice as a birthday gift!

Format: Paperback
This unique childrens' book delights in a number of ways. Cunningham's poems are educational, sweet, surprising and just plain fun. Younger children will love the whimsical illustrations, while older children (and adults) will treasure the poems, and all will learn something about dinosaurs. The simultaneous use of English and Spanish will fascinate any curious child. Kudos to Three Conditions Press for publishing this little gem.

I read this delightful book with my two grandsons. We had great fun. We were surprised to find that a dinosaur that was as vicious looking as the Velociraptor was common egg thief.
We recommend this book to any young dinophiles.
