PreSchool-K?A simple rhyme to tickle the fancy of the youngest dino fans. "Dinosaur roar,/dinosaur squeak,/dinosaur fierce,/ dinosaur meek..." Whether weak or strong, fast or slow, etc., these colorful, slightly daft-looking creatures introduce a series of opposites as they parade across the double-page spreads. And where are the beasts marching? To eat their lunch "gobble, gobble, nibble, nibble, munch, munch, scrunch!" While the appealing watercolors are not scientifically accurate enough to suit avid dinosaurians, these prehistoric monsters are just perfect for the preschool crowd. A natural for story time.?Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE

Ages 3-5. Dinosaurs are the gimmick here, not really the subject. The subjects are, first, antonyms--such as above/below and weak/strong--and then lunch. The paired dinosaurs, in a goofy array of pastels, are almost all smiling, even when the rhyme insists they're "grumpy"--so when they settle down to a lunch with (and not of) each other, the end is satisfying. The pictures and swingy short verses will make this a good group read-aloud, even for the very young. Mary Harris Veeder --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Dino fan kids will get a kick out of "Dinosaur Roar!" But, I think this book would be a great book even for kids that aren't that into dinosaurs. The book goes through different "types" of dinos, highlighting opposites - strong & weak; sweet & fierce; clean & dirty. These are things any kid can learn from and enjoy.
Each spread features a simple comparision of 2 different dinosaurs. It's a simple book of opposites that feature vibrant water color illustrations that are wonderfully painted to illustrate the comparison concepts.
"Dinosaur clean, dinosaur slimmy." "Dinosaur fit, dinosaur fat." "Dinosaur short or very very long." spiky / lumpy etc.etc. It rhymes comfortably throughout. I've taken my examples out of order. But that's the idea of comparing opposites.
The fierce dinosaur is smaller than the meek one which is huge! That's an interesting juxtaposition, much like in real life!
I love it for the simple comparison of opposites with fun visuals!
