Books of the Week – Feb. 6, 2010

Click the button above to see more reviews of great kids’ books!

Like the widget? I finally decided to get it since I normally only really write about one or two books each week. We normally read many more and this is a way to let you see some of the others. Any of the books in the rotation above are recommended!
We are starting to discuss dinosaurs and we’ve had fun reading a couple of new (to us) dino books this past week.
Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp, by Carol Diggory Shields:imageThe rhyming text in this book is fun to read and the illustrations are fantastic (ill. by Scott Nash). It’s a fun story about a dinosaur dance and does a good job of naming a lot of dinos.
Ten Terrible Dinosaurs, by Paul Stickland:image Paul Stickland has several fun dinosaur books, but this was the first time we’d read this particular one. The characters look the same as they do in his other books and M recognized them all. It’s fun to watch as one by one each dino leaves the group. They really are terrible, but they look adorable in my opinion. :) I love the facial expressions and unique character given to each of these dinos.
Have a beautiful day! :)


  1. I didn't know Paul Strickland had other dinosaur books, but we love Ten Terrible Dinosaurs. We definitely have to look for the others!

  2. I love good dinosaur books, will have to add these to my list.

  3. We love Paul Stickland. My daughter got Drew a pop up book of his last Christmas and he loves it.

  4. I bet Selena would enjoy those books. She loves dinosaurs right now.

  5. Great dinosaur books this week! My son has been on a dinosaur kick lately with all of Jane Yolen's How Do Dinosaurs Say...books, so I'm definitely going to look in to these. We've got Dinosaur Roar by Paul and Henrietta Stickland, and it is a favorite at our house!

  6. Thanks for joining this week! Anna enjoyed the same Strickland book when we had our dinosaur unit. The first one looks interesting - I'll look for it. And I am very curious - how did M like the poetry book? We got our own, and Anna still asks for it every day.

  7. Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp was one of my oldest son's favorite books when he was little. I haven't read it to the youngest ones yet, but I can still remember some of the text. If you read it enough, I guess it stays with you!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment; I love reading them! If you ask a question and don't receive a personal reply, check back here for the answer. Often I reply via comment to something that might be of interest to others.
