New readers will happily clap along to the incantatory rhythms of this call to ‘dig, dig, dig’—in both senses of the word—dino fossils. Tailor-made for reading aloud.
Houran’s rhyming text is just right for chanting (or singing along to the tune of “Skip to My Lou”) at storytimes. As each stage of the process repeats... young paleontologists carefully excavate dinosaur bones, assembling and displaying them in a museum.
Hardcover, jacketed picture book. Ages 3 to 6. Albert Whitman & Company, 2013.
