K-Gr 2-Dinos on the Go! (Little, Brown, 2004) showcased dinosaurs riding on different types of transportation around the world. Now, these playful creatures frolic on skis, sleds, and snowboards, and they sure look as though they are having a great time. The pictures, rendered in ink and acrylics, are entertaining, with the dinos fully dressed in winter gear. The rhyming text is a bit singsongy, but libraries with repeated requests for all things dinosaur might want a copy.-Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

What happens when dinosaurs decide to spend the day in the snow? Engaging in all the wintertime favorites, they build snowmen, ski, snowboard, ice skate, sled, toboggan and engage in snowball fights. Younger listeners will enjoy the rhyming verse: "Stegosaurus skates superbly. / Watch her glide with grace. / The crowd lets out a mighty cheer. / She's sure to win first place!" While still amusing, dinosaur body type and winter activity rarely correlate. The dinosaurs themselves range from the well known and easily identifiable (even in their winter gear) T. rex and Triceratops to the little known Barapasaurus, Dilophosaurus, Supersauras and Geranaosaurus. These last few might send young readers to the library to learn more. Rader's illustrations are filled with cute cartoon dinosaurs having fun and running amok-their manners are not the best. Dinosaur fans will sit through one reading, but that might be it. (Picture book. 4-7)
