Overview

Dancing dinosaurs! Reading aloud has never been so much fun!

What did the dinosaurs do for fun? What really happened when the Jurassic gang wanted to let off some steam? They danced, of course! They rocked and rolled; they twirled and tromped! They had themselves a Dinosaur Stomp! With illustrations by Scott Nash that leap off the page like a raptor doing the fandango, Carol Diggory Shields tells dinosaur devotees all about reptilian revelry with a foot-tapping, tail-whacking beat.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Williamson
Before the prehistoric animals come out to play on a Saturday night, there is some serious preparation and anticipation that must occur. Once they arrive, some of the various animals bounce and dance while others provide the music. "Pentaceratops stood up to perform; And blasted a tune on his favorite horn. They played in rhythm, they sang in rhyme; Dinosaur music in dinosaur time!" Shields' rhythm will be contagious as children join the party along with their favorite prehistoric creatures. Brightly illustrated by Scott Nash, the animals come alive as they scurry around to get ready for the party. They only get more rambunctious as they arrive to find music, food and fun. When the volcanoes begin to blow, providing a "fireworks show," the dinosaurs "danced up the first earthquake!" staying up "well past the late Cretaceous." Used as a read-aloud, this book will inspire children to join in as they dance with animals at the dinosaur stomp and give adults the chance to teach about these wonderful animals.
