Dinosaurs stomp through the pages!

Do you think that you may be a dinosaur? If your claws puncture kickballs, you use a whole tree to brush your teeth, and your tail spikes always rip through your pants, it’s possible that you may just be a dinosaur. Apatosaurus chomps and Velociraptor romps in this hilarious, informative rhyming picture book. Bright illustrations show children the tail-thumping chaos a Spinosaurus could cause trying to find dinner in a refrigerator and why a T. rex should never, ever try to take the school bus. Featuring information on dinosaurs’ sizes, diets, health, and social lives, You May Just Be a Dinosaur is a prehistoric parade of the funniest, punniest, chummiest dinos you’ll ever see in the schoolyard.

Creative book perfect for dinosaur lovers Lots of fun facts about dinosaurs are cleverly delivered in “You May Just Be A Dinosaur.” The story explores an Apatosarus, Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus, Velociraptor and more in normal human tasks, brushing their teeth or hair and interacting with others. Each attempt to do something made difficult by being a dinosaur, for example, “Do none of the clothes in your closet fit? Do the plates down your back make your shirt and pants split?” There is also a small paragraph with facts and information about each one mentioned. The story is pretty straightforward, but the situations pair well with each dinosaur, making it funny. And they get increasingly funnier, especially when a triceratops ends up squeezed into a bathtub or a Tyrannosaurus trying to get into a bus. Each bit begins with a question, “When you wake up every morning, what’s the first thing you do?” followed by the inability to complete the tasks suggested, and concluding with “you may just be a dinosaur.” There are also lots of day to day activities examined, brushing teeth, getting dressed, riding the bus, dinner, bathtime and dinnertime. Readers should enjoy the idea of these routine tasks from a dinosaurs prospective. It is written in a rhyming fashion, that gives it a good rhythm. After the brief descriptions, typically a question is posed, such as “Would you shriek if a velocraptor smiled at you?” or “Do you think the earth would tremble if one [spinosaurus] walked next to you?” A great opportunity for discussion and exploring the ideas more. The illustrations are soft and perfectly depict the humor of the story. At one point a spinosaurus lifts a fridge and begins to eat the contents falling out, in another a velociraptor attempts to kick a ball. The actual dinosaurs are detailed, you could count the teeth or spikes on each one. In one part the counting is even encouraged, with the numbers 1-5 depicted in regards to the horns. Dino fans will enjoy the illustrations for sure. This was an enjoyable read and perfect for dino loving kiddos. Would be a great story any time of the year and an easy to read along or out loud.
