Hello, friends! Our book today is Twinkle, Twinkle, Dinosaur, written by Jeffrey Burton and illustrated by Zoe Waring, a sweet board book that combines a familiar melody with one of our favorite types of creature!
Part of a series of “Twinkle, Twinkle” reimaginings, (other books feature a unicorn and a fairy friend), our story starts off with an adorable little green theropod dino as he is waved off by his parents to another day of play. He frolics with other dino species like a sauropod, pterosaurs, and a ceratopsid, watches an erupting volcano, and of course, lets out the occasional mighty roar. When day is done, he returns home to his parents, who tuck him into his nest for a cozy night’s sleep.
Adorable. Any little dino lover will delight at the friendly-faced dinosaurs and gentle storytelling. Using such a well-known melody and accessible language allows little readers to join in from the get-go, and simple, colorful illustrations are engaging and fun. It’s a short read, only two verses, making it a great bedtime story for smaller bookworms. JJ loved this one, we had fun reading it together, and it’s Baby Bookworm approved!
