Our dinosaur friends get woken up from their nap where they run down the volcano into the arms of their family. We Are The Dinosaurs is a picture book that the 6 and under set will love. One concern we had is that reading the book would encourage children to stand up and do the song. We read the book many times to a class of pre-K students and that didn’t happen once.
They all sat on their bottoms, asked to see the pictures, gestured with their arms and pumped their legs (as they sat criss cross apple sauce thank you very much). This is the same class that performed the song for the fall school presentation, so I know that they know and love the song. Yet, they were perfectly content to sit back, re-live the story, listen to someone read a great book with big, dinosaur pictures as they used their imagination.
