Perfect Picture Book Friday: DINO’S PAJAMA PARTY
Happy Friday, dear friends. Today’s featured book is sure to please the kiddos…as well as moms and dads who are trying to get their little ones to bed…and teachers who are looking for a fun rhyming read-aloud. The author, Laurie Wallmark, is a dear friend of mine and is better known for her narrative nonfiction biographies about strong women…but oh my goodness…she is multitalented for sure! You are going to love this one!
DINO’S PAJAMA PARTY
Written by Laurie Wallmark
Illustrated by Michael Robertson
Published by Running Press Kids (2021)
Themes: Dinosaurs, bedtime, rhyme
Synopsis: From Amazon:
Much like us, dinosaurs love to have fun. Dinosaurs from all around gather together to play instruments, dance, and sing before bedtime. But soon the dinosaurs grow tired and need their rest. This is a book that’s sure to have kids following the dinos’ lead as they get ready to go to sleep.
WHY I LOVE THIS BOOK:
- This is a great read-aloud for home or school.
- The text is filled with action verbs and a rollicking rhythm.
- The illustrations are delightful – bold and full of fun!
Kids really do love dinosaurs and they will love trying some of these amazing dinosaur crafts and activities: https://kidsactivitiesblog.com/67920/50-dinosaur-crafts-activities/
Please remember that the best way we can tell an author that we love her book is to buy a copy, review it, tell friends about it, ask your local library to purchase copies for their collection. DINO’S PAJAMA PARTY launches on October 19th…and is available for pre-order!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! The New England Fall Foliage is in full bloom…quite a spectacular sight!
