pen this picture book and you'll long for the first snowfall. Watching all the dinos at exuberant play in a white landscape is enticing. Karma Wilson's cheerful verses describe the fun, while Laura Rader paints bright snowsuit and tuque colors onto snow shades of white and blue and purply grey.
t all begins, '
Dinos, dinos on the go. / Why are they out today? / To run and romp, / to slip and stomp / and ride their dino-sleigh.
' They're on skis and snowboards, snowshoes, and skates. And they're kind of dangerous, as they build the biggest (wobbly) '
snowman in the town
', and even cause an avalanche. That snowball fight looks like fun though, and I'll need one of those
s around here some time soon.
ead this book to little ones and they'll long for winter to settle in. And all that (exhausting) winter fun makes for a long night's sleep, nice for adults too. These dinos end up crashing in the snow after their hot chocolates - '
Now they're done / But, oh, what fun. / Today was dino-mite.
