I learned quite a bit about a variety of dinosaurs reading this book to my kindergarten students today! They loved the lift-the-flap surprises and the rhyming as that helped them guess what was under the flap. This went great for our dinosaur theme today for Picture Book Month.

An actually really rather informative book, Rumble, Roar, Dinosaur packs a lot of information into rhyme. A great idea, no? But the theory is better than the execution. Some of the rhymes are a little off. The illustrations are decent but unremarkable. It isn't bad, it just doesn't do enough to really stand out amongst the masses of children's books.
My nephew requested a dinosaur book, so I found this one for him. I'll let him speak for himself here. He said, "This book is awesome and cool! But, there's a problem. There are no T-Rexes." To a four year old, if you don't have a T-Rex, you don't have dinosaurs. :-) Still, this is a great book for pre-school kids or kindergarten students.
Nothing like a fun dinosaur lift the flap rhyming book for pre-schoolers where hadrosaurs honk, archaeopteryxes squawk, stegosauruses have nut-sized brains and those deinosuchuses the grandads of crocs haven't changed much since the prehistoric age. Fun book for any dinosaur fan.
I won this book in a giveaway through goodreads. What I received was hard to explain. It was a book that was not bound. It was all loose pages. There were certainly no "lift-the-flap" surprises. I ended up throwing it away because there wasn't even a reasonable way to read it.
