This book is about different dinosaurs, This book rhymes and teaches opposites.

The first thing I noticed about this book was the very bright and colorful illustrations! Just gorgeous. The story offers excellent contrasting words (ex. spiky and lumpy), though most aren't true opposite pairs. Nonetheless, it gives children great examples of various descriptive words and onomatopoeia. ( )

Teaches opposites through rhythmic, rhyming simple text. A good bit of vocabulary for little ones as well. ( )

We love this book. The illustrations are fun and bright, and the story is told in rhyme that is short and thankfully well-written. It's all about dinosaurs, which is an instant draw for kids, and focuses on antonyms by juxtaposing dinosaurs with opposite traits. The quality of the rhythm makes it a good choice for read aloud, and the ending is oodles of fun if you pretend to eat your audience just like the dinosaurs are chowing down. We always have a fun tickle fest at the end. I highly recommend this book for entry readers and the whole family. ( )

"Dinosaur fast, dinosaur slow". Dinosaur Roar is a delightful book using pictures of colorful and comical dinosaurs and rhyming to teach children about opposites. I really had fun reading this book and looking at the illustrations. The illustrations bring the dinosaurs to life and do a good job of illustrating emotions. When the text says, "Dinosaur sweet, dinosaur grumpy" the dinosaurs really do appear to be sweet or grumpy. With simple text and an average of two words per page the story is great for a quick read aloud or for independent reading for young children who have not yet developed advanced reading skills. Even children who are not yet literate will enjoy looking at the pictures on their own and contrasting the two different dinosaurs shown. ( )
