FEATURED BOOK: I'm A Hungry Dinosaur
Participants will listen to this read-aloud and receive a book to take home (while supplies last).
Sure to be one of your child's favorite kids activities at the festival!
From the award-winning team of Ann James and Janeen Brian comes I'm a Hungry Dinosaur, a gorgeous new rhyming picture book follow-up to I'm a Dirty Dinosaur. Illustrator Ann James traded in the dirt and mud she used in Dirty Dinosaur and instead had fun painting with flour, cocoa powder, frosting and sprinkles! Bright, simple illustrations, card stock pages, rounded corners, big and bold letters and a wonderful refrain just made for story time, makes this a perfect book for the very young. In I'm a Hungry Dinosaur, there's a lot of shaking and stirring, a lot of patting and spreading, then a lot of sitting and watching before it's time for sprinkling and icing, and then ... finally, chomping and chewing. The text invites audience participation and reader participation. It's just ... delicious! Shake, stir, mix, bake . . . . This little dinosaur just loves cake!
