Storytime with Chantelle – Dinosaurs

DINOSAURS!

Hi there! Hope you are all well. What a busy few weeks we have had, the new library opened and school holidays have finished. Hope you are all enjoying the new Library. If you have visited us recently you may have noticed the giant T-Rex lurking in our foyer, he is actually a Thesaurus Rex 🙂 .

I found this on the interwebs, it made me giggle or should I say cachinnate, snort, guffaw, titter, chortle or laugh …

Books

Dinosaurs as a theme is lots of fun and noisy – ever heard a group of 40 children roar like dinosaurs? ‘Tis rambunctious!!
Last week at storytime we read some great dinosaur books. The two below were the crowd favourites; both books are hilarious and have lovely, vibrant illustrations that encouraged interaction with the children.

P.S. These books would make excellent gifts, as you may be aware there are only (I’m going to drop the C bomb) 58 days until CHRISTMAS!!!

There’s T. Rex gobbling sausages! Stegosaurus spilling beans! Apatosaurs chucking frozen peas are filling the aisles with greens…
A rip-roaring story about a boy whose trip to the supermarket is far from boring.

Dinosaurs were all wiped out, a long way back in history. No one knows quite how or why, now this book solves the mystery…

Rhyme

Dinosaur dinosaur turn around,

Dinosaur dinosaur touch the ground,

Dinosaur dinosaur reach up high,

Dinosaur dinosaur touch the sky,

Dinosaur dinosaur bend down low,

Dinosaur dinosaur touch your toes,

Dinosaur  dinosaur have a ROAR!!!!!!!!
