Since Nursery School had a dinosaur theme a while back, Monkey has been obsessed with them. You’ve all seen the evidence when a stick becomes a dinosaur bone! So when I heard that Dinosaur Roar! was celebrating its 20th birthday, I knew we had to have a look at it. We received a paperback 20th Anniversary edition of Dinosaur Roar! It had been published along with a hardback version in association with the Natural History Museum. Written and illustrated by Paul and Henrietta Stickland, this book is a must for any dinosaur fan. We’ve recently borrowed Ten Terrible Dinosaurs from the Library, and Monkey recognised the similar illustrations immediately. Stegosaurus Mummy! Roar! Yes, he was off. Dinosaur Roar! is beautifully illustrated, as you would expect from Stickland. The rhyming text is simple and effective and is a fun way to introduce younger children to opposites. We’ve read Dinosaur Roar! over and over again since it arrived. Monkey giggles his way through it every time, especially when he reaches ‘Dinosaur fat’ – Daddy, he has a big tummy just like you!! You can imagine how much Daddy P appreciated that remark. If you have an iPhone or iPad there is also a Dinosaur Roar! app you can download which looks like lots of fun. I have a feeling that we might be buying this soon, it’s only £1.99 and I’m sure Monkey will love it. There is also a Dinosaur Roar! competition on Facebook for any dinosaur fan to record and share their own Dinosaur Roar. Monkey has emailed in his entry, but you can also share on Facebook or Twitter. We love this book, I’m sure Dinosaur Roar! will be celebrating many more birthdays in the years ahead. disclaimer: we were sent this book in exchange for an honest review.
