Dinosaur vs. Bedtime

Author & Illustrator:   Bob Shea
Publisher:  Hyperion Books for Children
Publication Year:   2008
Location: Knox County Public Library- Powell

Awards:   2008 Horn Book Fanfare, Best Books for Preschoolers, Amazon Best Book of the Year

Summary:  Dinosaur meets everything in his day and wins against it, including the boring grown-ups; but bedtime proofs to be his toughest match yet. The illustrations include childlike drawings of the dinosaur in collages along with pictures of real items (My daughter's favorite was the dinasaur vs. spaghetti!) This book is so much fun to read aloud, as Dinosaur "roars" his way through the day!

Classroom Ideas: Each child could think of something that dinosaur could encounter in his own daily life and illustrate their idea. All of the pages could be put together to make a class book. (And of course roar and snore are onomatopeia)
