Imagine if instead of getting the usual lollipop or sticker everywhere you go, there was something bigger on offer… something much, much bigger! This is exactly what happens when a little boy accompanies his mum on a busy shopping trip. Just when the little boy thinks he's going to die of boredom, something very unusual happens… shops everywhere are giving away a very special treat with every purchase ~ a free dinosaur! It's a dream come true… except, what exactly do you do with these Jurassic treats? And how do you convince mum to let you keep them?
Bones. Bones. We look for bones. We look for the bones of dinosaurs. Six small paleontologists search for bones. When they find them, they dig them up, wrap them, and load them on a truck, bound for the museum. There, they carefully put together the bones of a giant dinosaur. In bright, bold, exuberant pictures, with a text that is just right for reading or chanting aloud, Byron Barton looks at just what happens to the bones left behind by dinosaurs of long, long ago.
What happens when scientists from outer space test a new brain-developing product on dinosaurs, educate them, and drop them off in the middle of New York City's Thanksgiving Day Parade? "Readers five and up will adore the off-beat humor of this prehistoric tour de force." --Parents Magazine. This is the book on which Steven Spielberg's movie was based.

Ten terrible dinosaurs standing in a line, soon began to mess about until there were... nine. This lively counting book, first published in 1997 and now reissued as a new edition, is based on the characters from Dinosaur Roar!, a picture book that is now recognised as a modern classic. The rhyming text encourages children to join in, helping them to learn their numbers as they count down from 10 to 1, ending with a wonderful loud ROAR!
With a lively rhyming text and vibrant paper collage illustrations, author-artist Bob Barner shakes the dust off the dinosaur bones found in museums and reminds us that they once belonged to living, breathing creatures. Filled with fun dinosaur facts (a T. Rex skull can weigh up to 750 pounds!) and an informational "Dinometer," Dinosaur Bones is sure to make young dinosaur enthusiasts roar with delight.
