Books with Dinsosaurs as the Main Character

We love dinosaurs.  They are just non-stop fun and the stories that feature the stories that feature them delight us to the core.  Here are a few new ones hitting shelves this July and August thanks to MacMillan Publishers.

dogosaurus rexDogosaurus Rex
Ben can’t wait to adopt the best dog in the world. On a trip to the shelter, he sees dogs of all kinds, but none of them are quite right.
Then he finds Sadie. Sadie is big–really big. She says roar instead of woof and she doesn’t fit inside the house, but Ben knows she’s the best dog in the world. Now if only she could stop causing so much trouble!
This hilarious tale of a very special dog (with a prehistoric twist) will have you roaring just like Sadie.

Why We LOVE This Book:

  • Sadie is adorable and so loveable even though she is constantly stirring up mischief, but not on purpose.  She is after all just a dog who is learning to sit, roll over and fetch.

Hooray for books! They make me ROAR!

Doris the Bookasaurus thinks books are mega-dino-tastic! They make her spiky tail wiggle and her imagination soar.

Her boisterous little brothers, Max and T.J., do not agree. They want her to stop reading and play Chomp the Flag and STEGO Blocks . . . until Doris shares her pirate book aloud. Soon they’re using their imagination for on an epic adventure to Sharktooth bay.

With charming rhyming text about an adorable dinosaur family, Doris and her siblings show rambunctious readers everywhere that reading and playing go perfectly together!

Why We LOVE This Book:

  • Written in playful rhyme
  • Doris and her brothers are adorable characters
  • Shows the diversity found in books
  • Shows how reading can be educational and fun
