We’re going to keep it short and sweet this Monday after a working weekend and a night bereft of sleep. So follows an unequivocal recommendation that you read to your young one Dinosaur Roar by Paul and Henrietta Strickland.
Dinosaur Roar is full of simple rhymes that also teach the concept of opposites.
Dinosaur Roar / Dinosaur Squeak
Dinosaur Fierce / and Dinosaur Meek
Dinosaur Sweet, Dinosaur Grumpy/ Dinosaur Spikey, Dinosaur Lumpy
You get the idea. The rhymes roll off the tongue and the dinosaurs are charming and colorful. This was Zeke’s favorite for quite some time during the first year and he still asks for it from time to time. This will delight the younger crowd and come back around when it’s time to start learning to read1.
1 Plus, seriously, dinosaurs! What kid doesn’t like dinosaurs?
