Children's Book Review: Dini Dinosaur
Written by: Karen Beaumont
Illustrated by: Daniel Roode
Published by: Greenwillow Books, 2012
This energetic and silly picture book, by the author of such preschool bestsellers as "I Ain't Going to Paint No More," is ideal for toddlers who love to get messy and the moms who get them clean again.
* The jacket cover of this book recommends this book for kids ages 2-5. My husband ended up reading this to our 3 1/2 year-old, dinosaur loving son one night. Told in rhyme, this book tells the story of Dini Dinosaur, who must take a bath before bed. He goes into the bath with all of his clothes on and his mama has to keep sending him back into the tub because he forgets to take his shoes off, his pants off, etc. While we've read other books by Karen Beaumont, this wasn't a favorite, though little kids (like my son) will probably enjoy it as a bedtime story.
