10 Things I Love About Dinosaurs

Tiger Tales. Feb. 2024. 24p. Tr $10.99. ISBN 9781680102994.
K-Gr 2–For one young boy, dinosaurs are at the heart of everything he loves and does. From knowing what dinosaurs ate to understanding that the biggest dinosaurs did not always win, there are huge quantities of information to learn, with even more left to be discovered. And with a supportive family behind him, this boy is able to immerse himself in the world of dinosaurs to his heart’s content. From the first page, readers count all of the unnamed narrator’s favorite things about dinosaurs along with him, and each new entry is prefaced by its own number in a separate color from the rest of the text and in bold font. Following a short description of each item, additional text appears in speech bubbles before readers are guided to the next page by a brief line of text and ellipsis. Cheerful, cartoonlike images invite readers into the story in a welcoming way, and it is charming to observe how connected the narrator’s family becomes over the topic of dinosaurs. Filled with dinosaur facts, names, and even jokes, this book is one that young dinosaur fans and their families will appreciate reading together. At the end of the book, a brief pronunciation guide reminds readers of some of the more challenging vocabulary that appears in the story.
VERDICT This is a fun and lighthearted addition to library collections.
