Here We Go Digging for Dinosaur Bones

Charlesbridge. Mar. 2020. 32p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781623541040.
K-Gr 2–Lendroth’s nonfiction picture book is both a great read-aloud and a fun source of information. The main text mimics the children’s song “This Is the Way,” but instead of brushing teeth, readers are digging for bones, sifting through dirt, and cleaning bones. Smaller text on each page offers more details about the work the diverse cast of childlike paleontologists is doing. Bright digital illustrations make the story engaging and accessible for young readers. Additional facts about dinosaurs are included at the end of the book. Suggested movements to act out the story are also mentioned.
VERDICT This is a perfect book for a dinosaur storytime.
