Dino Shape Up! Dinoshapes (Alphaprints) by Roger Priddy
T. REX IS A VERY HAPPY MOTHER
HATCHING TWO EGGS--REXY AND HER BROTHER.
In Roger Priddy's newest in his Alphaprints series, Alphaprints: Dinoshapes (Priddy Books/St. Martin's Press, 2016) Priddy gives us a different way to see Tyrannosaurus Rex, That traditional reptilian bad guy is seen as a proud mother of twins. Other dinosaurs appear in short order. Baronyx, Diplodicus, Tricerotops, Ankylosaurus, and Pterodactyl also make cameo appearances, all represented in raised fingerprint shapes, the tactile star of their own two-page spreads in bright colors, with pronunciation guides, each one doing his own thing, from eating starfish to playing soccer.
In this colorful board book, Priddy even offers a bit of dino humor, with a succession of big beast bites taken right out of the cover and each page,providing a thumb-index to each dino. It's a fun way to introduce the most popular dinosaurs to preschoolers who dote on the big critters.
