Dinosaurs: Poems Reviews
Personal response I think that this is a great book filled with many poems about dinosaurs. The poems range in type and tone, but they all give different types of information about dinosaurs and their lives. Some of the poems are silly, while some are more serious. I think that they do a great job at explaining dinosaurs in a fun way. I think that the black and white pictures compliment the poems well because it gives the old and prehistoric feeling that we think about when we think of dinosaurs. PurposeThis would be a great read aloud book for grades 1-3. It could be used with a unit on dinosaurs or prehistoric times. The teacher could even read a poem or two each day that covered the specific topic that they would be discussing. I think that the students would really enjoy all of the poems and learn a lot from them. This would capture their attention more than teaching from a text book. The poems use strong language such as "gnomes," "pygmy," and "dabbled."
Ummm. . .dinosaurs. Need we say more? What three or four-year-old is not captivated by these ancient creatures. Ladder this one up with Jane Yolen's "dinosaur" series or with Weisner's ART AND MAX, but whatever you do, try to get your hands on this Hopkins collection of notable children's poets reflecting upon reptilian giants.On a side note, I love that Mr. Hopkins himself shared with me that the book is illustrated in black and white scratches as Murray Tinkelman, the illustrator, was/is colorblind. I love these kind of insights, don't you?"Fossils" by Lilian MooreOlder thanbooks,than scrolls,olderthan the first talestoldor thefirst wordsspokenare the storiesin forests thatturned to stonein ice wallsthat trapped themammothin the longbones of--dinosaursthe fossil storiesthat beginOnce upon a time
