For Christmas….Tyrannosaurus Drip
Today’s recommendation for Christmas is for those of you with young children….Tyrannosaurus Drip by Julia Donaldson. Firstly, Donaldson is an excellent writer of kids’ books. I have several at home and they can be read out loud at bedtime again and again. Room on the Broom is a particular favourite in my household and The Gruffalo is loved around the world.
Children love dinosaurs and there seems to be an unending appetite for books about them. Kids seem to love the fact that dinosaurs were huge animals that once ruled the Earth. This book tells the story of a placid duckbill dinosaur’s egg that ends up in the wrong nest and, after hatching, the dinosaur is nicknamed Tyrannosaurus Drip by his new scary family.
I’d also recommend Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp as another great present.
