Yesterday was Dinosaur Day at Storytime! We read fiction and nonfiction about these giant creatures. Dini Dinosaur by  was a funny story about a dinosaur taking a bath. What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night by Refe Tuma was about toy dinosaurs who came to life and made huge messes all over the house while the family slept. In T. Rex by Vivian French, a boy learns interesting facts about dinosaurs while he and his grandfather visit an exhibit at a museum. Our final book, When Dinosaurs Came With Everything by Elise Broach, told of a child's glee at getting a free dinosaur with every purchase or service. Wow!

For our craft, we made our own dinosaur. Green or brown (or both!) papers were collaged onto both sides of a cardstock dinosaur shape, then googly eyes were added. We stood him up on toilet paper roll feet, then attached clothespin spikes to his back. 

RAWR! This was such a successful session that it will be repeated tomorrow as this month's Storytime Saturday!
