Crunch the Shy Dinosaur

Cirocco Dunlap

Crunch is a lovely and quiet brontosaurus who has hidden himself in some shubbery and is rather shy. He would like to play, but it will require some gentle coaxing from you! If you are patient and encouraging, you will find yourself with a new friend! This picture book is a warm, funny example of how to engage with someone new, who is perhaps a bit different from you. Lessons in friend-making (such as minding personal space and demonstrating interest in another's hobbies) are delivered so subtly that children will absorb them unconsciously as they delight in Crunch's silly hat and dance moves!

Some Dinosaurs Are Small

Charlotte Voake

The concept of size is relative -- and takes on prehistoric proportions -- in a funny and reassuring tale from a maven of children's books. Some dinosaurs are small and slow. They take their time in the prehistoric jungle, collecting fruits and leaves and using their tiny teeth to munch them. Some dinosaurs are big and fast. With huge teeth and claws, they steal food from small dinosaurs, and they're always hungry for more. So when three big dinosaurs come across one small one, what -- or who -- can save the little plant-eater? Beautifully drawn and brightly colored, Charlotte Voake's imaginative introduction to the concept of size brims with visual humor and culminates in a sweet surprise ending.
