What if the dinosaurs never really went extinct?
What if they've just been in hiding for 65 million years?
Why you should read it:
There are many levels and many reasons to enjoy author Stephen Krensky's tale of DINOSAURS IN DISGUISE. The story itself is told through the eyes of a young "explorer" on a hunt to prove his hypothesis that dinosaurs never became extinct, but are hiding somewhere in the world all around us. It's just up to us to coax these timid creatures out into the open.
Such a whimsical theme is enhanced by the colorfully detailed artwork of illustrator Lynn Munsinger. Whether it's a desert sphinx or even a participant in the first thanksgiving feast, readers will enjoy discovering the many ways dinosaurs have made their way into our more modern world through Ms. Munsinger's illustrations.
Even early elementary educators will find DINOSAURS IN DISGUISE of great use in their classrooms as children will love the guessing math work of determining just how many hidden dinosaurs can be found on each page.
Our imaginations are allowed to run wild and the possibilities are endless in this delightful picture book. It not only challenges young readers to search for the hidden dinosaurs lurking all around them, but to also join one young man's promise to keep those hiding places a secret...at least for now...
A great addition to any home library!
