Dinosaurs' Halloween: 03/06/07
Dinosaurs' Halloween is one of four books we purchased at Gold Beach Books on our recent trip into Oregon. Sean and I picked it out because he had been studying dinosaurs at school. We were both drawn to the book almost simultaneously and having read it together a couple of times, we're glad we decided to grab it.
Dinosaurs live among us in Dinosaurs' Halloween and their children enjoy trick-or-treating just as much as the human children. The hunt for candy and the fun of wearing costumes brings together a human, a dog and a dinosaur for a night of fun and a lasting friendship.
At the back of the book the author lists two pages of information about dinosaurs (real and imagined). Some of the information is out of date (brontosaurus instead of brachiasaurus, for example) and some of it is completely made up (but is at least marked as such). These two pages are a fun stepping stone to encourage young readers to ask questions about dinosaurs and hopefully seek out other books to read about them.
