Creature count : a prehistoric rhyme
Huante, Brenda
Easy Picture Book HUANTE

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals take center stage in Huante's debut, a counting book that riffs on the "Over in the Meadow" rhyme. A mother T. rex and her "terrible rexes six" shake the earth with their "booms"; a mother triceratops munches vines with "her frilly little nine"; and a maisaur urges her babies to crack through their shells: "?`Hatch!' said the mother. `We hatch!' said the ten./ So they hatched and they cuddled in their nest in a glen." Nguyen (Buzz) creates gentle dinosaur families that almost look like they've been molded from clay; their softly rounded features should appeal to toddlers not yet ready for more realistic dinosaurs. Ages 3-up. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
