Top five Dinosaur Picture Books

Updated: Jun 26

#1 Bron­to­ri­na by James Howe; illustrated by Randy Cecil.


Brontorina has a dream. She wants to dance. But Brontorina is rather large -- too large to fit in Madame Lucille's dance studio. Brontorina does not have the right shoes, and everyone knows you can't dance without the proper footwear. Still, Brontorina knows, deep in her heart, that she is meant to be a ballerina. James Howe introduces a lovable dinosaur whose size is outmatched only by her determination, and whose talent is outmatched only by her charm. Accompanied by Randy Cecil's beguiling illustrations, here is an irresistible story that proves that no problem is too big when the heart and imagination know no bounds.



When Regina's mother heads off to hunt, she tells her little dinosaur: stay in the nest and be mama's good little carnivore. But just who is she calling little?! Regina is big! And she has all the tools to hunt herself: a fear-inducing predator stare, a terrifying roar, and an uncanny ability to camouflage. And so, Regina sets off on her first real hunt, all alone. ROAR! Along the way, she meets some truly huge dinosaurs, and hilariously, and miserably, fails at catching anything. What if she has to live her life as an.... herbivore?! Little kids everywhere will recognize themselves in Andrea Zuill's intrepid young dino--eager for independence, but still very much needing the safety and comfort of home.


#3 Tiny T. Rex and the Im­pos­si­ble Hug by Jonathan Stutzman; illustrated by Jay Fleck


Tiny T. Rex has a HUGE problem. His friend Pointy needs cheering up, and only a hug will do. But with his short stature and teeny T. Rex arms, is a hug impossible? Not if Tiny has anything to say about it! Join this plucky little dino in his very first adventure-a warm and funny tale that proves the best hugs come from the biggest hearts.




 

#4 Ice Cream and Dinosaurs by Eric Litwin; illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld.


Groovy Joe is a fun-loving dog with a tub full of ice cream--which he shares with his unexpected dinosaur guests.













Dinosaur is spending the day with Mommy. ROAAR! He helps her wake up, go shopping, sort laundry, and more--his way, that is. By bedtime, it looks like Mommy is down for the count. Is one little red dinosaur just too much for her, or will Mommy win? Chock full of the bold graphics and exuberance that has made the Dinosaur vs. series so popular, favorite funny man Bob Shea delivers another winner--for both little dinosaurs, and mommies everywhere!
