Back to school books are a fun tradition for new students and returning students alike. A theme that we’ve noticed in the back to school books we’ve received this year is dinosaurs!
How Do Dinosaurs Go to School? by Jane Yolen
Everyone’s favorite dinosaurs are back, and this time they are going to school. More fun dinosaur antics await. These prehistoric pupils are in a class of their own! As in their previous books, Yolen and Teague capture children’s rambunctious natures with playful read-aloud verse and wonderfully amusing pictures.
What would you do if a very large Ceratosaurus stomped into your classroom? And what if the student sitting next to you was a gigantic Silvisaurus, who decided to jump on top of the desk? Come along and join the fun as dinosaurs ride the bus, read their favorite books, and have fun on the playground with all their friends. Filled with entertaining details and familiar scenes, each illustration includes the name of the featured dinosaur hidden in the picture. Going to school has never been so much fun!
When Dinosaurs Go to School by Linda Martin
What happens when dinosaurs go to school? After goodbye hugs and a quick bus ride, they spend the day playing and learning. They mix up squishy fingerpaints, practice playing tuba, munch prickly pizza, brave the dino-slide, and look forward to another day of school. With her funny, rhyming text and hilarious illustrations, Linda Martin invites everyone to see just how cool-osaurus school can be.
Dinosaur vs School by Bob Shea
Dinosaur is starting preschool today. ROAR! There are new friends to meet, dress-up outfits to wear, glitter and googly eyes to paste, musical instruments to play, and snacks to eat. What’s not to like? But then, oh, no! It’s Dinosaur vs. Clean-up Time! Fortunately, when friends work together, EVERYONE WINS!
