Dini Dinosaurby Karen Beaumont
Synopses & Reviews
Dirty Dini Dinosaur is covered with mud from head to toe. But when he tries to take a bath . . .
Silly Dini Dinosaur, what are you up to now?
A bubbly bathtime and bedtime book for toddlers and dinosaur fans of all ages.
"Even youngest toddlers will guess what's coming next in this bath-time story about a baby dinosaur who neglects to take off his clothes before getting cleaned up. When Mama announces that muddy Dini Dinosaur needs to bathe before bedtime, he is happy to comply: 'Dirty Dini Dinosaur/ splashed in the tub/ He tried to wash his feet/ with a... scrub-a-dub-dub!/ Silly Dini Dinosaur!/ Don't you know?/ You have to take your shoes off... Ã¢Â€Â˜Back you go!'' Beaumont (Where's My T-R-U-C-K?) repeats her buoyant, nursery rhyme — style pattern for Dini's pants, shirt, and hat; finally, Dini's mother gives him a thorough scrubbing of his horns, back, scales, and toenails, before tucking him in for the night. Though there's no real drama — Dini is a willing bathgoer, and mama is none too upset about Dini's clothes, which get sparklingly clean in the process — Roode's cheerful digital artwork, which is stylistically in keeping with his Little Bea books, features lots of smiles, bubbles, and hugs that work well with the book's sweet-natured, end-of-the-day vibe. Ages 2 — 5." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
