Dinosaur Roar by Paul and Henrietta Stickland is one of my favorite dino books for toddlers and preschoolers. This author, illustrator and pop up artist presents us with colorful and entertaining dinosaurs that introduce concepts like above/below, weak/strong, fast/slow, fierce/meek (etc.) in a rhyming text. It’s also full of fun vocabulary and an entertaining book to read aloud to young dinosaur enthusiasts.
