Dinosaur Bones

With a lively rhyming text and vibrant paper collage illustrations, author-artist Bob Barner shakes the dust off the dinosaur bones found in museums and reminds us that they once belonged to living, breathing creatures. Filled with fun dinosaur facts (a T. Rex skull can weigh up to 750 pounds!) and an informational “Dinometer,” Dinosaur Bones is sure to make young dinosaur enthusiasts roar with delight. Along with the rhyming, read-aloud text comes nearly 30 fun and amazing facts about dinosaurs. Also included is a “Dinometer,” describing information about different dinosaurs such as its height, weight and footprint size. Best-selling artist Bob Barner has been very well reviewed by magazines such as School Library Journal and Publishers Weekly. His other books have sold a total of over 100,000 copies: Dem Bones; Bugs! Bugs! Bugs!; To Everything; Walk the Dog Bob Barner is an active self-promoter and spends much of the year doing school visits and signings.
