A new blog. A happy blog. A happy place to talk about our favorite board books. Our little girl recently learned how to walk, so now she’s able to grab a book, stumble-walk over and say, “Eh?”

A request I’m happy to fulfill. Especially when it is DINOSAUR vs. BEDTIME by Bob Shea.


It is SO much fun to read out loud– I mean, when the first page just screams, “ROAR! I’M A DINOSAUR!” you can’t read it in any other voice but a dinosaur’s. That first page also gets you a look from a kid who’s thinking, “What the…”

This book is about an unstoppable little dinosaur who conquers everything he encounters during his day. He ROARs his way through a pile of leaves, ROARs away talking grown-ups, and ROARs through his dinner (a nice & neat bowl of spaghetti, which he gives a good Chomp! Chomp! ROAR! ROAR! ROAR!)

By the time you find out if dinosaur conquers bedtime, your baby is left wanting MORE… or by that time has started roaring, because hey, Mama’s doing it.
