Dinosaur Rhyme Time - A Review

Our second book from Faber and Faber has arrived for review!

Our first, Hog in the Fog, is still a firm favourite in our house and I can recite most of it by memory... helpful when you are stuck in a traffic jam on a long car journey!

This next book is aimed at slightly younger readers, which is perfect now B is getting of an age to enjoy books too.

Dinosaur Rhyme Time is a collection of your favourite nursery rhymes and well known songs, illustrated with lovely soft illustrations of cute and cuddly dinosaurs in character.  Many of my friends have toddlers who are mad about dinosaurs therefore this is sure to be a hit with many families.

B absolutely adores being sung to, and C is more than happy to join in with the actions therefore this is a wonderful book we could enjoy on the sofa as a whole family!  All the songs are well known favourites, for example Twinkle Twinkle and The Wheels on the Bus, however having the book and illustrations to centre our song time on provides additional interest and a new twist.

I was slightly disappointed that only the first verse of each nursery rhyme is included however as neither C or B can read this is of little consequence to them.  I know most of the full versions off by heart therefore it is no issue for me to elaborate to the full version when singing.

I have someone in mind that this would make the perfect Christmas present for!
