grandma's bookshelf - Snappy little Dinosaurs - I'm Giving One Away!

As I've said before, I LOVE pop-up books! Now days there are many pop-ups available for you to enjoy with your grandchildren. I particularly enjoyed a new pop-up book sent to me by Silver Dolphin Books - Snappy little Dinosaurs - and so did my grandson!

Snappy little Dinosaurs  
Author - Beth Harwood
Illustrator - Derek Matthews
Paper Engineering by - Richard Hawke
Pubisher - Silver Dolphin Books
Ages - 3+

Favorite Features -
  • Love the pop-ups! Be sure to have your grandchildren "roar!" with the last dino!  There are ten pop-ups in this book
  • I appreciate the information on each dino - nine of them in this book
  • I also appreciated the help for the pronunciation for the dino's names!
  • colorful, fun illustrations - loved them!
  • I especially appreciated how this book about dinos did not push evolution
Snappy little Dinosaurs is a fun book to enjoy with your grandchildren and a great way to introduce them to dinos! As you enjoy this book with your grandchildren, be sure to talk with them about how God created dinosaurs! As you look at each of the nine dinos in this book, ask them why they think God created each one to look as it did and point out how the Diplodocus was able to reach the leaves it ate at the top of the trees because God created it with a long neck! Ask them if they think maybe God gave the Triceratops it's three horns and the Stegosaurus it's spines to help protect them since they lived close to the ground and were slower-moving dinos. Give them some paper and crayons and ask them what a dino would look like if they were able to create one, then have them draw it!

Snappy little Dinosaurs is a book you and your grandchildren are sure to enjoy! I'm delighted to say, not only did Silver Dolphin Books send one for me to review - which Josiah promptly took home! :^) - but they also sent an additional book for me to give away! I want to try and do this give-away a little different, so if you would like to be included in this give-away - which will be on September 6, 2012, please comment below. If you have "liked" grandma's cookie jar using the tab in the "find us on facebook" box ON THE BLOG, have followed with Google Friend Connect, and/or follow grandma's cookie jar by email, please also let me know this in your comment as well - you'll receive an additional entry for each of these if you have done them. I'm thinking by holding the give-away this way, I'll be drawing names from among those who would like to win the item - in this case, Snappy little Dinosaurs! :^) Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know - and if you do share this post, please let me know this in your comment as well and you'll receive an additional entry for sharing, too!
