Pick of the Week: A Number of Dinosaurs

A Number of Dinosaurs: a Pop-Up Counting Book by Paul & Henrietta Stickland
Paul Stickland has written and illustrated several great dinosaur books that toddlers just love. Stickland's new pop-up book with Henrietta Stickland features his usual large, brightly colored dinosaurs. This simple concept book counts from 1 to 10, with each page showing a larger number and dinosaur on each consecutive page. By the end, the number and dinosaurs spill off the page! Check out this fun dinosaur pop-up book (while it lasts!). Many children love pop-up books, but the delicate design of one means it often doesn't hold up as well as other hardback books with multiple check-outs. But we certainly try our best at the library to mend these books and keep them on the shelves for everyone to enjoy and check out as long as possible!

I didn't know about this new one from Paul Stickland - my kids love his earlier ones so this one is bound to be a hit with the added bonus of popup bits!
