Description

"It's a roaring reading party Pass out the sparkly beads, put on the catchy Mardi Gras tunes, and let the kids CHOMP CHOMP and STOMP STOMP to the infectious beat of Dinosaur Mardi Gras. A perfect read-aloud "
-John Schumacher, librarian, founder of MrSchuReads.com, a 2011 Library Journal Mover & Shaker

When carnival time rolls around, these big beasts begin to party. Notoceratops swings and swoons, while Spinosaurus taps his blue suede shoes and Brachiosaurus tosses colorful beads to the crowd below. From Lee Circle to Canal Street, follow these crazy creatures as they boogie down the parade route. Clever rhymes and repetition allow children to sing along to that mambo beat. A glossary, along with instructions for creating a shoebox Mardi Gras float, complete this vibrantly-illustrated book of festive fun.
