I love Bob Shea’s Dinosaur books- Dinosaur vs. the Potty and Dinosaur vs. Bedtime so much. They are witty and clever, but short and perfect for young readers. So, when I saw that there was a video of him reading one of his books and showing a new book, I was super excited. Then I watched the video from the Texas Literary Death Match and laughed uncontrollably for a few minutes (of course, that could be sleep deprivation).
This is well worth a watch, especially his “new book.”
I am SO stealing the line about if you don’t want to, pretend you’re doing it ironically for my teens! I was so excited about the video and books, I have been saying “Dinosaur WINS!” every time something goes well all week long. Seriously- help a patron, dinosaur WINS! Find a missing book, dinosaur WINS! Get a reluctant reader to be excited about the summer reading program, dinosaur WINS!!!
