FEATURE✨ “What happens when a gigantic egg appears in your backyard and out pops a dinosaur! Surely one pet dinosaur is more than enough?” Dino lovers will adore this book, and you know it’s one to look out for when it's recommended by @picturebooksblogger. Thanks for letting us share.

FEATURE✨ Another great recommendation from @astoryaday. Toby and the Ice Giants, by Joe Lillington.
.

A perfect marriage of fiction and non-fiction literature. Throughout the fictional story Toby, a young bison, explores the Ice Age Tundra. As he explores he meets many new and fascinating animals, such as a woolly rhinoceros, a megatherium, a woolly mammoth, a glyptodon, a smilodon, a short-faced bear, a teratorn, and humans. As he interacts with each new creature he learns many intriguing facts that he had never known. As for the non-fictional aspect of the book... Each animal that was introduced showed an illustration of that animal's size compared to an adult male, size measurements, weight, diet, habitat, when that creature died out, and two to three small paragraphs giving additional details that were specific to that animal. At the end of the story all of the characters line up and compare each other in size to that of two young children. There is also a glossary of vocabulary, that the author uses throughout the book, at the end of the story. Side note: all measurements are Metric, so some conversions will be necessary. The story is illustrated in mute, gentle, earth tone colors and the illustrations span from page to page. This story is perfect for children who love dinosaurs, the ice age, and learning facts about animals.

FEATURE✨ DINO BLOCK, by Christopher Franceschelli with art by Peskimo. It's PREHISTORIC month over on @kidlitpicks and this engaging book is a new favourite. The format goes: "I am small like a turkey... but with the l-o-n-g-e-s-t name of all. I am a Micropachycephalosaurus." Try saying that 3 times. This format makes the book fascinating because you're curious to find out which dinosaur has the special features of things we know in today's world. Swipe to see how it works. The comparisons to things children know really brings home the true nature of the different dinosaurs. Eg. "I am tall like a six storey building.." and "I am heavy like three full cement trucks..." The die-cuts allow us to run our fingers over the shape of the dinosaurs and the vintage style illustrations are a visual feast.

FEATURE✨ Photo and review by @readingisourthing. Muted colours, engaging illustrations, fun facts and flaps, quirky, cute, curious characters, LOVE it all!! It’s a night at the museum to be remembered. A story time to be repeated.
.

A young boy named Oscar is woken by noises outside his window. When he peeks beyond the curtain, he sees a woolly mammoth. Introductions are made, and we discover that Timothy the mammoth is looking for his baby brother, Teddy. Oscar helps Timothy. Their search takes them through The Curious Museum, which comes alive for one magical hour every night. Readers can help find Teddy, lifting flaps and learning facts along the way. “Did you know? The smallest book in the world fits on half a poppy seed.” And, “An adult Triceratops’ head could grow up to 2.5 metres long.”
.

Will they find Teddy before the magical hour is up? You can count on a happy ending with this one, and much more—wonderful surprises with every turn, a new friendship, a joyous adventure, and there’s a plush toy!!!

FEATURE✨ Thanks @thereadingmother for sharing this FANTASTIC news. Nibbles is back!!
.

There's a little book monster that Nibbled his way into our hearts since Day 1... flipping through the cut out pages while we chase Nibbles in and out of classic fairy tales- books within books, peek inside flaps, and our very favorite part (spoiler alert!) he escapes!! And now... the sequel we've been waiting for is a Dinosaur Guide?!?? Does it get much better? I think not. Nibbles: The Dinosaur Guide, by @emmayarlett and @littletigerbooks coming September 7.

FEATURE✨ Today’s Magnificent share is from @storyaday. This is truly a keepsake that you will revisit time and again! The illustrations are breathtaking and will be adored by anyone who cracks this book open.
.

The Magnificent Book of Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Creatures, is a must have for any young paleontologist. Children will be able to explore a range of fascinating dinosaurs as they flip the pages of this book. There are thirty six dinosaurs featured in large two page spreads. Each spread has about six to seven key facts about that specific dinosaur. Along with fascinating information there is a fact file that includes where each dinosaur could be found, the meaning of its name, its length and weight, what time period it lived on Earth, what their diet consisted of, and a size comparison of each dinosaur to a human adult male.

FEATURE✨ Our first share this month comes from dino fanatics, @fee_loves_
.

We are mad for dinosaurs here and a current favourite of Michael's is Joe Illington's 'Neffy and the Feathered Dinosaurs'. We follow 'Neffy' a young Microraptor who is about to leave her nest for the first time along with her sisters. On this first attempt at flight, she crashes to the jungle floor and loses her sisters but meets several different types of feathered dinosaurs and not all friendly. Adventure ensues!
.

This books is great for those kids that want more than just a story, but some cold hard facts too and Neffy delivers. Each dinosaur we meet receives a section of facts about size, diet, habitat, family, location, when they lived and a brief description. The endpapers provide maps of the world during the Cretaceous Period and markers where the feathered dinosaurs lived within it. Both the introduction and ending of the book touches briefly on what we know about these animals and what happened to them. The illustrations are a stand out with moody saturated colours with a soft, smudgy effect. I could not recommend this book more highly.

Our new theme for June is… PREHISTORIC! Chosen and introduced by @storyaday
.

Get ready to explore the past...the prehistoric past. This month we will be digging into prehistoric life, dinosaurs, fossils, and those who speak for creatures long since past.
.

An American Paleontologist named Robert T. Bakker once said, "It's very simple why kids are crazy about dinosaurs -- dinosaurs are nature's Special Effects. They are the only real dragons. Kids love dragons. It's not just being weirdly shaped and being able to eat Buicks. It's that they are real." He is completely correct, children and adults alike are fascinated by the mammoth sized creatures that tower over us in museums. We are always in awe of the creatures that once roamed the Earth 230 MILLION years ago!

FEATURE 🌼🌷🌸🌻 If you love books and flowers, then you’ll also love @bookbloom. Miranda chose the #kidlitpicks theme for May, and shared the three wonderful Flower Books above. Head to @bookbloom to read each review and, if you’re not already, follow along.

FEATURE 🌼 During May, the @kidlitpicks community have been featuring books about #flowers. Footpath Flowers is loved by many and was recommendaed by @ohcreativeday 🌼🌻🌹🌷🌸
.

This is now officially the book I have Instagrammed the most. Rarely do I feature a book more than once but this wordless wonder has been trotted out several times. It reminds us to stop and appreciate the little moments in every day. To notice the flowers growing in the cracks of the pavement. I also love that the Canadian government pledged to give a copy of this book to every arriving Syrian child refugee. A book that promotes kindness for all. #footpathflowers @sydneydraws @groundwoodbooks
