Opening: One day Danny went to the museum. he wanted to see what was inside.

DannyDino1Why I like this book: It’s a favorite of my youth and a classic easy reader with excellent read-aloud-ability for a toddler storytime. The illustrations are just right for kids learning to read through both word and pictures.

DannyDino2.jpgResources/Activities: for a dinosaur theme read together with Edwina, the Dinosaur Who Didn’t Know She Was Extinct/Mo Willems, and We Are the Dinosaurs/Laurie Berkner and Ben Clanton.
