KIRKUS REVIEW

What happens when dinosaurs decide to spend the day in the snow? Engaging in all the wintertime favorites, they build snowmen, ski, snowboard, ice skate, sled, toboggan and engage in snowball fights. Younger listeners will enjoy the rhyming verse: “Stegosaurus skates superbly. / Watch her glide with grace. / The crowd lets out a mighty cheer. / She’s sure to win first place!” While still amusing, dinosaur body type and winter activity rarely correlate. The dinosaurs themselves range from the well known and easily identifiable (even in their winter gear) T. rex and Triceratops to the little known Barapasaurus, Dilophosaurus, Supersauras and Geranaosaurus. These last few might send young readers to the library to learn more. Rader’s illustrations are filled with cute cartoon dinosaurs having fun and running amok—their manners are not the best. Dinosaur fans will sit through one reading, but that might be it. (Picture book. 4-7)
