While looking up author birthdays recently, I made a discovery! Mark Teague, the children’s book illustrator, had a birthday yesterday on February 10th. Jane Yolen, the prolific children’s book author, has her birthday today on February 11th. Mark and Jane collaborated on the well-known dinosaur series of picture books. So let’s celebrate their collective birthdays with some dino activities! Here are two terrific activities to go with their picture book, How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon? (It’s a particularly good book to read during flu season.)
Engage youngster’s prior knowledge with this pre-reading activity!
Print an adorable dino booklet that goes with the story!
