I recently had the pleasure of reading an advanced copy of a new picture book by author Laurie Wallmark. Here’s my review:
Dino Pajama Party by Laurie Wallmark, Illustrated by Michael Robertson is a delightful new bedtime picture book for the little ones. Though Laurie is known for her award-winning STEM biography picture books, this first foray into fiction is sure to be a winner.
As dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes rock and roll their way to bedtime, kids will enjoy the action and lively illustrations as they get ready for their own bedtime pajama party. A fun, rhyming, read-aloud that is sure to be a favorite with kid dinosaurs and their parents.”
