"Shake, shake, shudder, near the sludgy old swamp. The dinosaurs are coming. Get ready to romp. Join in with Triceratops, Stegosaurus, and friends as the dinosaurs stir up a Dinosaurumpus! Where can you find a Deinosuchus that practically pirouettes on its tail and a T-Rex that bounds gracefully through the air? Between the pages of Tony Mitton's Dinosaurumpus, where dinosaurs run, boom, shake, and shudder their way to the "sludgy old swamp" and rock the night away. Mitton's delightful rhyme and Parker-Rees's whimsical illustrations will make children want to join in the dance while they learn about some of their favorite prehistoric pals. By the time the romp is over, and the dinosaurs are fast asleep, kids won't be able to shake that jumping, thumping Dinosaurumpus beat!"--Online description.

Really fun, it had all three of my kids (ages 2-7) up and dancing. It was especially perfect for my toddler who believes he is a dinosaur and even greets people by roaring at them. I'll be getting him a copy for his birthday, we loved it so much!

This is a fun story to read to preschoolers during a story time. The rhyme and the rhythm keep children engaged and words such as "donk" "bomp" "thwack" add to the fun. The author includes the names of lots of dinosaurs which appeal to the children. There's a bit of suspense when Tyrannosaurus crashes in, but the end result is delightful!

My nieces introduced me to this book. They loved it at the age of 5. I have used it in story times and kids love to get up and act out the story.
