PreS—Dinosaur parents are about to have a second child as mom is sporting a "belly bump," so they are preparing big sister for her new role. Once the baby arrives, there are a few missteps as the older dino loves to make noise and play rough. But she soon gets the hang of sharing and manners. She also teaches the little one to roar, clomp, stomp, and pound. The black-line drawings, digitally colored, feature cartoon dinosaurs sporting bows, gloves, and shoes. They have big heads, small tails, and small arms and legs. They are all very green. This is a typical new baby story told by dinosaurs. The only thing different is all the roaring and stomping.—Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library, MI
