Inhaltsangabe: 30 poems that will encourage in any child love of language carefulness as well as language playfulness. The bilingual (English/Spanish) book received rare distinction as a Paleontological Research Institution (PRI)-approved book for its content and illustration accuracy, and received two 2009 Moonbeam Awards in the Children s Poetry and Spanish Language Book categories. Tackling dinosaurs from A (Allosaurus) to V (Velociraptor), each poem plays on the meaning or etymology of the ancient animal's name. The richly hued watercolor collages delight with whimsy of their own, and the bilingual glossary of technical terms and prehistoric creatures rounding out the book is sure to satisfy the inquisitive nature so many children bring to learning about these beloved creatures.
This book is intended for a wide age range: children as young as 3 to 4 years old seem to love the pictures and the rhyme and rhythm, while 11- to 12-year-olds can appreciate the more subtle plays on words; adults who want to enjoy some fun reading or brush up on their Spanish will also profitably read this book.

Dr. Myriam Gorospe was born in San Sebastian (Donostia), Spain. She received her Ph.D. from the State University of New York at Albany. She completed her postdoctoral training at the National Institutes of Health, where she studies genes (some of the same genes that dinosaurs might have had!). She has broad experience translating between English and Spanish, ranging from scientific and technical documents to poetry and literature.
Valeska Maria Populoh grew up in a small town in Germany, immersed in storytelling and rituals. Tales of saints wafting through plumes of smoke in the cathedral blended together with mesmerizing puppet shows beamed in from Poland and the folktalesher mother read to her from thick, brown tomes. The calendar was filled with community celebrations lantern processions on St. Martin s Day, annual eruptions of color and costume for Carnival. Her childhood was imbued with richness and color. When she moved to America as a young girl, she tumbled headlong into that perplexing terrain of not speaking a language and so improvising pantomime to communicate. Her best tools were picture books and a sticker album her teacher made for her, in which she recorded the words she learned. Art, music and gym class were her solace. From this grew a strong and abiding fascination with language, the power of the body and images to communicate without words, and a sensitivity to feelings of otherness, and the value of community. After years of nomadism, both geographic and professional, she now resides in Baltimore, Maryland, engaged in the community as a puppeteer, performer, artist, and teacher. Making art and illustrating dinosaurs is one part of this life, dedicated to celebrating creativity, making joyful, enriching and colorful experiences available and accessible to others, and supporting youth in their endeavor to find their own creative voice.
