It's Only Ink! Thesaurus Rex
It's Only Ink!
"Thesaurus Rex" by Laya Steinberg is a fun, educational book for young children. It's perfect for early readers and gives them a creative way to learn the synonyms of "action" words such as exploring (foraging, poking), slip (glide, slide), calls (squeal, howl), and leaps (bounces, jumps). Teachers could easily include this adorable book into their lesson plans. Schools, libraries, and households everywhere should have this book on their shelves.
"Thesaurus Rex" is a little dinosaur who loves adventure, but at the end of the day, his "adventure" gets him a little dirty and tired. So mama dinosaur helps him clean up and get in bed so he can begin new "adventures" the next day.
Debbie Harter's colorful illustrations, resembling fabric applique texture, gives 'lil Rex personality and uniqueness.
I recommend this book to all dinosaur-lovers, adventurers, and those who are looking for some word-fun.
