We're celebrating another day of bookish fun with BOARD book Sunday! For those not up to speed on the post, I read a lot of great storybooks and thought, why not give them their own day in the sun. Hence, Storybook Sunday appears every now and then... but today's a little different. Today, we've got two BOARD books that feature stars from the jurassic period, and will be ROARing into bookstores near you a little later this month. Ready? Set? Here we go!


J.D. Forester
Illustrated by 
Sarah Rebar
Grosset & Dunlap
Release Date: March 12th, 2024

In classic Board Book style, the thick pages are perfect for little ones to really get in on the dino-riffic fun, while the cute shaped edges will draw their curiosity. Once the cover is opened, the fun continues with clever little rhymes that not only move the story onward, but also impart a little knowledge along the way, making these two titles able to dino stomp into readers formative years with ease. The familiar dinosaurs 🦕 chosen allow visual recognition, while piling on the fun as the opportunity to ROAR, CRUNCH, and MUNCH present themselves for that interactive layer of bookish goodness. Top it all off with colorful images to dazzle and delight, and I'd say this is a great start to a promising prehistoric library!
