Pass out the sparkly beads, put on the catchy Mardi Gras tunes, and let the kids CHOMP! CHOMP! and STOMP! STOMP! to the infectious beat of Dinosaur Mardi Gras. A perfect read-aloud!"-John Schumacher, librarian, founder of MrSchuReads.com, a 2011 Library Journal Mover & ShakerWhen carnival time rolls around, these big beasts begin to party. Notoceratops swings and swoons, while Spinosaurus taps his blue suede shoes and Brachiosaurus tosses colorful beads to the crowd below. From Lee Circle to Canal Street, follow these crazy creatures as they boogie down the parade route. Clever rhymes and repetition allow children to sing along to that mambo beat. A glossary, along with instructions for creating a shoebox Mardi Gras float, complete this vibrantly-illustrated book of festive fun.

    I was throughly not impressed with this book and found socbenefical use to read to children to try to get them to understand Mardi Gras. Growing up with Mardi Gras, I was very excited to read this book only to be let down.

    Went to the library for the first time* with my godchildren. It was the grand reopening, so there were all worlds of amazingly fun events and cake. I don't know how we'll break it to the 3 year old that it's not always like thatMy 6 year old godson picked this book out, and I read it to him before I left. The illustrations are awesome, especially for children from Louisiana. Kids not from here may not appreciate the references to Magazine and Canal.

    I am totally going to have to practice dinosaur pronunciation! I hope my littles can sit through such a long book I might skip a few pages. But this is great!

    My story time kids loved this book and so do I. There are not many Mardi Gras books and there are even fewer really good read alouds, but this one is great. My kids had fun repeating 'the chorus' "Dinosaur Mardi Gras Chomp, Chomp. Dinosaur Mardi Gras Stomp, Stop. Down in New Orleans." and they were doing the chomping and the stomping. We had a lot of fun with this one. Great story time read!
