Dino-Swimming by Lisa Wheeler
Ages: 5-8 years
Illustrations by Barry Gott
Grade Level: K – 3
I met Lisa at an SCBWI conference when she critiqued my dog book, and now I’m posting a review for her. I love her books, and so did the Elida kids I visited last year. They knew and loved her work. They’re just a great combination of sport and rhyme. In this one, #6, the land sharks compete against the algae eaters. The land sharks win, but so does good sportsmanship. When I read this book, Dino-Racing was coming soon. It’s out, and now you can look forward to Dino-Dancing. Cha-cha anyone?
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
