Snore, Dinosaur, Snore by John Bendall-Brunello
Three little dinosaurs put forth much effort to wake their sleeping, snoring mother. That's the whole story. Simple, yes, and told with very little text, the story is shown mostly through the colorful, lively, full 2-page spread illustrations. The format is similar to Denise Fleming books; "pinch, push, poke", "tickle, claw, elbow", actions words describing how the three offspring are attempting to rouse their mom. The original title for the Great Britain publication was Dinosnore! which I like better. But either way, it's a fun picture book that small children will enjoy looking at over and over.
