Super Book: Dinosaur Farm
By Frann Preston-Gannon
Sterling Children's Books, 2014. Picture Book.
Working on a farm is hard work but it’s even trickier when your livestock are dinosaurs. The story follows a farmer and his pet dinosaur as they go about their busy day feeding, bathing, and cleaning up after the dinosaurs on the farm. Sparse text and humorous colorful collage illustrations make this book one of my all-time favorite dinosaur picture books—and I read a lot of dinosaur picture books.
