Pirasaurs! deserves a book review written in pirate vernacular, but I am worried it would not do the book justice. The concept of pirate dinosaurs is well developed and the pictures depict pirate plays on actual prehistoric creatures: Bronto Beard, Triceracook, Velocimate and Captain Rex. The creators certainly ‘cannon-blast you to the past!’ My toddler son and I enjoyed the detail and the rhythm of the story and opportunities to roar out loud (ROL?). You could almost read it in a yo-ho-ho voice the whole way through, but it is not required, although the more drama the better. There is a twist at the end from one of the smaller pirate dinosaurs and a good moral about working together. I do find actually saying “pirasaurs” a bit tricky on the tongue for some reason but the book itself is an enjoyable read with just the right amount of rhyming.
Bienvenidos a Mi Mundo! My name is Megan and I’m a problem solving, decision making, left brain leader by day, simmering right brain artist with crafting ideas waiting to spill over at almost all other times, and a lover making and eating good food and devouring good books. At home I am the mother of 6 hens, a backyard apiary and a one-eyed rescue dog, and the newest edition – a beautiful boy, with who I am absolutely smitten. I have a lifelong love of reading and passion for childhood literacy. I have set this tone with my family through daily reading, special topics and engaging them and those around me in philanthropy focused on fostering reading between parents and children.
