Looking for the perfect gift for the young dinosaur fan?
"In this kit, young artists will find all kinds of tools that they can use to draw pictures of dinosaurs. There are twenty-eight pages to color. There are also four pages of stickers which artists can use to embellish their coloring pages, and thirteen pages of “dinosaur skin” paper that can be cut out and used to make the dinosaurs especially lifelike. In addition, for those artists who want to create dinosaur drawings on their own paper, there are three stencils that can be used to create pictures of diplodocus, tyrannosaurus, and triceratops.
At the back of the book, dinosaur fans will find pages full of information about five dinosaur and one pteranodon species. Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Reviews
Best wishes to all our friends and our EDC/Usborne Books family for a happy Thanksgiving holiday.
We hope you, like us, will be celebrating with your loved ones, in spirit at least if not in actuality.
We wish that every child, like Carlota, could know they have The Best Family in the World.

Thank you, Georgia Heard, for letting us snap your photo in our NCTE booth for the KM blog! And for your moving poem inspired by Anne Frank. Georgia told us how pleased she was to have her work included in Dare to Dream ... Change the World. This beautiful poetry collection drew LOTS of attention and praise from convention attendees! They loved the concept, the design, the stunning illustrations and of course, the poems.

An interior spread from Duck to the Rescue showing a wobbly Sheep and the ever-helpful Duck accompanies the entry calling the books, "engaging rhyming stories."
