‘STOMP, DINOSAUR STOMP!’ introduces a different dinosaur on every page. This is a striking picture book with big, bold, colourful illustrations. The book has a strong rhythm making it a great book for joining in – NOISILY!
Share the story
Read the book aloud emphasising the words in bold. Allow time to look closely at the pictures, trace the shape of the diplodocus from its head to the tip of its tail.
When you re read the book point to the words as they curve or slant across the page and get bigger and bolder.
As children become familiar with the book they can join in with the refrain on each page eg ‘So stomp Tyrannosaurus, stomp!’ They can make up actions for chomping, stomping, gliding and swishing would be fun too.
