Audience: Preschool - 1st Grade
This wordless picture book is great for dinosaur lovers. A bird flies into a museum full of dinosaur skeletons, and as it weaves among them, it flies into a real environment where living dinosaurs are roaming the land. The concept of time in this book is fluid, and present and past blend into one another. While there are no words in the book, the narrative is dynamic, as we follow the bird's trip and watch it escape the jaws of a dinosaur in an unexpected way. This book won a Caldecott Honor, and Rohmann is clearly an artist, as each spread of pages captures a scene with rich colors that give life to the scenery and fluid composition that draws the viewer into the action.
Awards nominated: Caldecott Honor 1995
