I'm a Hungry Dinosaur by Janeen Brian and Ann James

I read this book to my little grandson today while we waited at the dentist's office. He loved it. It was a fun read, and the pages are rounded, thick, cleanable, and sturdily sewn in the book. This book can take abuse and still be okay. The pictures are cute and the words are fun and silly. The artwork was done with real flour, cocoa, and sprinkles. 

"I'm a hungry dinosaur with a hungry tum. I'll shake and stir and mix and beat and make a cake that's yum."
This book is by the same duo that brought us the next book. 

I need to get both of these for a baby shower I have coming up. I love books that can take some loving from young children. You can order them by clicking on the Usborne book sale and you will help us earn books for the NICU. 

If you'd like to contribute to our book drive for NICU babies, here is how you can help.

1. You can order books for your own children from an online Usborne book party and the proceeds will go to purchase books for the NICU. I've received over $350.00 in free books for the NICU from people buying books for their own families through my web link. Usborne is really good to their hostesses, and they have great board books for babies. Click on the link: Usborne book sale to benefit NICU The books you order will be shipped directly to your home. You can then give them to your children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews. The free books from the hostess benefits go to the NICU.

2. We have set up a baby registry at with many books listed for the NICU babies. Some of these books only cost 2.50. Many of these are classics that all children should have. Click on this link if you'd like to help provide books for the NICU: Catherine Crosby Building Lifelong Readers Book Registry. If you order books for us, they will be shipped directly to me, and I will package and send them to the NICU. English and Spanish books are both needed as some of our babies' first language is Spanish. It is important for these little ones to be proficient in their first language.


  1. We have I'm a dirty dinosaur and live it. I didn't know they had a hungry version!
