How do dinosaurs say good night? ... and more stories that rhyme

Published 2004
Item Details

How do dinosaurs say goodnight?: Even dinosaurs make a fuss before bedtime. Can parents ever get them into bed? In the small, small pond: Frogs leap, tadpoles wriggle, geese waddle and minnows scatter. You'll enjoy watching this pond come to life in the spring. Zin! Zin! Zin! The violin: A lone trombone playing solo is joined by a trumpet to make a duet, until a French horn make it a trio. One by one instruments gather together for a joyous musical performance. All the color of the earth: Celebrate the colors of children and the colors of love in this beautiful lyrical story. Joey runs away: Joey looks for another home when he doesn't feel like cleaning up his room. A weekend with Wendell: Three cheers for compromise as quiet-as-a-mouse Sophie learns to assert herself with bossy, big mouthed Wendell. Moon man: Bored with life on his drifting sphere in space, the man in the moon catches a shooting star and rockets down to earth so he can join the fun.
