Dino-Football by Lisa Wheeler

In this Super Bowl like game including an explosive musical half time show, the Greenblade Snackers are playing the Redscales for the championship. All the football lingo is here in this delightful colorful and rhyming book. Touchdown. Penalty. Flea-flicker. The illustrator Barry Gott works well with author Lisa Wheeler to make this a charming story begging to be read aloud. It's easy to keep track of which player is doing what for which team as the red dinos names are in red and the green ones in green. The game is exciting and tense up until the end. Love the hint of the next title at the end of the book.

Dinosaurs and football.  Is there a better combination for a dad or grandpa to share with their little ones? Unless of course it's basketball you prefer.  For my review of Dino-Basketball click here written by the same team as Dino-Football.

Read as an ebook arc courtesy of Carolrhoda Books via Netgalley.  Dino-Football will be available beginning August 1 2012.
