Just like all youngsters little dinosaurs need to learn their colors. Luckily for them, just like with us, their lives are full of colors. There are naughty colors like “a purple towel left on the floor.” And there are fun colors like “a red fire truck tucked under the bed.” There are also those tasty colors like “yellow bananas right by a plate.”

Together we get explore the all too familiar world of these little dinosaurs as they learn their colors, get into mischief, play games, celebrate a birthday, and more.

This amusing little board book will give little children and their families plenty of opportunities to practice the names of colors and young dinosaur fans will love seeing their favorite great beasts doing everyday things such as playing with balls on the stairs and looking at rainbows. Simple rhymes and funny illustrations make this the perfect book to dip into at any time of day.
