Dinosaur Storytime


Storytime and other Library programs.

Let the wild rumpus start!

Dinosaur Storytime

Scott Bahlmann

Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi


Book: Dinosaur vs The Library – Bob Shea

dinosaur vs the library

(A good intro for proper library behavior, and we got to start the storytime with roaring!)

Activity: Dini Dinosaur -
based on the book by Karen Beaumont
(see full version here)


(Pretty cute, and simple. Kept the kids engaged.)

Dini has been playing in the mud, so him mom tells him he needs a bath before bed. He scrubs different parts, but forgets to take of his clothes! Back in the tub!


Book: Down at the Dino Wash Deluxe – Tim Myers


(I thought it might be a little too wordy, but it worked out fine. Nice bright pictures.)

Activity: We Are The Dinosaurs
from the CD Waddda Think of That by Laurie Berkner


(I introduce some different dino's we can be ...flap for pterodactyl, hold up fingers on head for triceratops, chop hand together for t-rex, etc...and we act out the song. It's fantastic!)

Book: The Really Really Really big Dinosaur – Richard Byrne


(A cute story with a bit of a surprise ending, and a good lesson in manners.)

Puppet Song: Dinosaur Round – from the CD Rhinoceros Tap by Sandra Boynton


(The puppets act out this song. Dino is a bit of a messy eater, but the kids are eager to re-feed him the food that drops. At the very end he gobbles up the boy! Loads of fun.)

Book: How Do Dinosaurs Eat their food – Jane Yolen


(Then we learn how you ought to behave at meal time. This series is awesome.)

Activity: bubbles


(You think these are bubbles? No, they're mini asteroids! Destroy them before they crash into the earth!)
