Dinosnores is the perfect book for toddler bedtime routines, helping young kids wind down with a rhyming ritual of getting ready for bed.
‘’When the sun has gone down and the blue stars appear … Then the dinosaurs know that their bedtime is near.’’
The dinosaurs go through a standard bed-time routine. They all clean their teeth and faces, wiggle and stretch, put on their cozy pajamas and then … YAAAAWWWNNNN.
After this routine, they all settle down into a big dinosaur heap and fall asleep.
Except … Once they start dreaming, the snoring begins!
‘’Honk SHOOOOOOOO! Honk SHOOOOOOOO!” (Kids just love this part!)
They snoring goes on and on and they don’t stop till the first morning light.
A cute bunny appears on the last page, dressed in bright red pajamas….
‘’Thank goodness those dinosnores live far, far away,’’ he says.
