Dinosaurs Roar, Butterflies Soar! based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Last time I checked, kids like dinosaurs. Landing on Kirkus' best of the year list, Barner's latest dino book adds femininity to the subject with the parallel history of the dainty butterfly --- who actually survived extinction, fluttering along for 65 million years. (Add this cut paper collage-style nonfiction title to the picture books collection to increase circ.)
