Have a budding paleontologist, poet or linguist on your hands? Then the bilingual Dinosaur Name Poems is the book for you! Author Steven C. Cunningham has written a clever book of poems describing dinosaur names and/or attributes. In some cases, the witty verses capture the literal meaning of the dinosaur’s name; in others, they paint a picture of how the dinosaur lived and died.

Dinosaur Name Poems won the 2009 Moonbeam Award in two categories, Children’s Poetry and Spanish Language Books. The poems have been expertly translated into Spanish by Myriam Gorospe. Further adding to the tome’s credentials, its scientific accuracy is guaranteed by the Paleontological Research Institution in Itaca, NY. The vivid and accurate illustrations are by Valeska M. Populoh.
