The Prehistoric Games

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Martin Davey. Every thousand years, dinosaurs gather for their version of the Olympics. From allosaurs to troodons, the athletes compete in species-appropriate contests of weight-lifting, gymnastics, volleyball, and more, finally facing off in a carnivores-versus-herbivores dodgeball game. Singsongy rhyming stanzas celebrate skill, effort, and good sportsmanship, while the illustrations (whose textures recall classic dino encyclopedias) humorously blend prehistoric and modern images.
