Enjoy a Jurassic lark at your local library

If you have a dinosaur-mad toddler a visit to your local library is a must over the next fortnight as they host a real Jurassic lark.

Wokingham Borough Libraries will be holding special story times to mark the 20th anniversary of Dinosaur Roar, a popular children’s book by Paul and Henrietta Stickland.

Featuring pages and pages of rhymes about dinosaurs, teaching ytounsgetrs about opposites such as weak, strong, short and long.

It’s gone from being just a book to a worldwide phenomenon, translated into many languages and boasting a club, Facebook page and an iPad app.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary, Wokingham Borough libraries will be reading Dinosaur Roar and helping under fives to create a ‘roarsome’ dinosaur to take home.

Each session costs £1.50 and there’s no need to book – just turn up and drop in.
