A lushly illustrated book full of fun read-aloud sounds for the youngest dinosaur fans

Deep in the forest is a nest full of eggs. But what could be inside? With picks, pokes, pops, and wriggles a gaggle of baby dinosaurs hatch. They are quick to scamper and scramble about under mother Triceratops’ watchful eye, but could danger lurk in the forest for the little dinos? With mother’s fierce protection to keep them safe, the little dinosaurs can settle in for a well-needed nap.

Full of onomatopoeic text that will delight young listeners and readers alike, this fun and frolicsome story from lauded visual artist and author Karen Patkau abounds with glorious color.
