Synopsis: Ever seen an allosaurus in pointe shoes and a tutu? A raptor swing-dancing, or pterodactyls tap-dancing? You’ll see it all in this enlightening and dizzyingly hilarious imagining of a prehistoric “So You Think You Can Dance” competition.

My Review: This is the newest edition in the Dino-Sports series. Dino-Dancing is a cute rhyming book that tells the tale of a prehistoric dance competition reminding the reader of “Dancing with the Stars”. See all kinds of dancing from ballet, swing, hiphop and more. Great costumes and the opportunity to explore various kinds of music can make this a useful book for a primary music class or physical education class where students can explore different types of music as well as various types of dance. The story is told in rhyme which makes it easy to read and fun to listen to. The illustrations are amazing. Lots of colour and expression. The dinosaurs are cartoon like, so they are not scary for the little ones. A cute series for young readers, especially those that love dinosaurs. Thanks to Netgalley and Carolrhoda Books for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.
