Stegothesaurus makes a great storytime read for preschoolers because it emphasizes vocabulary growth through the words of its titular character. Each time the dinosaur's brothers will describe something, they use the most basic word, such as "big". This isn't very exciting to Stegothesaurus though, for he enthusiastically responds with a trio of other options. The repetition soon gets broken with the introduction of another word-loving dinosaur. But all is not as it seems. With the clean art, limited palette of pin and teal, dinosaurs, and delicious choice of words, there is lots to engage kids with.

A picture book for word lovers both young and old. Plus it's about dinosaurs!

Bow ties are cool. Dinosaurs are cool. Expansive vocabularies are cool. One wonders whether the author of this book was influenced by Doctor Who. :) It is a cute and funny book, but it's probably over the heads of very young readers.

Once upon a time, there were three dinosaurs. Two stegosaurus's and their brother, a stegothesaurus who has an extreme love of words. A fun, action packed, colourful book guaranteed to increase your vocabulary! Terrific addition to a dinosaur storytime.

With three very cute dinosaur brothers, 2 stegosaurus' and 1 stegothesaurus, this is a fabulous book to encourages kids to expand their vocabulary. For each one word description from his brothers, the Stegothesaurus uses 3 wonderful describing words but watch out for the Allosaurus!
