THE PREHISTORIC GAMES – for Sports and Dinosaur Lovers!
In this 30-minute session, Janet will share the “story-behind-the-story” of THE PREHISTORIC GAMES, a rollicking, rhyming picture book about dinosaurs competing tooth and claw for medals in Olympic-like events. She will read the book and chat with kids about their favorite sports and dinosaurs.
She will then direct a couple of dino games that can be done at home.
Materials required: a clean sock for each child, large kitchen pot, masking tape, Sharpie pen/marker, crayons.
