Dinosaurs Love Underpants by Claire Freeman and Ben Cort

Claire Freedman's Dinosaurs Love Underpants explains what really drove the dinosaurs to extinction in this fun read-aloud celebration of underpants!

My thoughts:
This was one of our new book order books this month.  My children have a lot of books, but it is so fun to get new ones every once in a while.  We try to use the library pretty regularly but one of our fun treats is ordering books from their classroom book orders.  I read this one to them last night and then today I saw both of my older children pick this book out to read to themselves.  From the title it is pretty clear that this is a humorous book.  The idea is that cavemen decided they needed underpants and when the dinosaurs saw underpants they decided they had to have them as well.  Fights over underpants caused the dinosaurs to fight until they were all extinct, thereby saving human kind from the mighty dinosaur predators.  After reading the teacher in me had to also initiate a discussion about how dinosaurs and humans were not alive at the same time.  Anthing having to do with underwear seems silly to my children so they had a lot of fun with this book!

  1. I think my son would like this one but now that he's 8 I'm not sure he would admit to it as much. It would be a book I would have to lay down somewhere and let him find it. Thanks for the review.
