Board Book Review: Twinkle, Twinkle Dinosaur

If I was reading it to her for bedtime, it would be the first one I’d reach for!

Cover Copy

This little dinosaur is ready for sweet-dream adventures as he tumbled through the forest. Little ones will love this Dino-size twist on the classic nursery rhyme “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star!”

Twinkle Twinkle Dinosaur


So we actually have this book’s predecessor, which is Twinkle Twinkle Unicorn. And that version is sung more often than the original in our house because we love it so much. So I was absolutely delighted to get this one and have the ability to add some variation to the songs we sing! I think I’m a bit partial to the unicorn one, but this is still a really cute version. This one focuses more on the night time aspect, which I have discovered is not my favorite only because I don’t really read to the girls before bed right now, so it always seems out of place for us. The sleepiness of the dinosaur is a part of the rhyme whereas the unicorn just had a full day and then was sleepy on the last page. This is, of course, just personal preference. If I was reading it to her for bedtime, it would be the first one I’d reach for!
