A delightfully imaginative tale of a family pretending to be dinosaurs—with downloadable songs Have you ever loved dinosaurs so much you wish you could be one? From gentle—but huge—plant eaters to fierce meat eaters, join a family traveling through their day pretending to be 12 different dinosaurs. Inspired by dinosaurs and the kids who love them, composer and musician Marty Haugen conceived this project with his own grandchildren in mind. Enlisting the help of his son Matt and award-winning illustrator Stephanie Mirocha, this book is filled with vivid illustrations that bring the dinosaurs to life. All the dinosaur facts presented are accurate according to today's scientific research, and a time line at the end of the book provides even more fun dinosaur trivia. Readers can download songs recorded for Marty's I Wanna Be a Dinosaur album that relate to each of the dinosaurs in the book.
