Bookanistas: DINOSOARING by Deb Lund

Behold this wonderful new book by the fabulous poet-writer-educator Deb Lund.

I first met Deb almost a decade ago at (of course) an SCBWI workshop.  During a break, we got to talking about books and writing and kids and there was a sort of instant karma.  You know, that feeling you get when you know you've found one of your "people"?  I also remember hearing Deb at another writing conference, reading aloud a poem about creativity and the inner critic. Her words were poignant, elegant, sweetly funny--and exactly what I needed to hear at that moment. Deb's insights into storytelling and wordsmithing shine through every one of her fabulous books, each a terrific read and a lesson for aspiring picture book poets. So, I am thrilled to celebrate the arrival on bookshelves of her third delightful DINO book! I got a sneak peek a few weeks ago and can tell you that it this is one you'll want to read aloud to your kids again and again because you'll love it as much as they do!
