Edwina, The Dinosaur Who Didn’t Know She Was Extinct, a book that recommends itself simply by being from the wonderfully creative Mo Willems. Poor, kind Edwina, wondering around, helping the humans whenever she can and beloved by all…except Reginald Von Hoobie Doobie, who is on a mission to prove that Edwina is, in fact, extinct. The silliness and laugh-out-loud parts that are Willems’s specialty are all on display here too.

How to make Dinosaur Feet
Make your own dinosaur footprints with these simple DIY Dinosaur Feet Stamps
Take the 2 empty tissue boxes and wrap them in green construction paper. (I used glue sticks and they worked fine for sticking the paper on the box.) Use the orange construction paper to cut out something that slightly resembled dinosaur claws.

Kay also happens to have a dinosaur jacket, with spikes on the hood, so I left both that and the feet out and let her find them. She had a grand time stomping around, being a scary dinosaur (totally unlike sweet Edwina!). The next day, though they were by then pretty beat up, she used them as monster feet (frightening our dogs in the process!). Two days was all these boxes could withstand of Kay’s rough play, but they were a lot of fun while they lasted and she’s already asking to make another pair!
