We love dinosaurs here on Rainy Day Mum and reading about them is one of our favourite things before we start to craft. It was difficult picking just one dinosaur book for toddlers and preschoolers to feature this week for Rainy Day Tots but we have.

Our featured book is Dinosaurs Love Underpants by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort.

We love the books by this author and illustrator combination. They are funny and have great rhyming words as well as being a little bit silly as well.

In Dinosaurs Love Underpants the mystery of the extinction of the dinosaurs is explained and it had our toddlers and preschoolers in giggles.

  1. Who needs expensive toys? Kids love cardboard boxes, toilet paper rolls, and tissue paper… My son’s feet aren’t quite that big yet, but you’ve just inspired me to upcycle some boxes that I can turn into potential “hats”. My kid loves putting things on his head. Thanks for the post!
