If You Happen to Have a DinosaurIf You Happen to Have a Dinosaur
Written by Linda Bailey
Illustrated by Colin Jack
Hardcover | 40 Pages | Ages 3-7
ISBN: 978-1-77049-568-5
“This playful picture book encourages children to contemplate the ‘oddles of things you can do with a dinosaur’ through a subtly ironic narrative that speaks directly to them. Two-page spreads capture the many hilarious scenarios…. Buried in all the rambunctious fun, the story leaves young ones with a message that can be applied to real-life situations: if you take the time to think critically and creatively, you can make effective and logical choices.” — Booklist

The Washington Children’s Choice Picture Book Award (WCCPBA) is sponsored by the Washington Library Media Association (WLMA) in association with Washington Library Association (WLA). This coming school year 2015-2016, Washington state students in grades kindergarten through third grade will be voting on the 2016 award for their favorite picture book out of the nominated 20 books listed.
