I’m a Dirty Dinosaur

A fun picture book in simple, rhyming text about a little dinosaur who just loves mud!

Winner – 2014 Speech Pathology of Australia Awards

Honour Book – Early Childhood category in the 2014 CBCA Awards

Notable Book for Picture Book 2016

‘This is a pre-schooler gem.’

‘As a read aloud in a classroom, or at home, or an older child, by themselves, this is a standout book.’

‘From cover to cover, this book is simply brilliant. Janeen Brian obviously knows what makes children tick: a cheeky character, catchy words and a whole lot of muddy mess. The simple, rhythmical text is engaging and fun to read aloud, and lends itself nicely to being sung.’
