Celebrate International Dinosaur Month

October is International Dinosaur Month and that means it’s dino time at the library! The library is full of great books, movies, and documentaries about our favorite larger-than-life reptiles. You can come into any of our nine library branches to check one out, or visit online 24/7 with our Libby and Hoopla apps.

Here are a couple of my favorite books about dinosaurs in order to get you and your family in the mood to celebrate. All three books are available through the Terrebonne Parish Library System and you can reserve a copy today at www.mytpl.org.

We Are the Dinosaurs

Written by Laurie Berkner



Illustrated by Ben Clanton

Based on musician Laurie Berkner’s hit song, We Are the Dinosaurs, this book follows a group of colorful dinosaurs as they march around making the earth flat. And, while they do take some breaks from their hard work to eat, snack and take naps, don’t forget that they can still very much ROAR!
