Feen Rosenthal (aged 3 when this was written)
Art by Hannah Jacobs
Three-year-old Fenn Rosenthal’s viral song about love, longing, and loss has melted the hearts of tens of millions of people on Tiktok, Instagram, Spotify and even on the Jimmy Fallon Show. Now readers of all ages can enjoy Fenn’s heartfelt, poignant lyrics again and again in this irresistible, sing-aloud picture book that includes exclusive extras!
Dinosaurs eat people, dinosaurs have a party, dinosaurs eat fruit and cucumber, but dinosaurs didn’t say goodbye! This sweet and deceptively simple story features all-new illustrations from Hannah Jacobs (the animator of the viral music video) that expand on Fenn’s lyrics and illuminate tender moments from these beloved dinosaurs’ journey. Also features an interview with Fenn as well as a bonus letter from her father and singer-songwriter, Tom Rosenthal.
Dinosaurs in Love is the perfect gift to share with anyone you’ve ever fallen in love with, whether it be your friends, your family, or even a treat for yourself.
The perfect, cutest Valentine’s Day read you will ever find.
After you have read the book, watch the Youtube video for another hit of cuteness. The world needs more smiles and this provides lots of them.
In the Bush Book and Jigsaw Puzzle
Allen & Unwin
A fabulously entertaining book and jigsaw gift set from one of Australia’s favourite illustrators.
Wombat Flat’s the best!
We camped out near the Cascades, stayed up all night to see the sunrise, nearly got snowed in at Mt Misery … and rode across the Razorback.
And a squillion other things that you’ll find out when you come with us to Wombat Flat.
A delightful book and puzzle gift set of an Australian classic for the whole family to enjoy. The 400mm x 490mm jigsaw comprises 150 pieces.
This book and puzzle combination were something I was very excited to receive; previous to this I have only discovered one other similar combination, this is such a rare and wonderful find. Puzzles for this age group (150 pieces) are rare, it seems there are plenty of toddler age-appropriate puzzles everywhere you look; floor puzzles, wooden peg puzzles, children’s’ tv character related puzzles, puzzles of a maximum of about 20 pieces but puzzles that are suitable for the next age group – pre-schoolers are a hidden gem and I am glad I have discovered one more to add to the collection.
The puzzle component of this combination gift pack (excellent for Christmas – you still have time to order) has 150 pieces – perfect for those inquisitive minds; perhaps read the hilariously funny hardback book first then work on the puzzle together, discussing sections as you complete. This is a great resource – such a fun way to develop those comprehension, language and fine motor skills.
