Find the Library Dinosaur

Dinosaur, Dinosaur
Do I hear your tiny roar?
Are you hiding under the (blue) book?

There Was An Owl Who Loved to Read
(tune of BINGO)
There was an Owl who loved to read,
 And books were what he checked out
B-O-O-K-S, B-O-O-K-S, B-O-O-K-S,
 And books were what he checked out
 (put one book in the owl’s nest because he has “checked it out” and taken it home) 

 There was an Owl who loved to read, 
And books were what he checked out
(flap)-O-O-K-S, (flap)-O-O-K-S, (flap-)-O-O-K-S,
 And books were what he checked out
(continue removing the books, one by one and replacing each with a loud “Flap” until none are left) 

Now, Owl has checked out all the books, and none are left. I wonder what he’s reading about… (Discuss the cover of each book. Ask what children like to read about with their parents)
