Kid Lit Love: Noah Noasaurus

Unknown-1

Elaine Kiely Kearns does so much for the kid lit community. She and Sylvia Liu are responsible for the kid lit 411 website which provides a wealth of information for aspiring writers. If you haven’t checked it out, I encourage you to do so.

I was excited to receive a copy of Elaine’s debut picture book, titled NOAH NOASAURUS. This book has the winning combination of a popular dinosaur theme paired with a recognizable stage of childhood development. Many parents can relate to the “No” phase where a child’s favourite word becomes “no.” And for that reason alone, parents and children will love the book.

From the Wooly Mammoth Slippers to the Smilodon Toothpaste, Elaine has fully explored the dinosaur theme in a playful manner.

The bright and colourful illustrations by Colin Jack along with the increasing parade of dinosaur friends who follow Noah on his grumpy journey are delightful.

In true toddler fashion, Noah’s grumpiness turns to laughter and he and his friends discover that a sense of humour can bring us out of our dinosaur doldrums. This is a super appealing book for preschool aged children.
