Picture Book Review: What The Dinosaurs Did At School by Refe and Susan Tuma

Looking for your next read? Check out What The Dinosaurs Did At School by Refe and Susan Tuma, reviewed by Fulco Library staff, Anne A.

What would happen if toy dinosaurs invaded your school? These plastic dinosaurs get into everything. They create chaos in the gym. They destroy the art room. They trash the cafeteria. They even get into the janitor’s closet. After they cause an explosion in the science lab, they are banished to the Drawer of No Returns. Once they are in the infamous drawer, they start a party with the other teacher-confiscated toys living there.

This book is hilarious. Both my son and I have enjoyed the elaborate pictures of real plastic dinosaurs causing mayhem throughout the school. This book is for any child who loves toy dinosaurs. Unlike some stories, these bold dinosaurs don’t stop what they are doing when they are caught. They merely move to a different room and make a new mess. If you’ve ever wondered what toys do when you are away, then this book is for you.

What the Dinosaurs Did at School is available to be checked out at any Fulton County Library. It is a print book and a read-along VOX book as well. If you enjoyed this story, be sure to read What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night, featuring the same naughty dinosaurs getting into trouble at home. Borrow this wonderful book today, and make sure you know where your toys are before you leave for the day.
