Jeff Moss is the children's poet laureate (New York Newsday), a Sesame Street co-creator, and the inspired author of The Butterfly Jar. Now he presents a brand-new collection of prehistoric whimsy and rhyme. Bone Poems is a joyous collection for every kid who loves dinosaurs, plays on words, and the delightful incongruities of science and nature. There's Gotta Find a Footprint, A (Mostly) Dinosaur Alphabet, and I'm Going to Ask a Stegosaur to Dinner. There's a dinosaur math quiz, free verse about a basketball-size dinosaur egg, one of the world's shortest poems with one of the world's longest titles. And, showing the kind of imagination that is completely in touch with kids, a poem about how scientists measure the intelligence of early primates by filling the skull with uncooked rice.
