Dino-Swimming by Lisa Wheeler, Illustrations by Barry Gott
The Land Sharks take on the Algae Eaters in a dino-swimming showdown! Raptor and Stegosaurus start it off in the individual medley, while the Ptero twins battle it out in the butterfly race. Then Galli and Diplo wow the crowd with their flips and tricks off the diving board! But which team will win the swim meet? It comes down to the last event: the backstroke. Both Stego and Galli think they’ll take the prize. Let’s hope these dinos remembered their goggles—this swim meet is bound to make a splash!
There’s a new girl in Romelie’s class named Camila. Camila speaks Spanish, and she’s teaching it to Romelie. That gets Romelie thinking. What other languages do people speak? Her own family uses English and American Sign Language. Her mom’s friend knows Somali and Arabic. Can Romelie discover more languages in her city? How are they like her own? How are they different? A diverse cast gives multiple points of comparison.
