ROSA LOVES DINOSAURS/ A ROSA LE ENCANTAN LOS DINOSAURIOS is a fun bilingual board book about a love of dinosaurs. With some simple facts, such as dinosaurs had big footprints and that some are plant or meat eaters, this is primarily a fun book about Rosa and her friends who enjoy playing with their dinosaur toys.

What I loved: Rosa is a fantastic character, and I love the way her series features STEM information in an approachable way for young children. With repeating characters across the books, the familiarity adds to the fun for toddlers/preschoolers who are recognizing and appreciating the consistency. The diversity of children is also really great.

This book is written in both English and Spanish, adding to the learning possibilities and making it great for bilingual families. The text is simple throughout, and the font is nice and clear, which is helpful for reading aloud. The simple facts about dinosaurs are included throughout, though this is more a book about play vs dinosaur information.

What left me wanting more: The book does not have a consistent story and each page could almost stand-alone. For instance, on one page spread, Rosa is at a museum and on the facing page, she is at the library, without any connection between those places. Since it is not quite a dinosaur fact book, a more connected plot would help young readers to follow along. That being said, context clues can help slightly older readers to make up their own story about how Rosa is spending her day. Also a small note of caution for sensitive readers, as Rosa tells a little dinosaur to run, because T. Rex is a meat eater (though this may go over some children's heads and/or not bother them).

Final verdict: A cute board book about a love of dinosaurs, ROSA LOVES DINOSAURS is a fun bilingual story with simple dinosaur facts and many friends. Recommend this and other Rosa books for children who enjoy following characters across books!
