Get Up and Go, Little Dinosaur: @

Norman Gorbaty. Random House Books for Young Readers, $3.99 (1pp) ISBN 978-0-679-80693-6

In this Chunky Shape board book (with a die-cut edge), a bright-green baby dinosaur and his purple prehistoric pal cavort through a day full of toddlers' antics. Dinosaur ``digs'' in a sandbox, ``tumbles'' about, ``bounces'' a ball and ``wiggles'' with a hula hoop. When he joins his playmate, the two ``sing'' and ``dance,'' then ``splash'' and ``kick'' in a wading pool. At a playground, they ``climb'' monkey bars, ``slide'' and ``swing,'' ``spin'' on a merry-go-round and ``play hide-and-seek.'' Their frolicking over, they fall into each other's arms in a good-bye ``hug.'' These whimsical creatures and their cheery high jinks will captivate toddlers while painlessly teaching intriguing words. Ages 6 mos.-3 yrs. (Oct.)
