How does a dinosaur celebrate Jane Yolen’s birthday?

Happy birthday, Jane Yolen!

Happy birthday, Jane Yolen!

How does a dinosaur enjoy the day

When the author who made him at last gets to play?

Does he bury his face in a tablet or phone?

Does he plug in his XBox and sit their alone?

Does a dinosaur groan?

No… a dinosaur visits the library shelf

And checks out a gaggle of books for himself

With scarecrows and dragons and beautiful birds

He gazes on drawings and drinks in the words

He dives in the poetry, swims in the prose

He lets it surround him from tail to nose

He gathers one stack and then borrows one more

Read well, read well little dinosaur
