    I actually have read How do Dinosaurs say Goodbye to my youngest grandson but never paid much attention to the author; nice to know.

    • I’d never heard of her when I stumbled on the quote. I think we had the dinosaur one and “Owl Moon” in that jumbo classroom size when I was a pre-school teacher (like 10 years ago.) If I saw the covers I’d know for sure.

      I know I’ve said a big part of the fun of Sat Just Saying is discovering authors. I love making the artwork too. (Although, I wasn’t very satisfied with this weeks art, but went with it anyway.)
