- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 April #1
The lyrics to Berkner's 1997 dinosaur marching song are kitted out with a plotline, dialogue, additional sound effects, and big, very simply drawn prehistoric scenes. Bidding their parents goodbye, diminutive dinos Ernesto and Dax gather a multispecies gang of fellow hatchlings and go "marching, marching" to "make the earth flat." Following lunch and a climb, all settle down in a cave for a napâuntil a rumbling quake sends them scooting back down the mountain to their parents ("It was rad, Dad!" "You should have been there, Mom!") for a final rousing "ROOAARRR!" The main lyrics of the songs are offset by occasional cartoon-style lines of dialogue from the dino crew. As is typical of songs converted to this format, there is no strong rhythm or cadence to the lines, but the original is likely to be familiar enough (and is widely available on recordings and online) that young audiences will have no trouble chiming in as they march about and roar in chorus.
