How many Dinosaurs Deep? by Ben Kitchin

Thu 23 May 2019

This week we shine a light on a Kinderling library favourite. Jim is learning how to swim, but he's afraid of going from the baby pool to the middle-sized pool, that is until his Mum comes up with a way to put everything in perspective. 

South Australian author, primary school teacher and Dad of 5, Ben Kitchin, has written a really sweet, creative story about helping kids overcome fear. British illustrator and graphic designer, Vicki Fieldhouse, brings the story to life with colourful and adorable dinosaurs in hilarious situations.
