Twenty-one little "dinosaurs" roared behind their personally colored paper masks as they stomped their feet to music during the dinosaur-themed Super Saturday program for kindergartners and first-graders at the Algonquin Public Library on Saturday afternoon.

The 90-minute program is offered once a month at the library and features a new topic every time. February's topic will be the Olympics.

In addition to coloring their masks, children listened to several dinosaur stories, learned the names of different species and the eras when they roamed the earth, made fossil footprints in Play-Doh from plastic dinosaur toys and even played a game of "hot potato" using a stuffed T-Rex puppet in place of a potato.

"Hot dinosaur?!" exclaimed Gavin Harrison, 6, of Algonquin. "He must be standing in lava!"

Gavin is a regular at library events. His mother, Jennifer, said her family loves the library and that it offers "lots of awesome programs."

The Super Saturday programs are free to Algonquin Public Library cardholders. Registration is required and can be done via the website at aapld.org or by calling (847) 458-6060.
