You can't beat a birthday party and dinsoaurs in one book! To top it off Matt Forrest Esenwine and his team have developed some fun activities that will not only entertain your students, they'll delight your party guests as well. They thoughtfully included activities in black and white as well as color, so that each indicidual could choose the file(s) that matched his or her resources.
Activity Name: Dinosaur Match Up
Activity Description: This is one of the best matching worksheets I've ever seen because not only does it include facts about the dinos, the facts are written in the same humorous tone of the book. Have fun!

If you like the humorous tone of this book, besides checking out the creators' websites, you should also look at this trailer. Ame Dyckman's You Don't Want a Unicorn! pairs well with Don't Ask a Dinosaur.
