Background Information

Dr. Steven Clark Cunningham was born in Denver, Colorado.  After graduating from Creighton University with majors in chemistry and Spanish, he attended medical school at George Washington University in Washington, DC.  Having finished his residency in general surgery at the University of Maryland and a fellowship in surgery of the liver and pancreas at Johns Hopkins University, he is currently working as Co-Director in Pancreatic and Hepatobiliary Surgery at Saint Agnes Hospital and Cancer Institute in Baltimore, MD.  Dr Cunningham's CV and list of medical writings is found here or here.

Dinosaur Name Poems
These are 30 poems that will encourage in any child love of language carefulness as well as language playfulness. The bilingual (English/Spanish) book received rare distinction as a Paleontological Research Institution (PRI)-approved book for its content and illustration accuracy, and received two 2009 Moonbeam Awards in the Childrenís Poetry and Spanish Language Book categories. Tackling dinosaurs from A (Allosaurus) to V (Velociraptor), each poem plays on the meaning or etymology of the ancient animalís name. The richly hued watercolor collages delight with whimsy of their own, and the bilingual glossary of technical terms and prehistoric creatures rounding out the book is sure to satisfy the inquisitive nature so many children bring to learning about these beloved creatures.
