Internationally acclaimed author Jane Yolen composes a playful bedtime book about young dinosaurs. Format: Paperback book and CDIn a few easy lines of verse on each spread, fathers and mothers are ready to put their youngsters to bed. And how do dinosaurs say very good night? But in this book, the youngsters are a wide selection of dinosaurs. Filled with wonderful detail and humor, children and their parents will love the expressions and antics with the eleven various dinosaur youngsters depicted here, and every species is spelled out somewhere in the young dinosaur's bedroom. In the end, young dinosaurs behave a lot like people do: They give a big kiss, turn out the light, tuck in their tails, and whisper"good night."
"How does a dinosaur say good night when Papa comes in to turn off the light? DOES A DINOSAUR ROAR? '? Dinosaurs give their mommies and daddies big hugs and kisses, tuck their tales in, and whisper"Good night! Does a dinosaur stomp his feet on the floor and shout: 'I wish to hear one book more! Does he throw his teddy bear all about?"Most certainly not. Does a dinosaur slam his tail and pout?"
Every sleepy small dinosaur will recognize the tricks in the trade in these bedtime shenanigans. This good-natured nighttime book is sure to be a winner (despite the fact that it might inspire a few noisy dinosaur antics) , especially as it's written by Jane Yolen, prolific Caldecott Medalist author of Owl Moon. Yolen and Mark Teague have teamed up to make a fun, silly, playful read-aloud. A selection of human mothers and fathers trying to put their dinosaur children to bed will bring the point home that the story may possibly have something to complete with human kid behavior as well. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter The chuckle factor is sky-high here, with giant, full-page pictures of cleverly identified Tyrannosaurus rexes, triceratopses, and Pteranodons.
