Rated 5 out of 5 by from great book My daughter loves this book. We've read it each night before bed for at least 6 months (yes, I am a bit sick of it but she isn't) - she now names each type of dinosaur on each page.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a hoot! I first spotted this book in our local library, where two children (about 5 years old) were laughing at the wonderful illustrations. Their mother sat and read to them, and they were absolutely taken with the catchy rhythm, the very funny and witty illustrations, and the fact that they could both identify with bedtime woes! The dinosaur demanding a piggy back ride has the most incredible look on his face - hilarious! I bought 3 of these books - for all my nieces and nephews.

From Our Editors

 

Kids are kids no matter what their species, as Jane Yolen proves in this bedtime story to end all bedtime stories. Children will giggle in recognition at the dinosaurs that thump their tails in displeasure at having to go to sleep and smile at the ones that like to end the night with a hug and kiss. Ideal for children who love dinosaurs but are ambivalent about sleepy time, How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? has plenty to its credit: mainly, the singular artwork of Mark Teague. This crafty illustrator infuses the pictures with his customary good humour and obvious affection for children in scenes that work hilariously: huge dinos such as T. Rex and Pteranodon look sublimely funny in ordinary human bedrooms. And children will like seeing themselves in the babyish behaviour, too, such as when the snake-headed Apatosaurus swings its head about in a tantrum and when the Stegosaurus obediently turns off the light with his tail. With 10 dinosaurs in all, listed in the end-papers and with clues to the identity of each in the illustrations — see the building blocks that spell out “Pteranodon” — children will enjoy the story that comes before bedtime so much, they may forget what comes after it!
