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...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clever Illustrations and Wonderful Writing My kids and I LOVE Yolen's "How Do Dinosaurs..." book series. The illustrations are hilarious and the messages have an immediately positive impact you can use in "teachable moments". I love to reference to these books when I need to remind my kids how to act or handle themselves - then we laugh together and recite examples from "How Do Dinosaurs...."

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming and witty A delightful read, I especially enjoyed the vibrant illustrations and active prose. The rhyming text really helped carry the story along and is a lovely addition to bedtime stories.
