With more than 10 million copies in print, America's favourite dinosaurs now celebrate Chanukah!

Little dinosaurs love to celebrate the Festival of Lights, from the warm glow of holiday candles in the menorah to the fun of family gatherings. But sometimes the excitement of Chanukah, its treasured rituals, and the tradition of gifts can tempt a youngster to misbehave....

Come along on a joyful romp filled with tumbling dreidels and melting gelt as America's favorite prehistoric pals spread a little mischief this season. Children will laugh out loud as dinosaurs fidget, fuss, and stomp through every occasion, while their human parents shift from shock to weary patience.

Filled with warmth and cheer, this new book by the bestselling team of Jane Yolen and Mark Teague makes a perfect gift to be read again and again, year after year. How do dinosaurs say Happy Chanukah? The same way they say Merry Christmas: With an abundance of love, joy, memory, and gratitude.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah?(How Do Dinosaurs...?) The first part of the book is a series of questions about what a dinosaur should not do while celebrating this Jewish feast. The second half of the story is what a good dinosaur should do to observe the holiday. The oversized picture books are filled with amazing illustrations, and brightly colored dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes; in fact every 2-page spread has a different dinosaur. Yolen and Teague have done a great job with the book and we look forward to reading more of them together as a family.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah"Yolen and Teague score a winner with this playful Chanukah story brought to life with bright and engaging illustrations . . . Children will appreciate the larger-than-life dinosaurs and their amusing antics and learn just how to behave during this fun holiday." -Publishers Weekly"A deceptively simple rhyming text . . . serves as a sturdy foundation for the brilliantly humorous illustrations. As with the earlier books, children will love seeing what sorts of trouble the dinosaurs get into while appreciating the loving familial feeling that comes from celebrating the holiday together." -School Library Journal"Bouncy rhymes and humorous illustrations-the images of vivacious large-scale dinosaurs alongside the staid, rather Rockwellian humans are consistently funny-combine to make welcome entries in Yolen and Teague's Dinosaurs series and in holiday book collections." -Horn Book"Entertaining and loving." -Kirkus"The series' star attractions are Teague's colorful and playful dinosaurs, not to be found in any museum." -USA Today
