Parents and children can never find enough ways to say love you and now, America's favorite dinosaurs are saying it in a very big way! Even when little dinosaurs are naughty, it's important to remind them that no matter what they do, they are always loved. In this warm and engaging book, readers will laugh aloud as parents cope with the typical antics of childhood but in the end, hugs and kisses show how much they care.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You? (How Do Dinosaurs...?) by Jane Yolen I was really bothered by this one. I know that the message is two-fold: here is the right way to show that you love someone (words, hugs, and kisses) and parents will love you no matter what you do. But I can see a kid getting the idea from this that you can get away with all kinds of naughty things as long as you turn around and tell your parents that you love them, or give them hugs and kisses afterwards. Perhaps this should be read to children accompanied by discussion?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from how does a dinosaur say "I loved it!" This children's book is filled with such lovely and large stimulating illustrations. The illustrations were my incentive to buy this book but the story itself is also well suited to my preschooler's life. The creative rhymes keep my 3 year old daughter turning the pages wanting more. We usually have to read this book at least three times before she will let me put it down.
