Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted more To be honest, I was a little disappointed with this book compared to the 'How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah?' book. That one focused on both the social and religious aspects of the holidays. This one is almost a Dinosaur version of 'The Night Before Christmas', with a mix of what a Dinosaur should not do followed by what a good Dinosaur should do on Christmas eve. It would have been interesting to see more of the religious aspects of the holiday covered. That being said, it is a fun book that children will love and enjoy again and again. It could have been just a little more. In this 'How Do Dinosaurs Say …?' series there are now about 10 books; they have sold 14 million copies worldwide and brought laughter, humor and learning together for children and readers of all ages. They are fun books and are well done, just with a little less learning then its counterpart.
