Amazon.com Review

Snort,
a mean red dinosaur,
Always gets his way.
He told me not to tell you more.
That's all I have to say.

Snort, Dozy, Hey-Ho-Howdy, Sob, Zoomer, Tremble, and Smooch are the "seven nifty dinosaurs in one swell book" by the ever-popular Sandra Boynton. Each dino is given a two-page introduction, with rhyming verse and playful illustrations. Dozy, "a lazy green, / with floppy scales of tangerine," spends her time lying around sipping lemonade. She'd rather eat her birthday cake candles than expend energy blowing them out. Zoomer, on the other hand, is a "jazzy orange dinosaur" who speeds wherever she goes. Then there's Sob, a "sad blue dinosaur," who mopes and sprawls and sighs... until no one's around--"then he gets up and dances"! These fabulous and funny characters, in Boynton's trademark bright blocks of color, make learning about emotions, expressions, and personality types fun for the very small reader. Color-coded picture tabs allow even nonreaders to find their favorite dinosaur at a glance. For another Boynton board book in this format, try Snoozers: 7 Short Short Bedtime Stories for Lively Little Kids. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

I knew "Dinos to Go" would be a hit, (as all her other books are), when my 3-year-old daughter opened the box and exclaimed, "Oh Boy! It's Sandra Boynton!" I had to read it to her immediately and neither one of us were disappointed. In her usual whimsical and rhythmic fashion we were both entertained by seven dinosaurs, each with a different personality, (happy, sad, mean, timid, ect.). This is a great book to help children learn that people have different personalities just like the dinos in the book. I have been reading Sandra Boynton books to my daughter since she was born and will always read each new title, (again and again), as it is available. This is a fun book and is great for any age from newborns to grandmas and grandpas!

Both my 4-year-old and 17-month-old enjoy this great little book. My 4-year-old wants to hear it cover-to-cover. My 17-month-old picks and chooses the stories he likes from the tabs, then runs around saying "Hey-Ho" (for "Hey Ho Howdy," one of the characters). It's also fun for grown-ups, and it would be a great choice for even a 5 or 6-year-old who loves dinosaurs, since there's more text than in most board books.

This is another great book by Boynton.
My son loves this book and so does my daughter.
The drawings are cute and stay on topic. The pictures add to the text rather than being a distraction to the text.
The repetitive nature of the book is great it makes for a good prereading book. I also like the fun words that are not only fun to say but fun to hear.
A real winner.

My girls love this book. I think the book is nice, but the last page is a song which is kind of a pain to read/sing. The rest of the book is fun to read.

My two year old son really likes dinosaurs and this book does a great job in fullfilling his wants. As always the poems are fun for both children and adults. This book contains several different poems and my son enjoys picking out which one he would like to read.

My daughter LOVES dinosaurs. Loves them. She got this book for her birthday and was really excited to read it. I didn't read it first before reading to her with her other bed time stories - kind of a mistake. We usually love Boynton books. The characters chosen in this one are odd. Sob and Tremble and Snort? A few of the others are positive and cute, but those are just an odd choice to me. Sob cries all the time and is mopey - Tremble is afraid of everything - and Snort is mean and has nothing to say. My daughter doesn't understand why there are 'not nice' dinosaurs in her book. We read it twice and talked about it and feelings and all that. It's just that this is a cute idea and one my daughter was excited about, but I'm not sure I'm a fan. I'm not sure there is enough positive to outweigh the negative here.

We love Boyton's books, they are cute and fun for kids. The stories in this book are about two pages long, but that includes graphics. I total the story is likely 4-5 sentences or phrases if you will. It makes a great book to grab when you are trying to wind the kids down and they are fading but fighting it. Perfect for the "just one more" moments for the little, little kids.
