Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Roar! Roar! Roar! Feisty little Dinosaur comes out on top of every challenge: writing a letter to Santa, decorating the tree, and making presents for his parents. But the outcome isn't so certain when it comes to being extra good, not to mention staying awake on Christmas Eve. Will Santa put Dinosaur on his naughty list? Never fear, Dinosaur wins every round. Energetic, retro mixed-media illustrations depict Dinosaur in a series of fabulous Christmas sweaters, smothering the bottom third of the tree in ornaments and lights, and roaring his way through the best Christmas ever. A must for most collections.-Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

From Booklist

In this follow-up to Dinosaur vs. the Potty (2010), the rebellious little monster creature gets ready for Christmas. Can he write a letter to Santa? Yes. Roar! Dinosaur wins. It is the same with decorations, gifts for Mom and Dad, and more. Roar! The red and green colors make this a fun Christmas read-aloud for toddlers who will recognize how hard it is not to get things wrong as tension rises during holiday preparations. The climax is when the choo-choo that Dinosaur asked for in his letter appears. Preschool. --Hazel Rochman

My sister in law gave my daughter Dinosaur Vs Bedtime for Christmas in 2011 and she fell in love. She loves all the Dinosaur Vs Books and this one is no different. Bright fun pictures and a delightful story make this story fun for me to watch her read or read to her. Would highly recommend this and all the other Dinosaur Vs books.

I'm really not sure who loves these books more, myself or my five year old son. They're irreverent and funny while Dinosaur is still the basis for a really good kid. Or dinosaur. You know what I mean. ;)

This book, like all of the Dinosaur Vs. books, is totally awesome! I love Bob Shea as a writer. He's got enough humor in his books that the kids get the giggles, but the stories don't get old for the adults. Another excellent, if seasonal, buy.

I bought this book for my 6 month old. She's still too young to "get it" but she likes looking at the pictures and enjoyed the "roaring" in the book. The colors are very bright and the story is cute. I will be purchasing the remainder of the Dinosaur VS. series.

My son loves this series, and when I saw this I knew he had to have it! The story is adorable, as usual. Dinosaur is so much like my four-year-old at Christmastime. It's fun to hear him talk about the things he and Dinosaur do to get ready for Christmas.

Bonus! I didn't know it came with a paper for a letter to Santa! So this would make an awesome gift in preparation for Christmas. My son's birthday is on 12/16, so I just gave it to him then.

Highly recommended to parents of little dinosaurs.

Our grandson is 16 mo. old, and loves this book! What a gem! All the adults who read it to him find themselves often saying: Dinosaur wins!
