Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Barton's economical book does not scrimp on details or ebullient hues. In colors straight out of a crayon box he provides children with a genuine "first" dinosaur book. The endpapers provide a vivid glossary of dinosaurs, with names and phonetic pronunciations underneath each picture. And then the sweet text: "A long time ago there were dinosaurs. There were dinosaurs with horns and dinosaurs with spikes . . . . There were fierce dinosaurs and scared dinosaurs." That particular line is illustrated with a black cloudy sky and jagged yellow lightning; the simple expressions of fear on the dinosaurs' faces will reassure readers that even these mightiest of creatures could have been afraid of the same things children are. Ages 3-6.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-- Barton's radiant pallette of Play-Doh colors is perfect for dinosaurs. His illustrations capture the plasticity and vividness of children's own artwork, without patronizing or making fun of his young audience. More than Gibbons' Dinosaurs (Holiday, 1987) or Aliki's My Visit to the Dinosaurs (Crowell, 1985), Barton conveys the primordial sense of excitement that draws children to these beasts. Despite the illustrations' simplicity, Barton's dinosaurs' expressions are not mammalian smiles; they have a saurian quality all their own. The endpapers identify the creatures by scientific name and pronunciation. Barton wisely keeps his text simple, describing dinosaurs only by size and physical features ("There were dinosaurs with sails on their backs, and dinosaurs with hard bony heads"), letting his drawings portray who owned which horns, teeth, tail, and spikes. This superb introduction for the very young shares the excitement of dinosaurs with its audience, without tangling their attention spans in boring details.

This book is a must have for reading time. My one year old boy has loved it since birth (well almost birth)! He really likes the part about "Long sharp claws and long sharp teeth! " It brings the house down. Yet, it still ends with a sleepy touch.
Get it... or regret it!

It is a good book and I enjoyed the book a lot and I liked the pictures. This book can tell you about dinosaurs and what their different body parts are called. Some of them ate meat and some of them ate plants. The dinosaurs lived a long time ago.

My 2 yr. old son loves dinosaurs and we got this book at our library. Practically every page was ripped (seemingly by the hands of other dino-loving toddlers) and mended with strips of tape. I am dreading the return of this book to our library so I am purchasing it for a low price here. It has simple & bright pictures and short text for short attention spans. It even ends with "sleepy dinosaurs" with their eyes closed for that perfect segway to bedtime!

I bought this based on reviews for a "4s" classroom read-aloud for my child's in-class birthday celebration. It was a yawner. Okay, very cute but WAY too simplistic and short versus what I expected. It is truly board-book quality and quantity material. Ma 3-5 words per page. In fact, it has less content than your average Boynton board book. Anyway, perfect for what it is but, if you're looking for Pre-K or K readers, keep looking. Younger targets readers will also like Bones, Bones, Dinosaur Bones. Fun!

My nephew is getting to the dinosaur age so among other things for his birthday he received this book, a jumbo growing dinosaur egg and some dinosaur bath bombs - he loved them all. He's three and even though I thought the book was a little young for him seeing he is a smart cookie, he still enjoyed it.

This is my son's favorite, and mine too! Although he's only six months old, I've been reading to him almost every day since he was old enough to pay attention, and he has loved this book from the word go - probably because of the bright colors and simple shapes, but maybe also because when I read it to him it's fun to make "dinosaur noises" and roars, which he finds very entertaining. Although I have read this book so often that I have literally memorized it, I'm not tired of it yet, and that's about as high a recommendation for a baby book as I can make!

Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs is, at the moment, my baby's favorite book. I spread a different set of four books out on the floor in front of her every morning, and she always chooses this one first if it's there. She turns the pages herself, and seems to favor kentroasuarus (orange dinosaur with spikes) and tyrannosaurus rex (dinosaur with long, sharp claws and long, sharp teeth). It's really fun to see!

Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs is also one of my favorite baby books. I love Byron Barton's illustration style with big, bold colors, and I like his simple writing style, too. I also get a kick out of the fact that a volcano erupts every time T-Rex comes on the scene. I guess he's just that awesome.

This set of board books (I have a lot from Byron Barton, including: Boats, Planes, Machines at Work, and Trains) stands up very well to its exposure to a teething, drooling baby who still spits up on her books regularly and is determined to turn the pages for herself -- enthusiastically. That is to say, we abuse -- I mean, read -- this book daily, and it's still in quite good shape. A little wear and tear at the edges of the pages where the gumming has been particularly vigorous, but otherwise fine.

My only lament about this book, and board books in general, is that they are nearly always abridged. I have the paperback version of this book, too, and it has some extra pages in it, including triceratops mommy laying her eggs and the pachycephalosaurses head-butting it out. Without the battle of the bony-headed dinosaurs, the pachycephalosaurus on the last page of the book seems like an afterthought.

Oh well. I still love this book, and Elsie just has something to look forward to when she's big enough for paper books (if Dinosaurs Dinosaurs is still a favorite by then).

I had a smaller hard cover version of this book and lost it. Just as well because this larger paper back version will be better to read to my preschool class. This is a good introductory book to present to young children and particularly those with special needs as the text and illustrations are extremely clear and simple.
