I just introduced the title to a storytime group and the response was positive. Children and parents sat quietly, excited to see what the dinosaurs will do next. This book, like the others in the series, are perfect for large groups or just one on one time between parent and child.
This book is his new favorite!!!
It does address things like table manners and rude "noises" @ the table -- which is a great thing for a 5 yr old boy who thinks those noises are funny.
Get this and all the "How do Dinosaurs..." books!
Anyway, my 15-month-old twins have loved this book from the very start. Right now they don't understand all the words, but I enjoy reading it to them anyway. The dinosaurs' mannerisms are very apropos, so I get a laugh even though I read and reread the same 15 pages. They absolutely love the vibrant illustrations. Each time we read the book, they point out something new...a cat here, a dog there, the bib on a dinosaur.
Simply put, this is one of our whole family's favorites. I am buying copies to give other parents as gifts.
Our dinosaur obsessed daughter loves it and we read it as our bedtime story at least a few times a week.
We then looked into the other books in the series and bought this and How Do Dinosaurs... Pocket Library.
This book teaches your children about proper table manners. As with the other books in the series, the dinosaurs use inproper table manners most of the way through the book and then of course demonstrate perfect table manners at the end to teach your child.
I do worry about the books teaching your child worse habits before improving them but I think she probably threw a lot of food on the floor before reading this too!
This one doesn't appeal as much as How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? but is still a good fun book for children with dinosaurs and an attempt to teach your children better manners.
I'm afraid when her sibling arrives she'll be disappointed that s/he is not a dinosaur, because she really is charmed by the human parents with dinosaur children.
We read the page about "stick beans up their nose" as "smash beans on their nose" in hopes that she doesn't take that page as a cue to stick food up her nose. Since my sister visited the ER a couple times for the food she'd lodged waaaay up her nose.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who's looking for a fun, entertaining, and educational (somewhat) book for any child from 1-6 years of age, and for their parents too.
How does a dinosaur eat all his food? Does he burp, does he belch, or make noises quite rude? All of these questions, and more, are asked in How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food? by Jane Yolen. The book rhymes its way through a variety of ill-behaved dinosaurs in various settings using bright, colorful illustrations to show the many ways that dinosaurs can make a mess with their meals. Each page asks a silly question of how a dinosaur would eat a meal and you may be surprised by the answers provided in the second half of the book. Teague's illustrations, which are big and colorful, add the necessary humor to make sure the story holds the children's attention to give the message of the importance of good manners. Another nice part of the illustrations is that they show a new dinosaur on each page and label it somewhere in the picture. Young children will absolutely love the different mealtime disasters the dinosaurs create: from the throwing of food to sticking beans up their nose. Older children will be humorously reminded of younger siblings and the troubles parents have with getting them to eat nicely. Parents will appreciate the overall message that even dinosaurs eat properly and with manners. Yes, dinosaurs use their good manners when they eat and reading this book will help your own little dinosaurs learn the importance of using theirs.
