More About the Author

Born and raised in New York City, Jane Yolen now lives in Hatfield, Massachusetts. She attended Smith College and received her master's degree in education from the University of Massachusetts. The distinguished author of more than 170 books, Jane Yolen is a person of many talents. When she is not writing, Yolen composes songs, is a professional storyteller on the stage, and is the busy wife of a university professor, the mother of three grown children, and a grandmother. Active in several organizations, Yolen has been on the Board of Directors of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, was president of the Science Fiction Writers of America from 1986 to 1988, is on the editorial board of several magazines, and was a founding member of the Western New England Storytellers Guild, the Western Massachusetts Illustrators Guild, and the Bay State Writers Guild. For twenty years, she ran a monthly writer's workshop for new children's book authors. In 1980, when Yolen was awarded an honorary Doctor of Law degree by Our Lady of the Elms College in Chicopee, Massachusetts, the citation recognized that "throughout her writing career she has remained true to her primary source of inspiration--folk culture." Folklore is the "perfect second skin," writes Yolen. "From under its hide, we can see all the shimmering, shadowy uncertainties of the world." Folklore, she believes, is the universal human language, a language that children instinctively feel in their hearts. All of Yolen's stories and poems are somehow rooted in her sense of family and self. The Emperor and the Kite, which was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1983 for its intricate papercut illustrations by Ed Young, was based on Yolen's relationship with her late father, who was an international kite-flying champion. Owl Moon, winner of the 1988 Caldecott Medal for John Schoenherr's exquisite watercolors, was inspired by her husband's interest in birding. Yolen's graceful rhythms and outrageous rhymes have been gathered in numerous collections. She has earned many awards over the years: the Regina Medal, the Kerlan Award, the World Fantasy Award, the Society of Children's Book Writers Award, the Mythopoetic Society's Aslan Award, the Christopher Medal, the Boy's Club Jr. Book Award, the Garden State Children's Book Award, the Daedalus Award, a number of Parents' Choice Magazine Awards, and many more. Her books and stories have been translated into Japanese, French, Spanish, Chinese, German, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Afrikaans, !Xhosa, Portuguese, and Braille. With a versatility that has led her to be called "America's Hans Christian Andersen," Yolen, the child of two writers, is a gifted and natural storyteller. Perhaps the best explanation for her outstanding accomplishments comes from Jane Yolen herself: "I don't care whether the story is real or fantastical. I tell the story that needs to be told."

My twin boys love the How do dinosaurs... books and I thought this one sounded like fun. I bought it for them for Christmas thinking that one) they love this book and two) lift-up flaps, another hit with my boys. Additionally, I thought it would be fun to read together with my wife who loves those of the jokes printed on Popsicle sticks. Those jokes are corny but it is part of the charm. We opened it and sat down to read and were all sorely disappointed. The pictures in this book were all taken from other How do dinosaurs... books and most of the jokes were really, really dumb, several don't even make sense. There is no corny charm like with the Popsicle stick, no new pictures for the boys to look at, and the lift the flaps didn't appeal since there was only text beneath them. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone, even if they're huge How do dinosaurs... fans.

I just put this book into the recycling bin....that's how bad it is. I thought about donating it, but then I thought about the poor family that might pick it up on impulse (the illustrations are compelling) only to realize what a mistake they had made and I couldn't do it. Neither my five-year-old nor my three-year-old were even remotely engaged, and they are both obsessed with dinosaurs. Not only are the jokes not funny (they're not clever at all - horribly forced), but the overall tenor of the book completely misses the mark. The worst Dino book I've ever seen.

My 4-year-old son loved this book. He loves lift-the-flap books, but combine that with dinosaurs and punny jokes (especially the one about being a stinkasaurus) and he laughed his way through the book. He wants me to read it to him over and over again. Great for boys or girls who are into dinosaurs and silly jokes.

My 4yr old son LOVES this book! We actually ordered it through Schoolastic at his school and it was so well received, that when i needed birthday gifts for 2 of his favorite, dinosaur-loving classmates, i turned to Amazon. Both children were very happy with them as well! Such a fun book to read together! My son loves to lift the flaps and hear me dramatically deliver the punchline after reading the first part of the joke :)
Ive recommended this book to countless others!

My boys, 4 and 3, both love the serious of "how do dinosaurs" books including this one. It's a little different as far as when reading it has the pop ups to answer the questions as opposed to the regular style of the books but if your children like dinosaurs, you can't go wrong.

This book was cute. The puns are incredibly corny and require an older kid to understand them at all. I got it as a gift for my 2-year-old and he will definitely not understand most of them without explaining which ruins the joke. The pictures are nice, but we don't have any other books from this series so the re-use of pictures that other reviewers mentioned doesn't bother us.

Watch out for the flap on the top of the bathtub page-- it is very close to the top of the book and easily rips off the first time you open it before it has a nice loose crease. I had to re-glue it.

My daughter loved the previous books in the series (Go to Bed, Go to School, Go to the Doctor, and [whatever the 4th book is]).

That was two years ago, age ~4.

She's now 6 and she only gave this one (and the Cats & Dogs ones) a cursory read-through, and now they're collecting dust on the shelf... I liked the art , so I'm kinda bummed out!

My kids love the How Does A Dinosaur books. This new release is a lift the flap, laugh out loud, joke book. Each page has a fun joke and when the flap is lifted, the answer is revealed. Some jokes were a little over my kid's head, but for the most part they understood them and laughed out. This is a good read and I would recommend this book to all How Do Dinosaur fans.
