Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—A new cast of brightly colored dinosaurs appears in this charming back-to-school story. The text's easy rhyme and rhythm will be familiar to those who have read other books in this series, and Teague's charismatic and naughty dinosaurs will continue to delight readers with their antics and exuberance. The illustration accompanying "DOES A DINOSAUR YELL?" is sure to elicit smiles as an excited Herrerasaurus leaps out of his chair proudly holding up a newly lost tooth. His teacher looks annoyed, but his classmates all turn toward him with their own gap-toothed grins. The 10 dinosaurs that appear are identified on the endpapers where each is hard at work or play. Stygimoloch using one arm to prop up his raised hand as he blurts out is also likely to draw a smile from veteran teachers. A fun read-aloud for the first day of school.—Neala Arnold, St. Francis Elementary School, MN

From Booklist

This eighth entry (counting the two board books) in the Yolen/Teague How Do Dinosaurs series features a cast of 10 brightly colored dinosaurs that manage to dominate the double-page spreads without overwhelming them. Questions arise when the dinos are put in common school-day situations. Would dinosaurs walk to school or carpool? Would they stomp and make a fuss on the bus? Would they roughhouse and punch and disrupt the class by yelling or fidgeting with their tails in the air? Of course not. Before they leap out the door at the end of the school day, readers will realize that these dinosaurs are helpful, tidy, and protective, "growling at the bullies till the bullying ends." Yolen's short, rhyming text and Teague's irresistible, cavorting dinosaurs perfectly convey how dinosaurs could behave in school, large and powerful though they may be. Fans of the other titles in the series will welcome this new lesson on how to behave properly yet manage to remain a true dinosaur. Randall Enos

This delightful read-along shows not so much how a dinosaur goes to school, but what it does when it gets there. Does it fidget in class? Roar out of turn? Disrupt the class? No! It raises its hand, helps its classmates and tidies up its desk! With fun, detailed illustrations that cover each page spread, this book is fun to look at as well as read, just like all the earlier titles.

Great book for a grandson going into pre-k this fall. I think it will help him understand things a lot.

We love this series and own several of the other "How do Dinosaurs.." This one is very cute and perfect to read to kids at the beginning of the school year. My boys are 5 and have enjoyed this series for awhile and don't seem to be getting tired of it yet.

My son has Asperger's and has been main streamed. This book not only has dinosaurs (fabulously illustrated), but it is written in simple language that let's children know what actions are socially acceptable and unacceptable in a classroom setting! Thanks for another GREAT How Do Dinosaurs book!!!

I like the go to bed one much better. My 2.5yo toddler doesn't get the go to bed book yet, she still asks me why every page the dinosaurs look different haha but she just loves that book I'm not even sure exactly what's captivating her so much that she must read it once at bed time every night. And she actually tucks herself in now because of the book. But this school one just not very good, it's confusing as the pictures and text don't match and while the go to bed book hits all the right points (slam tail and pout, throw teddy bear all about, demands another story read, swing neck from side to side, fall on top of covers and cry) I don't feel that the go to school book hits all the right points plus the English wording is just plain odd....that said I think it's only fair that I add that my toddler still like this one just not as much!

My grandson is a 3 1/2 yr old special needs child. He LOVES his Dinosaurs books. He has his mom and dad read at least one of the books to him every night. I have purchased 6 or 8 books to begin his collection. The lessons given through the dinosaurs point of view are so easily understood. There are many children who learn differently. By reading these books over and over with my grandson Gabriel, he has become more aware of others and their feelings at a time when he was unable to comprehend "others feelings" due to his sensory issues. Thank You for writing these Dinosaur Books. I will continue to purchase the books for my grandson as I know there are others geared for children a little older than he is now.

I just love all if Jane Yolen's Dinosaur books. They are fun for children and adults alike. My son easily memorized them when he was very small because he loved them so much. He just loves How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? Awesome book!

While I thought this was a good book, I felt like it focused more on the negative side of being bad versus the "positives" of being good. The art work is beautiful as always. I just need more examples of the good things kids can do at kindergarten, not just what they shouldn't do.
