Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1. One morning, a young dinosaur wakes up in the mood to have fun stomping and tromping over everything in his way. He starts by slamming the door on the cat's tail as he leaves home. Then he jumps in the pond and splashes the other animals. He frightens them with his jumping and pouncing, until he suddenly hears a loud "STOMP!" Someone much larger and louder than the little dinosaur has arrived on the scene to subdue him?his mother. With just a few words per page, the jaunty watercolor illustrations convey much of the story line?the dinosaur's glee in harassing the other animals, and his chagrin when Mother makes him stop. Children will identify with the little reptile's desire to feel "big" and important. Good as an enthusiastic read-aloud, where the rhymes and energy of the text can be appreciated.?Elizabeth Trotter, Scott County Public Library, Georgetown, KY

From Kirkus Reviews

In about three dozen words, Kolar chronicles the noisy progress of a small green dinosaur who is stomping his (or her) way through the neighborhood. He merrily stomps out of his home (leaving a disgruntled parent behind), clomps over the hills, trounces, pounces, and whoop-de-dos, shaking the ground, rattling his cohorts, booting all those in his path. ``Thump./Whump!/Look at me!/Stomp, stomp!/Ya-hoo!/Hop./Plop!'' He is a runaway freight train, a loose cannon in a vaguely prehistoric world (a lion and horse make an appearance), until that parent re-materializes to deliver an even greater stomp and bring mayhem to a close. The appeal of this book is directly proportional to the vigor with which it is read aloud. It's not very substantial, otherwise, although the color scheme--lime, aqua, and purple--of the wet-on- wet watercolors seems as willfully crazy as the small hero.

I found this book at a half price bookstore and I was intending to use it in my kindergarten classroom when we talk about otomotpias. Needless to say, it never ended up in my classroom. I read it to my one year old ,(16 months now), one night and ever since then it has been her favorite book. When I read it, I make sure that I really get into the book. I say the words like they're meant to be said. Loud and rambuncious. She loves it! When we get to the part that says "Hee Hee", she covers her mouth and says it too. It's really cute. We've read this book so much, that she knows what pages say what. All I have to do is show her the page and she either does "Hee Hee", "Yahoo", "Bye-Bye", etc. I could go on and on about this book, but just take my word for it. It's definitly worth buying for your toddler.

My 13month old boy loves this book. He wants to hear the sounds over and over. Not too wordy so it keeps his attention. It's very cute and always gets lots of smiles. Kolar needs to write more of these!

My 20 month old daughter loves this book and will "read" it to herself. My older daycare children also like the book for the pictures. It's a favorite at our house!
