Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1–Eleven species of dinosaurs are shown doing what they love to do, from stomping to swishing their tails to gulping down leaves. “Immense Diplodocus loved swish, swish, swishing, long tail flicking and fast whip, whipping, enemy surprising and–smack!–scaring. So swish, Diplodocus, swish!” Individual spreads show typical behavior for each, but the final page imagines them “in a grand parade with no fighting allowed and no one afraid!” Endpapers label the various dinosaurs with their names and pronunciations. The cut-paper collage illustrations are bold and bright, blocky and stylized. The colors pop and the scenes are full of movement. The swirling layout of the variously sized text reinforces the dynamic feeling of the illustrations, but makes the words difficult to read. This problem is compounded because the story features some mildly challenging vocabulary and a somewhat awkward rhythm. The look and feel of the book aim it at a very young audience, while the length and level of the text may not hold their attention. The topic and compelling illustrations will capture children's attention, whether or not they engage with the text. However, with so many dinosaur books available, there is little reason to settle for anything less than stellar.–Heidi Estrin, Feldman Children's Library at Congregation B'nai Israel, Boca Raton, FLα(c) Copyright 2010.

Love the pictures, and the action words for each dinosaur. My grandson identifies each dinosaur with the action. He has memorized each dinosaur.

I checked this one out of the library when I realized how much my 3-year-old grandson loves dinosaurs (who knew?) He liked the book so much, I purchased it here on Amazon and gave it to him for his birthday.

My 4-year old grandson loves this book! His face lights up as he names the dinosaurs and points out little details in the illustrations.
