Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—In a story reminiscent of William Steig's Amos and Boris (Farrar, 1971), a dinosaur emerges from his egg much later than his siblings and remains small. He is so tiny that the only safe place for him, away from crushing dinosaur feet, is atop a hill from which vantage point he spots a forlorn "Long Neck" in the distance. Unhappy because he is too small to do anything, the little guy wonders "how a dinosaur that big could possibly be sad." Bravery makes up for size, however, when his entire family becomes stuck in the mud. The little dinosaur risks a dangerous river crossing to bring the huge "Long Neck" to the rescue, and the two become fast friends. Foreman's mixed-media illustrations on full spreads feature some humorous dinosaur close-ups: mother tenderly fanning the wayward egg; father, so large his shape bleeds off the page, shouting, "Come on, egg! Do something!"; and dinosaur neighbors looming over the little one. Adults will enjoy their conflicting advice to the parents about how to hatch their egg. Children who are often left out of the fun because of their size will identify with this littlest dinosaur.—Marianne Saccardi, formerly at Norwalk Community College, CT

Review

'It is the illustrations - as always with this author / illustrator - that make the book special. The colours glow and shimmer, and the round, cuddly shapes of the dinosaurs are not the least bit threatening. If you've never seen a dinosaur smile, you are in for a treat!' Books for Keeps --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

We're loving this story. Reading it almost every night...sometimes back-to-back. Very sweet story with a great message. Great illustrations. Purchased the Greatest Adventure as well and although the story is fun with those amazing illustrations, my son was a little unsettled when the littlest dinosaur was lost in the dark woods. The illustration was done in a way that scared him a little, but after we read through it more and more....he was soon over it. Both are family favorites.

My mother in law got this book for our first son. We now have two more boys and it is 7 years later and the boys are still reading and loving The littlest Dinosaur. Considering buying another one because ours is so old and worn out.
