Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1-Two brothers wait out a storm. Brannon, the younger one, is afraid of thunder, and with each boom, finds a new place to hide. The grown-ups try to reassure him with well-known salves-the noise is that of "a big cat purring," "angels bowling in heaven," and "clouds bumping together." But Brannon knows about all of those things: a big cat can scratch, bowling pins can fall through the sky, and if clouds bump into one another, maybe one could bump into him. Big brother Chad has the answer; the noise of thunder is "dinosaurs stomping around," and Brannon knows everything about dinosaurs-and nothing about them is scary. He stomps, roars, and rages until a truly frightening boom startles both brothers into Mama's arms. Bauer's rhythmic and simple narrative tells a story to which readers will relate. Chodos-Irvine works her magic with old-fashioned print techniques and rich colors. No new ground is covered here, but the book is lovely for one-on-one sharing nonetheless.-Lisa Egly Lehmuller, St. Patrick's Catholic School, Charlotte, NCα(c) Copyright 2011.

Review

Praise for Dinosaur Thunder

*"Hats off to Bauer (In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb) for turning an emotional truth into a joyful, triumphant story. And thunderous applause for Chodos-Irvine (Light Up the Night), who contributes her best and most elaborate collages to date, alternating scenes of cozy domesticity with Wagnerian visions of what's happening in the heavens above." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

"In this perceptively illustrated take on a common theme, an older brother's comment does more than all the supposed comfort offered by grownups to dispel a child's fear of thunder." -Kirkus

My five year-old is afraid of thunderstorms. My mom is a children's librarian (her second career after retiring from teaching kindergarten) and she borrowed this book for my daughter. I wasn't sure she'd get much from it -- we've had other books about storms. I was shocked to find that she LOVED this book. She decide that maybe the thunder she was hearing were My Little Ponies kicking their stalls in cloud stable or Rainbow Dash racing around making sonic booms. She had me read it every night for a week. I decided we should own a copy as it was really helping my daughter laugh at the thunder.

My 2 year old is afraid of thunder, so this is the perfect book for us. In the book, one of the children is scared by thunder. However, he sees how different things can cause thunder, including dinosaurs. :) It's a fun book to think of what could be causing thunder as well as showing your child that it's okay to be scared of things.

I checked this book out of our local library for my 3 year old son. He loves dinosaurs and all the funny noises you can make while reading this book. Will be ordering this book for his Easter basket! He wants his own copy!!

It's my grandson's favorite book. First time we read it was at the library, he didn't want to return it. So glad I was able to purchase it from Amazon. Great read, especially before bedtime.

It is fun to act out the different thunder noises with kiddos. My four year old has memorized the book, we've read it so many times!
