The rhymes are somewhat forced, especially toward the end of the book, but Teague's marvelous paintings are bright and expressive throughout. Each dinosaur is cleverly labeled, and these aren't your run-of-the-mill dinos; dinosaur-obsessed little ones will crow over Parasaurolophus, Euoplocephalus, and Tuojiangosaurus. They'll also learn a little something about how to behave when they're sick. --Jennifer Lindsay

I am always amazed at how versitile Jane Yolen is. When my own little dinosaur finally drifts off to sleep, I can enjoy reading another chapter of her new novel GIRL IN A CAGE.
My only complaint is that my daughter may be too old when the next one comes out! Hurry Jane, hurry!
The book covers ten dinosaurs -- Brachiosaurus, Carnotaurus, Dilophosaurus, Euoplocephalus, Gallimimus, Parasaurolophus, Styracosaurus, Tropeognathus, Tuojiangosaurus, and Velociraptor. All of them appear so friendly that your child just might invite them over the next time he's sick. Moreover, they are anatomically correct, insofar as they can be for cartoon like illustrations.
One of the most interactive pieces of the book is that each illustration has hidden within it the name of the dinosaur. Everytime my son and I read this book he seeks out the dinosaur's name. It's a dino I Spy game for him.
He's also fascinated with the fact that he can match the dinosaurs from the inside covers (front and back) with those within the story.
Of course, beautiful illustrations are important, but so is the story line. This one is done well. The illustrations show the dinosaurs engaging in all sorts of antics so familiar to parents of ill preschoolers. In the end, the dinosaurs do the right thing, "He drinks lots of juice, and he gets lots of rest." Fans of "How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight" will notice that the story ending is almost identical to that book -- our dino friend closes his eyes and whispers good night.
Overall, I would recommend this book for dinosaur loving preschoolers! It is beautiful, interactive and well written. However, if your already a fan of the first book, you may find this one to be a repeat of the first with a slightly different topic.
