A wonderful book for any dino-lover, and even more special because the author decided to use the pronoun "she" in this book. As a child *obsessed* with dinosaurs, and now a mom to a nearly two-year-old daughter who also enjoys playing and learning about dinosaurs, I was pleasantly surprised to see that this book decided to not only include, but warmly invite girls into the dino genre.

As to the reviewers who somehow feel that their sons' masculinity is being threatened by this... are you serious?! How very sad for the boys being raised by mothers who feel their sons' sense of self is so fragile that a simple pronoun change can and will endanger everything their gender identifies with. These are likely the same mothers/parents who would ridicule and belittle young boys who might play with dolls, or engage in role-playing activities involving dressing up. Girls have every right to enjoy dinosaurs, and authors of dinosaur books for children have every right to include BOTH boys and girls in their stories.

This weekend my Goddaughter's little brother is turning one. His parent's are throwing him an awesome dinosaur themed birthday party. This book is perfect for such an occasion.

First, in full disclosure, I am the Godfather/uncle to a handful of small children, but I do not have any of my own. I come from a family of librarians who give books as gifts- so I have a good idea of what children's books work and do not work, and what they can take as far as abuse goes. But that being said, I want to put that that caveat out there to help appropriately shade my review.

This is a board book- my only concern with the book is that the spine pops out while it is open. I imagine that an exuberant toddler may tear of the spine fairly quickly. But, that is half the fun of board books. They are meant to be enjoyed as a snack more than enjoyed as a literary masterpiece.

I like this book for several additional reasons. First, it rhymes, which is always nice for kids. It helps them memorize the story. Secondly, it has some progressive ideals that are good to expose children to early. It using female pronouns through the book- so the story of the dinosaurs is told through questions and answers: Does she X, or does she Y? No, she Z's. Etc.

It also features interracial parent's in one scene - you can see I have feature that picture with this review.

And it teaches good manners. The dinosaurs don't throw fits or tantrums or not share- instead they help out and say thanks.

It does all of this without making a point of it- so it normalizes all of these things early.

It is a great little story that I think the toddler will enjoy, as will his parents.

I have many of these dinosaur books that I bought for my grandsons. They love them, especially the four year old. I am also a preschool teacher and have read them in the classroom. What four year old doesn't love dinosaurs!

I bought this for my son who LOVES dinosaurs. He already has several books from this series. I like how the dinosaurs names are by their pictures in the story. It makes answering what kind of dino they are a lot easier,lol. This book was good, and the series is great. I would recomend it for any child who loves dinosaurs.

My Grandsons love these books so I make sure I have a couple in my car. For boys who love dinosaurs and parents who are kept busy teaching good manners etc. these books benefit everyone. I would highly recommend books by Jane Yolen.

My six year old nephew loves the books in this series, so of course he got this one for his sixth birthday. Now he is beginning to read them by himself. Fortunately, he still lets me read them to him, which is fun for both of us.

I purchased this for a 3 year old's birthday. She loves dinosaurs and it is her birthday so it is a perfect gift. My son has another book by this author so I was expecting a hard cover book with paper pages, instead we got a midsized book with thick hard pages. Don't get me wrong it is better than I expected! Little ones can be a bit rough on their books so having the thick hard pages works out better! It is wonderful book with fantastic illustrations. I definitely recommend!
