Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-In this addition to the popular series, 10 more mischievous dinosaurs are acting up, this time during the eight nights of Hanukkah. With their characteristic childlike antics, these dinos fuss and fidget during the menorah blessings, blow out the Hanukkah candles, write their own name on all the presents, and squeeze the Hanukkah gelt until it melts. Yet by the fifth night, they are singing the prayers, sharing the dreidel, helping with the dishes, and spending time with the grandparents. While there is nothing particularly new about this title, the tried-and-true formula works here, namely a deceptively simple rhyming text that serves as a sturdy foundation for the brilliantly humorous illustrations. As with the earlier books, children will love seeing what sorts of trouble the dinosaurs get into while appreciating the loving familial feeling that comes from celebrating the holiday together.-Teri Markson, Los Angeles Public Library α(c) Copyright 2011.

I love Jane Yolen's Dinosaur books because they not only teach behavior expectations but give non-examples as well. My classroom has a large well-used bin of them. I celebrate Hanuka but most of my students don't. This book gives the essentials of the holiday in a fun, engaging way. I also bought the Xmas book so my students can teach me about their holiday. I find asking a pouting/angry child "Does a dinosaur pout/stamp about?" helps them change their behavior gracefully. Read these, even to older children.

Since the first book in 2000 the 'How Do Dinosaurs Say ...?' series has been very popular. In 2012 two new books are being added to the others in the series and they should both be great fun for readers of all ages. Across the series more than 14 million books have been sold and brought together laughter, learning and fun to children around the world.

The first part of the book is a series of questions about what a dinosaur should not do while celebrating this Jewish feast. The second half of the story is what a good dinosaur should do to observe the holiday. The oversized picture books are filled with amazing illustrations, and brightly colored dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes; in fact every 2-page spread has a different dinosaur. Yolen and Teague have done a great job with the book and we look forward to reading more of them together as a family.

Cute book but why are all the dinosaurs boys? I actually had to go through and change a bunch of masculine pronouns to feminine with a sharpy. How could a female author not realize that 1. girls can like dinosaurs too and 2. it might benefit boys to not think all dinosaurs are male.

This is a really great Chanukah book for children ages 2-6 years old & all adults. Through funny examples, it shows kids that they shouldn't act as the dinosaur and act up with Chanukah lights, fidget and fuss through the candlelight prayer, blow out the candles when no one is there, search for presents hidden in the house. Kids will want to be like the good dinosaur who wishes bubbe and zayde a good Chanukah and clears dishes after the latkes have been finished.

I loved the pictures in the book and so did all the children who read it with me. I find something else to laugh about each time that I read the book. This book is definitely a winner and the perfect Chanukah present for any young child.

Those fabulous dinosaurs obviously come from a multicultural home, since this year the celebrated author and illustrator team have released both a Christmas and Chanukah title featuring the adorable dinosaurs of How do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? and so many other beloved picture books and board books. Toddlers and preschoolers will surely giggle to see their favorite dinosaurs being mischievous and squeezing the Chanukah gelt (chocolate coins), fidgeting during prayers, and more. Of course they eventually learn the proper way to behave, and how to enjoy the holiday as well. This is a great one to read aloud to younger children, or to purchase as a Hanukkah gift.

bought a couple of these for nephews at Hanukkah & was disappointed. So excited for theme, but execution was not great. Could be a holiday favorite, but fear weak story & so so illustrations will sink this book.

My 2.5 year old daughter loves this book. It came this week in the mail from P.J. Library, and she wants to read it several times a day - at least twice each sitting! It has a fantastic message, and it would definitely appeal to boys just as well as girls. Very cute book.

A hilarious story for kids 3-8 years old about Chanukah. Your children will shout, "No!" to the dinosaurs' naughty antics in the first half of the book, and learn about correct practices on Chanukah in the second half. The illustrations are marvelous, with marvelously expressive faces on the human characters. My only concern is that my 3 y o complained that she thought the dinosaurs were too scary at bedtime (although okay during the day ;).
