How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?

Are you having trouble putting your child to bed? Or do you have a child who loves dinosaurs? This book is wonderful because it helps parents with bedtime in a fun and enjoyable way using a subject (dinosaurs) that isn’t normally associated with bed time. The text is simple and the illustrations are a little cartoony and fun.  In addition Mark Teague has hidden the dinosaur’s name in each illustration which is wonderful for the young dinosaur enthusiast who can have fun looking for the name. I highly recommend this picture book.

    This was one of our family’s favorite bedtime stories when the children were younger and I know if I read it tonight to my six year old I would probably have my 9 year old(maybe even the 15 year old) come in and listen. Some of the other dinosaur books Yolen and Teague are good but this one is by far our favorite.

      I really like Teague’s art style, and what kid doesn’t like dinosaurs. Come on! Thanks for weighing in Ember. 🙂
