Product Description

From Booklist

"The game begins at half past six, / when dinos grab their hockey sticks." Rhyming couplets set the scene for a fantastical sports event: a hockey game played between opposing dinosaur teams: the Meat-Eaters and the Veggiesaurs. Gott's action-filled paintings amplify the sports moves and the players' comically exaggerated expressions, from the scowling face off between T. Rex and Tricera to the jubilant postgame celebration, covered by eager dino newscasters. Kids new to hockey may need help visualizing terms such as assist and check, but even if they don't have a full grasp of specifics, many children will be caught up by the inventive premise, the slapstick humor, and the energy in the words and pictures. By sorting teams by herbivores and carnivores, this also sneaks in a science lesson that is reinforced with a scoreboard visual. A final page promises a soccer-field sequel. Engberg, Gillian --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

My boys are sports fanatics and love dinosaurs and they absolutely LOVE these books. We have read each book - hockey, soccer, baseball and basketball each many many times and have football on order. I am even buying a set for my school library! I love these books because they are fun to read, have great pictures and have an easy rhythm which is nice for bedtime stories. My oldest even has a couple of the books memorized! I LOVE these books, buy them, you won't be disappointed.

Educational and amusing. Jan. 8 2009
By akmommaof2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding Verified Purchase
We have had this book about 30 hours, and I think we've read it 15 times. My 3 year old, who is hockey obsessed, can't get enough of this book. It has great illustrations - and as a bonus, we are learning the names of dinosaurs. It also has a couple good sports lessons - never give up, play fair and yet, its only a game. I think that this is guarateed to be a family favorite.

This is a very cute book. My boys love both dinosaurs and hockey and this book is the perfect mix of both. My 2 year old and 6 year old both love it, and it is fun for mommy and daddy to read. The pictures are great!

Dinos for hockey lovers... May 7 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
My 2 year old is a hockey nut. We got this for him and he loved it instantly. The book has wonderful illustrations and identifies all of the different kinds of dinosaurs. The wording (rhyming) makes it so fun to read that my 3 year old daughter likes it to even though it's not pink.

Best book ever for my 3 year old dino enthusiast! Jan. 26 2008
By bee mommy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
What an excellent book! The writing is clever and the illustrations are amazing -- they have a lifelike quality and you can almost hear the dinos roaring. The illustrations manage to look appropriately frightening yet friendly at the same time, and my 3 year old can't get enough of this book. The best part is, the adults love reading it as much as the kids because it is so entertaining and exciting to read. The author uses the real names of the dinos, so it also is quite educational. The meateaters vs. veggiesaurs theme helped my toddler understand the different types of dinosaurs. What a cute touch that each dinosaur has his name on his hockey jersey and on the scoreboard. There are also several subtle yet important lessons that come out, such as when you behave badly you go in the "penalty box." And of course after insisting on reading this book at least 6 times per day, my toddler even finally understands how to play hockey and other ball games by analogy. This is one of the best children's books I've seen for a young dinosaur enthusiast.
My Daughter picks another winner. May 25 2009
By Mathew A. Shember - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
This is a cute little story about a hockey match between meat and plant eating dinosaurs.

My girl likes both hockey and dinosaurs so it was easy to understand why she picked it. She also likes the type if illustration that is used in this book. Just for the artwork alone; the book is worth it.

It is also a well crafted story. It reads like a game announcer who is telling the game in rhyme.

A good story for bedtime but read it first as it is all but guaranteed to keep your child awake for the want to look at the pictures.

Now on to Dino-Soccer!
