So the book goes through all of the "bad" bedtime behavior you don't want your kid to do and I think it is giving my daughter ideas! At the end, the dinosaur is really cute and has perfect bedtime behavior but the whole beginning makes me cringe at the thought of my daughter picking up on it lol

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By J. Marren on April 29 2004
Format: Hardcover
This imaginative book features a large cast of "real" dinosaurs acting as naughty as real kids do when it's bedtime. I loved the pictures of exasperated parents as a huge brontosaurus throws covers on the floor or a tyrannasaurus rex runs around the room. My second grade niece, a good reader, handles the text with ease but isn't too old to be tickled by the concept. Younger siblings like this one too. Inside the front cover is a chart with small drawings of the characters and their scientific names--an educational bonus!

My husband bought this book for our son and it has quickly become his favorite bed time story. He loves the illustrations and when we combine the actions with the story (give a big hug, kiss goodnight, turn out the light) he knows it's time for bed. It's become part of our nightly bedtime routine.

By E. R. Bird on April 11 2004
Format: Hardcover
I'm always pleased when an author and an illustrator of equal talents are placed together by a clever editor so as to produce a wonderful piece of picture book art. Jane Yolen is the author of, honest to goodness, more than two hundred books for both children and adults. Just pause a while and marvel at her consistency, if you will. Mark Teague may not have that many works under his belt, but what he lacks in proliferation he makes up for in downright fabulous illustrating. If you've read his charming "Dear Mrs. LaRue: Letters From Obedience School" then you are aware of how amazingly adept this man is. Taking those monstrous creatures co-opted by children as their favorite animals, Yolen and Teague have created a book that proves what we've suspected all along. Your children are merely little dinosaurs in disguise.
The premise of this book is simple. Sleepy dinosaurs do NOT want to go to bed at night. The book ponders just how exactly these dinos do say their goodnights to their parents. The parents in this book, by the way, are always human while their dinosaur offspring fill their bedrooms from ceiling to floor. So how do dinosaurs say good night? Well, they can insist on reading one more book. They can fall onto their beds in tears. They can slam their tails about and pout too. But no, my friends. In the end, dinosaurs do none of these things. Instead, they give their parents a big kiss and a hug, tuck their tales into their beds, and say good night. Just like a good little dinosaur should.
The hope after reading this tale is that kids will understand that all the naughty behavior exhibited by the dinosaurs in the early parts of the book will be negated by the good behavior exhibited at the end. How well this works, I do not know. One thing is for certain, however.

Format: Hardcover
I recently purchased this book for my 2-year old son and he instantly fell in love with it. The book features a series of large and colorful illustrations of dinosaurs [what little boy wouldn't like this?] with the theme of "mommy and daddy trying to get them to go to bed". The names of the dinosaurs are cleverly placed in the illustrations which gives the book some educational value.

This is an adorable book. Children love the rhyming prose. I read this book to my students today and they were thoroughly engrossed. Mark Teague has done another great job illustrating a book. I have left the book out for the kids to revisit it; they can go back to each illustration to try to find the name of the illustrated dinosaur somewhere in the room. You'll love this book , too.

This is really a cute book. The illustrations are warm and friendly. I like how subtly the names of the dinosaurs appear ... sometimes spelled out with blocks or on a bedstead. (Thank goodness they're identified otherwise I wouldn't know them all.)
The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that the story was a little weak and it's a little pricey although for the size and illustrations it is justified.

For those of us who have ever wondered how do dinosaurs say good-night, Jane Yolen and Mark Teague have provided what should remain the definitive answer. This book is a delight with its large, colourful drawings and its bouncy rhythm. The added joy of the plush toy dinosaur with its little teddy bear and its blanket knocks this book over the top. The larger size stuffie is the better choice over its smaller version but either will continue the book's pleasure. Another little jewel of this picture book are the images on the front and back covers of a variety of dinosaurs with their actual names. This book is a keeper.
