Believe it or not, but I actually stumbled upon this book at the library. I had never heard of the How Do Dinosaurs... series until I found the Get Well Soon book just minding its own business on a quiet shelf.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

It sounded intriguing, so I checked it out and read it to my kids. Well, I thought that I had just made the greatest discovery in children's books! This was brilliant! I thought, there should be more of these dinosaur books. They are funny, insightful, and teach good behavior all in rhyming prose. The illustrations were detailed and humorous. This should be a series!
Turns out, it is. There are oodles of these How Do Dinosaurs...? books out there, and the brand is getting better known every day. Jane Yolen and Mark Teague make a fantastic pair when it comes to children's picture books.
The text is fun to read. You will never miss a beat as you read Yolen's flawless rhyming and rhythm. It also gives you the opportunity to sneak in behavioral lessons to your child, all in the name of entertainment. The best part is, it comes across as reassuring, not preachy.
The illustrations stick life-sized dinosaurs into kid-sized situations, making for lots of laughs from both you and your child.
