Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leslie Rounds
This book is a "Step into Reading," Step 1 book that the publisher describes as having "big type and easy words for children who know the alphabet and are eager to begin reading." Lively green dinosaurs leap out of a library book, sneak into a class, practice the alphabet and counting, and head out to recess. When the bell rings, they race back to the school library and return to the pages of the book. Rhyming words and visual clues provide some help to make this a positive reading experience for beginners. Most of the vocabulary should be accessible for children who have been reading for a while, but words like "jiggling" and "wiggling" will be challenging for even those children, and visual clues do not help there. Like many early readers, the difficulty of the text exceeds the publisher's description. Parents looking for books that will provide rewarding experiences for the earliest readers "who know the alphabet" (the level the publisher says this book is appropriate for) will find this title to be more than they bargained for.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Dancing dinosaurs leap off the pages of a book and suddenly appear in the school library. From there, the playful green friends peek and sneak into a classroom and onto the playground while creating a swirl of excitement for the school librarian and a boy who follow their escapades. The bold, bouncy illustrations and one-sentence rhyming text make this book a concrete purchase. It is perfect for beginner readers.-Tracy Bell, Eastway Elementary School, Durham, NC Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Half a dozen lime-green dinosaurs are the stars of this delightful easy reader that offers most of the best qualities of the genre: rhyming text, a jolly rhythm, funny characters and lots of action. The well-written, brief text follows the dancing dinosaurs in a school-library setting as they dance right out of the pages of an open book and into mischief around the school and playground. The librarian, an African-American woman with glasses, and one male student follow the dinosaurs, but the action focuses firmly on the out-of-control dinosaurs. Though this is intended for new readers who are just starting to sound out words, both the storyline and appealing art are strong enough to work as a read-aloud for younger children as well. These dancing dinos have legs, and they ought to pop back out of their book for more rollicking adventures for new readers. (Easy reader. 4-7)
