Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"These prehistoric monsters are just perfect for the preschool crowds. A natural for story time." —School Library Journal

"The pictures and swingy short verses will make this a good read-aloud even for the very young." —Booklist

Barnes & Noble Staff
This simple book of oppsites uses dinosaurs to reach its audience. The clever rhyming text ("dinosaur sweet, dinosaur grumpy, dinosaur spiky and dinosaur lumpy") speaks directly to toddlers, and Strickland uses bright swirls of color to illustrate his friendly and expressive dinosaurs. Put it all together, and you have one catchy reptilian romp.
Booklist

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The original book was quite successful, but this bath book version is quite different. A few of the concepts-fierce/meek, strong/weak, etc. come through, but it is not enough to be really effective. 1998 (orig.
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
What a great idea to teach concepts...using children's most beloved characters...dinosaurs! The Stricklands have collaborated to bring to life dinosaurs that illustrate concepts such as clean and slimy, grumpy and lumpy and more. All are illustrated in glorious double-page spreads. They are funny and endearing while giving perfect visual representation to the concepts. 1997 (orig.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-A simple rhyme to tickle the fancy of the youngest dino fans. ``Dinosaur roar,/dinosaur squeak,/dinosaur fierce,/ dinosaur meek...'' Whether weak or strong, fast or slow, etc., these colorful, slightly daft-looking creatures introduce a series of opposites as they parade across the double-page spreads. And where are the beasts marching? To eat their lunch ``gobble, gobble, nibble, nibble, munch, munch, scrunch!'' While the appealing watercolors are not scientifically accurate enough to suit avid dinosaurians, these prehistoric monsters are just perfect for the preschool crowd. A natural for story time.-Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE
