Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
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
The pictures and swingy short verses will make this a good read-aloud even for thevery young.
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

    Love this book

    13 years ago I bought this book for my son. He absolutely loved it! Now I have another boy..(13 years later) and he loves it too! It is great. Sometimes we add a "roar" here and there and he just giggles. Fun illustrations and colors!

    Not profound, but POPULAR!

    My 18 month old son is all over this book! He is picky about some of the others in his bedtime library . . . sometimes he'll let me read them, while other evenings he shakes his head and pushes them away. He's ALWAYS game for Dinosaur Roar, though!

    My 2 1/2 yr old son LOVES this book!

    My son really loves this book. He's just getting into dinosaurs and this book is all about dinosaurs without being too scary. It's perfect for a 2 year old! It has great rhymes and bright and colorful drawings.

    dinosaur excellent!

    I purchased this book for my 3-yr-old daughter. The short simple sentences make memorization easy; she has even been able to recognize the words when taken out of context. Nothing like Dr. Suess! This one actually makes sense. A Must-Have for every child's library. Ft. Walton Beach, FL

    My son's favorite book

    Out of all the books floating around in my home, this book is the biggest hit. We have fun acting like the dinosaurs, grumpy, slimey, fast, etc...) He loves to read the book by himself and with EVERYONE who comes over. I hope every family enjoys this book as much as we have.
