Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-The dinosaurs are getting ready for bed, making all the necessary preparations: "They bathed, and brushed, and fluffed their ferns/around the dino site-/then laid their horns and spikes to rest/and kissed their eggs goodnight." Once cuddled under their various quilts and blankets, they all begin to snore. There are "bronto-booms, tricera-cries, raptor-rumbles, stego-sighs," etc. The noise becomes so raucous that it causes tumultuous seas and volcanic eruptions, and eventually the continent splits in two and drifts apart. The verse flows smoothly and contains some clever wordplay, but it is Goembel's art that steals the show. All of the necessary plates, spikes, and horns are there, but these brightly colored dinos are downright endearing as they curl up on pillows festooned with teddy bears or ducks, a claw or two thrown protectively over a sleeping baby. The detailed acrylic paintings are rich in texture but have clean, crisp lines that are pleasing to the eye. Pair this with Jane Yolen's How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? (Scholastic, 2000) for a dino-mite storytime.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
How did the dinosaurs get ready for bed? "They bathed and brushed and fluffed their ferns / around the dino site . . . / then laid their horns and spikes to rest / and kissed their eggs good night." Plainly modeled on the toy dinosaurs that are part of so many young readers' kit bags, huge, toothy figures in jellybean colors settle down, many clutching plushies, all about a prehistoric landscape. And were dinosaurs quiet sleepers? Not so-in fact, the cumulative effect of all those thunderous "Proto-grunts, / Diplo-hoots, / Allo-snorts / and Tyranno-toots" drove amphibians out of the water, ignited volcanoes and ultimately caused the Earth itself to crack open, sending the modern continents adrift. Along with proposing a novel theory of plate tectonics, this poke at the past will produce from children the same sort of Tyranno-toots as Jane Yolen's How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? (2000). (Picture book. 6-8)
