Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
It is Danny's birthday and he is on his way to the museum to invite his friend the dinosaur to his birthday party. When the dinosaur accepts the invitation, Danny rides the dinosaur back to his house. Danny's parents are decorating the house with balloons and streamers and the dinosaur is able to help because the children can ride on his long neck to hang balloons from the ceiling. When Danny's mother hands out birthday hats, the dinosaur proudly puts his own. When Danny's parents pass out ice cream to all the guests, they have to give a whole bucket of ice cream to the dinosaur. And when the cake comes out with candles burning, Danny has to remind the dinosaur that they must first make a wish before they can blow out the candles. Danny and the dinosaur make the same wish that they can be together next year for Danny's birthday. This "I Can Read" title, with accompanying CD, is a delightful story for the preschool and kindergarten crowd. As these young readers are just beginning to read for themselves, the CD reading along with them and the use of simple sentences of less than twenty words defers discouragement. Audio signals are given to let readers know when to turn the page and there is an additional track providing uninterrupted reading. Reviewer: Joyce Rice
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2Hoff continues the story from where he left it 37 years ago. Danny returns to the museum to invite his dinosaur friend to his sixth birthday party. As in the original book, the dinosaur does things with his own unique twist, providing the humor beginning readers will enjoy. Though the illustrations are now fully colored, the characters and their expressions leave no doubt that these are the same friends from the pastwith a bright future and deserving a spot on beginning-reader shelves.Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
Stephanie Zvirin
Children who know this duo from picture-book appearances will have fun reading this new adventure themselves. Danny invites his friend the dinosaur to his birthday party, an act that inspires some comedy but in the end turns out just fine. Extra leading makes the large type stand out even more than usual; the story is simple and sweet; and the use of dialogue will give new readers practice in coping with quotation marks. The cartoonlike simplicity of Hoff's artwork should have great appeal.

    Perfect for 6 yr old B-day

    In my son's class, instead of bringing sweets to celebrate a birthday, we are asked to bring books to dedicate to the class room. We chose this on because Danny was turning six along with my son. I read it to the class, brought a plastic dinasour for each child and then taped my son's picture in the front cover and dedicated it to his class w/date. Perfect!! The kids LOVED the story!!
