Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Eat your heart out, Mr. Clean! A house full of dinosaurs are cleaning up in this original board book from Jane Yolen and Mark Teague, creators of How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? and How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon? Featuring Teague's hilarious illustrations of different reptilians shoving teddy bears under the bed, sneaking pj's behind bathroom doors, and tossing dirty clothes in the hamper, this dynamic board book teaches kids that even dinosaurs have to think about keeping their bedrooms clean. For a super silly read that'll deliver great before-bed giggles or gearing-up-for-cleaning times, this is a winner that packed with a rollicking roar!
Publishers Weekly
Favorite characters and titles are now available in board book editions. Dinos delight in acting like toddlers in original board books starring the prehistoric heroes first introduced in How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? by Jane Yolen, illus. by Mark Teague. Just right for smallest hands, How DoDinosaurs Count to Ten? encourages youngsters to practice their numbers from a tyrannosaurus rex clutching his "one tattered teddy bear" to an apatosaurus reading 10 books (Teague subtly labels each terrible lizard somewhere in the drawing). The scaly stars set a good example (sort of) in How Do Dinosaurs Clean Their Rooms? as a velociraptor slides pink pajamas behind the bathroom door, and an airborne tropeognathus drops its clothes into a hamper. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
My first inclination when I read this title was to say, "very carefully." Assuming that kids can accept the premise that dinosaurs live with a human family (Dinosaur Bob set the precedent), then this story will amuse them. First the dinosaurs try all the usual tricks when it comes to cleaning up—putting toys under the bed, stuffing them in the closet, putting dirty clothes back in the drawer with the clean ones to name a few. Then the dinosaurs contrast this misbehavior with good behavior. An euplocephalus dusts, a dilophosarus organizes his toys and a tropeognathus puts dirty clothes in a hamper. Mom and Dad are really proud and thank the little dinosaurs for doing such a great job. It is silly, but kids who love dinosaurs will have fun. In addition, they will learn the names of ten very different dinosaurs (if the reader can pronounce them all). This is a companion board book to How do Dinosaurs Count to Ten? which means young kids can learn twenty of these tongue-twisting dinosaur names. Teague has fun with the expressions, body positions and coloration of these huge and now extinct creatures. 2004, Blue Sky Press/Scholastic, Ages 1 to 3.

    My son loves it!

    My 3yr. old son loves dinosaurs and we were having a hard time to get him to clean up after he made messes in his room. I read him this book and he loved it and understood what to do right away! He's had this book for a while, but it's one of his favorites, he'll grab it and ask me to read it at least twice a week.

    Cute "How to Clean Up" Book for Dinosaur Lovers

    How does a dinosaur clean up his room? "Does he stick all his teddy bears under his bed, or shove them all into his closet instead?" Maybe my kids do, but not these tidy little dinosaurs! Told in charming rhyme, How Do Dinosaurs Clean Their Rooms first shows kids what not to do, and then shows them what they should do to clean up properly.

    As with the rest of the "How Do Dinosaurs..." series, the illustrations are terrific. The names of the dinosaurs are included on every page, for those budding scientists who wish to know what they are called. The antics of these lovable reptiles will keep children giggling and wanting to read it again, and again, and again...

    My children ages five and eight really like this book. I like it too because it's a fun way to teach kids how to clean up. It's a great addition to any child's library. I highly recommend it.

    Step 2 of 2 steps

    Firstly, I showed my son the movie 'Jurassic Park,' then secondly, I read him this book, and then I explained the contrast between bad and sloppy dinosaurs as opposed to good and cleanly dinosaurs. Now my son cleans up one mess before he begins another, and believe me, every day there is a mess, but it gets cleaned up.
