Editorial Reviews

Last seen in How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?, these lovable lugs from the Jurassic period return in board-book format to help kids learn to count. Even pre-counters will enjoy the silly depictions: In one scene, a grinning T-rex hugs his "one tattered teddy bear" as he looms over his human mom, who gazes up adoringly at her supersize offspring. (Ages birth to 2)

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.

Assuming that kids can accept the premise that dinosaurs live with a human family (Dinosaur Bob set the precedent), then this is a pretty straightforward board book. On each page a dinosaur has the correct number of items described in the text. No Arabic numerals appear so a little extra reinforcement for the counting lesson is lost. Also, the dinosaurs change on each page. Fortunately, for parents and caregivers, they are all labeled. 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 book to How do Dinosaurs Clean their Rooms? 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.
