Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
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)

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
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.

    Love the "How Do Dinosaurs..." Series

    My two year old son loves all of these books. I first bought him the four board books in this series, but we are graduating to the paper picture books now. He loves the stories - they rhyme in a really cute, easy to remember way, and teach great lessons about being kind, cleaning up, counting, coloring, etc. The illustrations are very cute, not at all scary, and they each have the dinosaurs' real scientific names printed in fine print at the edge of the drawings on each page. These are great books for toddlers and preschoolers. I even read them to my infant daughter because she loves the sing-song stories and colorful pictures.

    My son made me read this so many times I can recite it without looking at the book

    my sons both LOVE this book. They especially love the illustrations which really bring the story to life. Story has a very nice rythym and flow and my 1.5 yr old makes me read it at least 7-8 times a day. Highly recommend for kids between 2 and 6

    The last question in this book is "Now that he's counted fr

    The last question in this book is "Now that he's counted from one to ten, how does a dinosaur count again?" And the answer, which my son gave when he handed me this book, is "again". Next to "no", "again" and "more" are probably his favorite words. Because this book was written years before he was born, I'm guessing he is not alone in toddler world in favoring that word. And to have it at the end of a counting story, well, that's just perfection for him.
    I love, love, love Mark Teague's illustrations (again!). My only complaint would be that he is so brilliant and I am so jealous -- but I can get over that and buy his brilliantly illustrated books.

    Brings back memories from a few years ago

    I remember my child counting, '1,2,3,4,6,7,5,9,8,10,' and then counting correctly with help from her mom, myself and from this book and some others.
