Jane Yolen and Mark Teague follow up their blockbuster hit How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? with this hilarious, rhymed read about ancient -- and under-the-weather -- reptiles.
When a dinosaur gets sick, taking care of it might be touch-and-go. If it comes down with the flu, will "he whimper and whine in between each Atchoo" like the book's sour Styracosaurus sitting on the nurse's table? Or maybe he'll "flip off his covers with tooth and with tail" like the nonchalant, bedridden Euoplocephalus. He could also let out a Dilophosaurus-sized dramatic wail or "drag his feet till his mom is in shock," but the truth is, with some TLC from Mom and Dad, little Velociraptors will be happily using hankies and saying gentle good nights before drifting off to sleep.
From pouting Parasaurolophuses to tricky Tropeognathuses, Yolen and Teague prove that laughter is the best medicine. Clever rhymes make this ideal for reading aloud to any recovering little dino, while drily humorous illustrations will keep parents and kids scouring pages for dinosaur names and subtle, knowing expressions. The next time your child is stuck in his or her sickbed, pull out this book and let the giggles go to work! Matt Warner
