Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Cats and dinosaurs did not coexist and if they had, the felines would have been dinosaur Fancy Feast. Ignoring that likelihood, these dinosaurs exhibit human characteristics in caring for their pet cats. The official name for each dinosaur is printed on the drawing which provides a nice lesson in itself. Negative actions are countered with positive ones to impart lessons about taking care of a pet. Good dinosaurs cuddle their cats, feed them, provide fresh water and remember to clean out the litter box. A really good dinosaur also provides new toys and special treats and loves to hear her kitty purr. The Yolen and Teague duo have produced about a dozen books in the "How do Dinosaurs...." series and this board book version is bound to be a hit with the toddler set. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Publishers Weekly
In this board book spinoff of their long-running series, Yolen and Teague’s lovable dinosaurs bully and ignore their pets: “How does a dinosaur play with her cat?/ Does she throw pillows at it and act like a brat?” After other instances of bad behavior are pictured in humorous detail, the latter half of the book is dedicated to proper pet care. Kids who need a reminder about being gentle should get the message without feeling called out. Also available: How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Dogs? Ages 3–5. (Jan.)
