Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
How about a board book featuring dinosaurs that also imparts a lesson relating to play behavior? The text provides some examples of things not to do—not sharing, not treating your friends or your toys with care, and not taking turns or playing games that others might enjoy. Good dinosaurs do not behave that way, and they make sure that you get a turn and choose games that you will both enjoy. Illustrator Teague presents a variety of dinosaurs, and young kids will delight in learning and saying those tongue twisting names. The book is also available in Spanish. Kids will be pleased to see that the dinosaur names are the same in both languages. It might be a very good choice for kids learning either language if you can get the pair.
