Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Part of the Hello Genius line, this story stars a green dinosaur in a graphic T-shirt and glasses whose “teeth are big and sharp” and good for one thing—biting. “Don’t bite your toys! Don’t bite your chair!” shouts Dahl’s text, as Record’s crisply rendered Little Dino does just that. The overall goal is more about humor and entertainment than behavioral encouragement, though human mothers will still appreciate the multiple reminders that say “Don’t bite your mom!” Simultaneously available: Little Dinos Don’t Hit, Little Dinos Don’t Push, and Little Dinos Don’t Yell. Ages 2–4. (Feb.)
Children's Literature - Jennifer Greene
Babies and toddlers bite everything, from toys to crackers. Baby dinosaurs are no exception, and their teeth are even bigger and sharper than yours! This book, from the "Little Dinos" series, explores the appropriateness of biting various things with cute pictures and a lot of humor. The mother dinosaur scolds the little dino, wearing glasses and a silly, caught-mid-act expression, not to bite his shoes or a chair, but to bite a snack instead. At the end, she reminds the dino not to bite his mom, "even if she is really sweet." While the joke is cliched and aimed at parents instead of the child, it still offers closure with its heart-warming ending and accompanying illustration of the mom and baby hugging. The humor continues, even on the back cover, with the words "don't bite this book!" Both the text and illustration are large and page-filling, making this board book a good choice as an introduction to reading. Even though the illustrations are large and blocky, they manage to capture and create emotive, adorable characters. Likewise, even though the words "don't bite," are always capitalized, a large silly font and the colorful pictures always accompany the command-heavy diction, making the statements more fun than didactic. A fun book to gnaw, with contents to match, recommended for children ages one to three. Reviewer: Jennifer Greene
