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 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

This was a cute book for the very young child learning to count to 10. It was entertaining. It was a little different because it used a long rhyme about the dinosaur and what he was finding around the house to count to ten. I think kids would definitely get into it. The illustrations were cute and the rhyme was fun. A great book for the very young - probably a read aloud book. By the time kids can read, they've probably outgrown this.

A concept in counting, what better way for young children to count than to add a diansour in the mix. The unrealistic approach will let children's imaginations run wild.

Jane Yolen & Mark Teague, How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight, (2004). NY: Scholastic.Children will enjoy learning how to count with this humorous picture book as the playful dinosaurs are portrayed having children's experiences - from a dinosaur hugging one tattered teddy bear, a trachodon playing and trying to chew on its four wooden blocks, to an apatosaurus with ten books to read. The dinosaurs are drawn to its proper proportions - they are roughly three times the size of their loving human parents and have accurate features, but are drawn with beady eyes, soft demeanor, and playing like small children so they are approachable and not intimidating. The story takes place in a comfortable household setting and the illustrations are limited to only the dinosaur and whatever they are playing with. The book is durable and handy for small children, perfect for ages 5-8.

The Dino's mother is trying to teach him to count, as he plays with different things he learns to count. I have never met a kid that did not like a dinosaur book especially done by this author. I too think that are appealing and the illustrations help with the concept books

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.

I love that the book is fun to read... not JUST a counting book.

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.
