Genre: FantasyAge: PrimaryMedia: AcrylicsReview: Dinosaurs do not exist today. They cannot act out like they do in the book or have human parents for that matter. Children love dinosaurs and will believe that they should act like a dinosaur because they have great imaginations.

This story is about a dinosaurs, who are sick and had to go to the doctor and take medicine. This story I will have to say can relate to others.I really did enjoyed looking at the pictures of the different dinosaurs in the story.

How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon is a cute story about asking if dinosaurs get sick, go to the doctor and take their medicine. Yes they do because they want to get well!I can relate to this book because my son and I are always sick with colds. We go to the dr A LOT! In the classroom, I could do a history lesson on the dinosaurs and ask each student to do a paper on which dinosaur they like best and why. I can also go on a field trip to see a museum about dinosaurs if the school permitted

This is a good example of poetry because every word is carefully chosen and there is a specific purpose for writing this way. The reader learns a lesson from the story.Stars: Point of viewAge: Primary

this to is a gift for my grandson, but i did read the book and liked the way the author told children how to get well when they are sick by maintaining sanitary methods and going to the doctor and listening to their parents.

Believe it or not, but I actually stumbled upon this book at the library. I had never heard of the How Do Dinosaurs... series until I found the Get Well Soon book just minding its own business on a quiet shelf. It sounded intriguing, so I checked it out and read it to my kids. Well, I thought that I had just made the greatest discovery in children's books! This was brilliant! I thought, there should be more of these dinosaur books. They are funny, insightful, and teach good behavior all in rhyming prose. The illustrations were detailed and humorous. This should be a series! Turns out, it is. There are oodles of these How Do Dinosaurs...? books out there, and the brand is getting better known every day. Jane Yolen and Mark Teague make a fantastic pair when it comes to children's picture books. The text is fun to read. You will never miss a beat as you read Yolen's flawless rhyming and rhythm. It also gives you the opportunity to sneak in behavioral lessons to your child, all in the name of entertainment. The best part is, it comes across as reassuring, not preachy. The illustrations stick life-sized dinosaurs into kid-sized situations, making for lots of laughs from both you and your child.

This teaches children that even the so-called 'toughest' animals and creatures sometimes get sick. And when they do, they must take care of themselves and let others take care of them, as parents do. I also love the rhyming ways the book tells a child to 'Take care and prepare.'

Since the release of How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night in May 2000, Yolen and Teague¿s How Do Dinosaurs series have been entertaining and teaching children how to deal with familiar, everyday situations. Each of the books uses short, amusing rhymes paired with bright images of huge, loveable, and expressive dinosaurs that act like human children and live with human ¿parents¿ that act as if there is nothing unusual about dinosaurs living in the human world. This book is no exception. Children learn about the proper ways to ¿get well soon¿ by first being told and shown all the wrong things to do by silly, grumpy, sick dinosaurs. Eventually, they are told and shown all the right things to do. (This same format is used in all of the Dinosaur books.) The dinosaurs¿ misbehavior ¿ likely to be familiar to many children - is shown in such realistic and consequently absurd and ridiculous images that they are uproariously funny. Children may laugh out loud at images such as a dinosaur flinging his medicine out the door, another one dragging all of his feet outside of the doctor¿s office, and another refusing to ¿open wide¿ for the thermometer. The text and images of the dinosaurs doing all the right things to ¿get well soon¿ are equally irresistible. Highly recommended for ages 2 to 5.
