Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
This counting book features funny, benign-looking dinosaurs so colorfully rendered they're sure to be a hit. Ten dinosaurs dance and cavort so mischievously that the group finally dwindles to one. Bold print and the use of rhyme add to the charm.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1In this countdown concept book, whimsically drawn dinosaurs engage in childlike activities as they push and shove one another, dance, throw tomatoes, stomp on the floor, swing from a tree, and so on. One creature is eliminated for an amusing reason during each activity until only one is left, exhausted and napping. The book ends as his friends sneak up on him and all yell, "ROAR!" The double-page spreads of brightly colored, cartoonlike, generic dinosaurs with mischievous expressions are placed on white paper with little or no backgrounds. The generous white space emphasizes the action of the cavorting reptiles and sets off the large, clear typeface. The rhyming text is lively to read aloud, and young children will enjoy the boisterous characters.Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
10 terrible dinosaurs standing in a line soon began to push and shove until there were 9. In Ten Terrible Dinosaurs, Paul Strickland has authored and illustrated a delightful one through ten counting and subtraction book for preschoolers and kindergartners featuring a wild bunch of stomping, romping, pushing, shoving, dancing, roaring dinosaurs. One by one they leave until only a single sleep dinosaur is left. Highly recommended.

My son and I liked Ten Terrible Dinosaurs so much when we borrowed it from the library that now I am buying it. The story is just as the professional reviews tell above. The subject, dinosaurs, is something that preschool kids like. The book keeps them interested with the bright colors. And, they are learning about numbers at the same time.
