Product description

What if a dinosaur catches the flu? Does he whimper and whine between each "At-choo"? Does he drop dirty tissues all over the floor? Does he fling his medicine out of the door? Just like kids, little dinosaurs hate being sick. And going to the doctor can be pretty scary. How DO dinosaurs get well soon? They drink lots of juice, and they get lots of rest; they're good at the doctor's, 'cause doctors know best. As in their first dinosaur book, Yolen and Teague capture children's fears about being sick and put them to rest with playful read-aloud verse and hilarious pictures.

This beautifully illustrated, rhyming story is a must have for every child. Perfect for younger kids too, as it's nice and short! Both my 1 and 2 year old will sit still for the entirety of this story.

Review quote

Booklist--April 2000 *Yolen, Jane. Illus. by Teague, Mark. How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? Apr. 2000. 40p. Scholastic/Blue Sky, $15.95 (0-590-31681-8). Age 4-6. The text is sweet and simple-just right for the wonderful pictures that really make this picture book spe- cial. Teague's art takes dinosaurs out of their usual con- text and plops them into bed (a rather comical fit) for a sleepy-time tale with a difference. Endpapers introduce the critter cast in all their gorgeous glory: tyrannosaurus rex, dimetrodon, and more, in vivid, yet still earthbound colors. Prima donna dinos, they yawn and fuss and throw toys about, procrastinating Oust like real kids) any way they can as human Moms and Dads, ready to put "baby" to bed, look on in various stages of impatience, anger, and surprise. The whimsical expressions on the "children's" faces give solid clues to the joke. By cleverly varying his perspectives, Teague adds dramatic punch to the pic- tures-readers watch from above as one behemoth baby whips its neck from side to side; they watch from below when another stamps its huge feet; and they're face to face with one snoozing T-rex hugging its teddy bear close. Alert lookers will notice the dino's name incorporated somewhere into each picture-pteranodon is neatly spelled out in blocks on the floor. A delight from start to finish; better buy more than one. -Stephanie Zvirin
