Product Description
Featuring ten sleepy dinosaurs, this adorable picture book from prize-winning writer Jane Yolen and best-selling illustrator Mark Teague celebrates the funny, endearing, naughty bedtime behavior of young children... and young dinosaurs.Amazon.com Review
"How does a dinosaur say good night when Papa comes in to turnoff the light? Does a dinosaur slam his tail and pout? Does he throw histeddy bear all about? Does a dinosaur stomp his feet on the floor andshout: 'I want to hear one book more!'? DOES A DINOSAUR ROAR?" Mostcertainly not. Dinosaurs give their mommies and daddies big hugs andkisses, tuck their tales in, and whisper "Good night!"

Every sleepy little dinosaur will recognize the tricks of the trade inthese bedtime shenanigans. The chuckle factor is sky-high here, withgiant, full-page pictures of cleverly identified Tyrannosaurus rexes,triceratopses, and Pteranodons. A variety of human mothers and fatherstrying to put their dinosaur children to bed will bring the point homethat the story may have something to do with human kid behavioras well. This good-natured nighttime book is sure to be a winner (eventhough it might inspire a few noisy dinosaur antics), especially as it'swritten by Jane Yolen, prolific Caldecott Medalist author of Owl Moon. Yolen andMark Teague have teamed up to create a fun, silly, playful read-aloud.(Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars My son and I get a real kick out of this one!
My son loves learning about dinosaurs so it was only natural that we get this book. I believe it was the hooked on phonics suggested reading list. What a treat! We have read this book several times. We borrowed from the library but will definitely purchase. It is a keeper! I was excited to see that there are more books with the same dinosaur theme by same author.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must buy for all children and parents
We received this book as a gift and it has been a family favorite ever since then.We have also purchased many other books in the series, but still this is the best of them all.A great gift for others or for your family!

4-0 out of 5 stars Types of dinos
What I really enjoyed about this book wasn't so much the story (which is fun, though nothing indepth) but the fact that each illustration has a dinosaur labeled with its saurian name!I think this is a great way to introduce children to the various types of dinos and familiarize them with their fantastic names.

we read this book to my 2-year old son every night before bed...he loves it!

Wow, we got this book to read to our 2 year old before bedtime & he loves it.It's too short, not many words, was dissapointed in that way, but we use it as the finisher book...after we read a few other goodnight books, this is the last one we read.LOVE IT!

Product Description

This lavishly illustrated volume is the first authoritative dinosaur book in the style of a field guide. World-renowned dinosaur illustrator and researcher Gregory Paul provides comprehensive visual and textual coverage of the great Mesozoic animals that gave rise to the living dinosaurs, the birds. Incorporating the new discoveries and research that are radically transforming what we know about dinosaurs, this book is distinguished both by its scientific accuracy and the quality and quantity of its illustrations. It presents thorough descriptions of more than 735 dinosaur species and features more than 600 color and black-and-white images, including unique skeletal drawings, "life" studies, and scenic views--illustrations that depict the full range of dinosaurs, from small, feathered creatures to whale-sized supersauropods.

Heavily illustrated species accounts of the major dinosaur groups are preceded by an extensive introduction that covers dinosaur history and biology, the extinction of nonavian dinosaurs, the origin of birds, and the history of dinosaur paleontology--and that also gives a taste of what it might be like to travel back to the time of the dinosaurs.

The Princeton Field Guide to Dinosaurs is a must-have for anyone who loves dinosaurs, from the amateur enthusiast to the professional paleontologist.

The first authoritative field guide to dinosaurs Covers more than 735 species Beautiful, large-format volume Lavishly illustrated throughout, with more than 600 color and black-and-white drawings and figures, including:

More than 130 color life studies, including scenic views Close to 450 skeletal, skull, head, and muscle drawings 8 color paleo-distribution maps Color timelineDescribes anatomy, physiology, locomotion, reproduction, and growth of dinosaurs, as well as the origin of birds and the extinction of nonavian dinosaurs ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book--Would like it to be "field guide" size
Paul's "Princeton Field Guide to Dinosaurs" is a wonderful resource with a great deal of information for professionals and lay persons alike, but particularly adults who have an interest in dinosaurs.That being said, it's difficult to know which audience this book is primarily targeting (professionals or lay persons).

To my knowledge, this is the first "field guide" since David Lambert's Dinosaur Field Guide (1986) and Dinosaur Data Book (1989) that extensively covers many known genera and species.However, one advantage to Paul's book over Lambert's is that many of the species accounts are accompanied by illustrations of the known skeletal material upon which the species are identified.Additionall, the skeletal reconstructions for a number of species are shown from different angles (top down & side view primarily).Couple this with Paul's life reconstructions and you have a wonderful resource.

Paul's incorporation of some of the latest research (e.g. Anchiornis huxleyi coloration) makes this book a great and timely asset.

As a lay person who has not kept up on many of the technical papers, I think I would have benefitted from more explanations of some of Paul's taxonomy changes.For example, I was surprised to learn that Styracosaurus was no longer considered a distinct genus, but was lumped with Centrosaurus.The Theropod taxonomic revisions seemed to be well explained, but many of the plant-eaters did not include the same sorts of justification comments.

Another thing that would have perhaps made this book more valuable/interesting to a lay person is to have reduced its size a bit to make it more like a field guide for extant species.Something along the size of a Sibley Guide to Birds would have worked.As lay person I would have liked to have been able to carry this into a museum with me and check off the species I've seen on display.As it is now, it's really more of a desk reference than a "field guide".

One last thing that would have made this book more valuable to a lay person is to have included maps with each species (much like a bird field guide)showing where skeletal material has been found on a current map, or where the species were presumed to be located on a map from the time period during which they lived.Paul does include this as text, but I found myself having to refer back to the maps towards the beginning of the book to get an idea of where various species were found.

Overall, this is a great, and affordable, resource that should be included on the bookshelf of every teen to adult dinosaur enthusiast.It makes me hope that Paul decides to update his predatory dinosaur book with the specimens, including many of the ancient birds from China, that have been discovered over the last 20 some odd years since the release of that text.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dinosaurs
This is a top quality book on dinosaurs at a price that most can afford. It is packed with excellent graphics and is filled with skeletal reconstructions of the professional quality that Gregory S. Paul is famous for using. There is knew information as well as some of the knewer dinosaurs and synonymies of formerly known kinds. Clearly, this is a must have for any dinosaur enthusiast.

5-0 out of 5 stars Long-awaited, lavish, complete - Paul's lifetime accomplishment
Gregory S. Paul's 1988 book, _Predatory Dinosaurs of the World_Predatory Dinosaurs of the World: A Complete Illustrated Guide, reignited my childhood interest in dinosaurs when I was a teenager. I read it cover to cover several times and carried it around for months and months, lingering over his exacting white-skeletons-on-black-soft-tissue reconstructions with my eyes, ruminating over the accompanying text, and wistfully wishing that the book didn't stop with the last theropod but went on to cover sauropods and everything else in the same level of detail.

Now, some 22 years later, Paul releases what is probably his magnum opus: a big, bold 8 & 1/2 by 11 volume containing hundreds of reconstructions dozens of muscle studies and shaded skull drawings, and numerous fine color scenes. A feast for the eyes and an atlas for the imagination.

Paul writes in the preface: "Producing this book has been particular satisfying in that it has given me the reason to achieve a long-term goal, to illustrate the skeletons of almost all dinosaur species for which there is sufficiently complete available."

Thank you, Mr. Paul, from the bottom of our hearts! And thank you Princeton University Press for producing a durable big-format volume, the sort of thing that older boys can carry around on planes, trains, and automobiles . . .

4-0 out of 5 stars A great choice for toddler one-on-one or group read-aloud
This is one of those rhythmic, rhyming, funny books with emphasis on adjectives, this time describing the characteristics of brightly-colored, extremely funny dinosaurs.Unlike Byron Barton's Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs, this one emphasizes humor rather than scientific accuracy, it's unclear which historical beasts these animals represent.Their descriptions are simpler, presented in predictable, rhythmic text: "dinosaur sweet, dinosaur grumpy, dinosaur spiky, and dinosaur lumpy."On the final page the carnivores are depicted gnawing on bones, and the herbivores devouring trees, while a smiling tyrannasaur munches on the letters.

This is a fast read, with all the characteristics that make it perfect for toddlers who require humor, rhythm, predictability, and a short attention span.It's perfect for one-on-one reading or for a group.Available in paperback or board book format.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best children's book ever!
This book was given to me when I was pregnant with my first child 10 years ago and I somehow lost it along the way.Just bought it again for my 3rd son (turning 2 in Sept 2010) and he loves it just as much as my first 2 sons.It is one of the best children's books ever.I enjoy reading it as much as my kids enjoy hearing it.

1-0 out of 5 stars sharp teeth!
Firstly, the book is waterproof, which is strange to me.I don't remember the description indicating this.Secondly, the dinosaurs seem quite vicious for the intended age group.I didn't let my son read it, since he is only 2.We're going to stick to other "friendlier" dinosaur books for now.

My kids have all loved this book.We have 5.When our little ones choose books to read this book is always among the ones they choose.Our copy has been taped multiple times but is falling apart again.It will not last long enough for our 1 year old to fully enjoy it.I guess it is time to get a new copy.

Product Description
A first book of dinosaurs for young children.

The Big Book of Dinosaurs is an enticing collection of dinosaurs that is sure to excite any child. It is packed with full-color photographs of life-like models plus detailed illustrations. The simple text describes interesting features, while questions encourage children to compare various dinosaurs.Amazon.com Review
Everything about The Big Book of Dinosaurs is off the charts--thesize of the book itself, the elaborate two-page spreads, the color models,and even the oversized type. Children can experience the amazing powers ofthese prehistoric beasts--the jagged teeth of the ferocious meat eaters,the slashing claws of the Deinonychus, and the long-necked Barosaurus thatcould reach five-story-high treetops and may have had eight hearts.Yet, like the dinosaurs themselves, there is nothing threatening orintimidating about this highly informative book. The text is brief andsuccinct, only conveying facts that children find interesting. (There'seven an index for quick searches of favorite dinos.) The lifelike illustrations give young readers a solidsense of what dinosaur fossils and skeletal systems look like as well asclear mental pictures of how these creatures appeared in "real-life"millions of years ago.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good, But Not a "First Book," Doesn't Show Dinos in Environments, And Has Out-Of-Date Statements
I'll agree with all the positive points made in the two "Most Helpful" 2004 reviews here, such as:
- "[It] is organized into categories such as meat-eaters, boneheads (pachycephalosaurus and his ilk) and gargantuans such as brontosaurus."
- "The double-page spreads with gorgeously illustrated dinosaurs are sure to hold a child's attention, and the text is succin[c]t and easy for them to understand."
- "The pages include lots of facts about dinosaurs and show pictures of both very live looking dino's as well as their skeletons."
- "There's a very good index at the end of the book with proper pronunciations of all the dinosaur names...."

But to these points let me add the following cautions:
- Despite this book's subtitle, the reading level of the text, the realism of the photos of dinosaur models, and the normal paper make it unsuitable as a "First [Nonfiction] Book for Young Children."Instead, for your 2-3 year old consider a book with minimal text and cartoon-style illustrations that is printed on card stock such as The Usborne Big Book of Big Dinosaurs.
- For the most part, the dinosaurs are not shown doing activities such as eating, walking, and fighting.I wish more of the 32 pages were devoted to theoretical reconstructions of how they actually lived in their environments, perhaps by cutting back a little on the number of different dinosaurs pictured (which is more than 50).
- Since the book was published in 1994, some of the information is out of date.For example, the "Biggest on Earth" spread does not include Argentinosaurus which was discovered in the early 1990s and as of 2010 is the heaviest land animal discovered for which a decent amount of evidence is available. The book says that "Tyrannosaurus was the biggest... meat-eating animal ever," but these days the largest specimen of T. rex is considered smaller than the largest specimens of carnivores Giganotosaurus, Mapusaurus, and Spinosaurus.

Nevertheless, buy this book from Amazon.com!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book! My 6 year old loves it!
This is a very colorful and educational book. My six year old son loves it. He reads it to me all the time! I would recommend it to all the little dinosaur lovers in your life.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good book on dinosaurs
This book is well written, well organized and full of nice pictures and interesting details on dinosaurs.

The thing to make sure you are aware of it that it deals strictly with "dinosaurs". Pteradons (the flying reptiles like pteradactyls, etc.) and the "swimming dinosaurs" - icthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, and pliosaurs (who are actually swimming reptiles)are not represented in the book.

It is a well done book, but if you have a child like mine who is into the flying and swimming reptiles from that era, you will need a different book, since it is out of the scope of this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great gift that's not a toy.
I have found that many of the DK Publishing books for children make excellent gifts, and this book is no exception.Not everything under the Christmas tree is toys at our house!Good for kids as young as four but better for those between 5-8yrs old.My son has enjoyed the Star Wars books as he has gotten older as well.These are the type of books that I find my kids looking and relaxing with when in bed right before bedtime.Great pics, some paragraphs but also a lot of short "mini-paragraphs" scattered around the pictures.

3-0 out of 5 stars great book but....
a great book but a little too advanced for what my 3 year old granddaughter was looking for. we were hoping each page would have a dinosaur/name/little info about.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected...
This book is not what I expected and I immediately got rid of it. In my opinion, it's only appropriate for those in an "ugly" divorce.There are pictures my four year old said were scary and "I don't want to see this anymore, Mom."There are pictures of Daddy/Mommy dinosaurs teeth showing fighting, one of mom with spilled pill bottles & drinking a martini, etc.It addresses parents speaking negatively of each other, hurting themselves or each other, putting the child in the middle, dating and re-marrying and things of that nature.While this may fit certain situations, I was looking for a book to simply explain that mom and dad were married and divorce, you have two homes, etc.My ex and I happen to get along very well, share custody with no issues, and my son was too young to remember us living together or married.It simply didn't fit my circumstances.In my opinion, if you have an even remotely amicable divorce situation, this is not the appropriate book.I also wouldn't recommend it for kids under the age of six, personally.

1-0 out of 5 stars inappropriate for kids
I thought this book was terrible for children.The picture of the mother with empty booze bottles & pill bottles was offensive.The mention of parents arguements can be "violent" was disturbing, and the image of dad's girlfriend with the big blonde hair & eyeshadow was a bit over the top playing into stereotypes.These were just a few of the problems I found with the book.I thought that perhaps I was being sensitive so I shared the book with my son's daycare director and an elementary level special education teacher.Both agreed that the book was offensive and inappropriate and would not use it for children.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wish I knew it years ago
This was recommended to me by a family therapist. I bought it for my daughter to help her with her kids but I read it first. I wish I'd had it myself when I was divorcing her father. It would have helped me explain much better thandid

5-0 out of 5 stars This author hits the nail on the Head!
This book addresses a difficult and scary subject in an approachable manner for young kids.A gentle and straightforward treatment of FAQs.I recommend this to anyone who wants to broach the subject with children up to pre-teen (especially if they are familiar with the Arthur TV series). It is a great way to start a conversation on a subject that worries kids.

5-0 out of 5 stars Divorce for Kids
I thought the book really broke down the whole divorce process to a child at their level of understanding. It helped me tremendously when talking to my son about what was going on with his mom and me. He really liked the ideas presented in the stories and it helped him look at the divorce in a new light. It helped him understand that this was not his fault, as well as, understanding that how the family will be reconfigured in a sense. It an easy and enjoyable read for young children and can really help parents sit down and explain the divorce process to the kids. I would highly recommend this book for parents going through a divorce with young children. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Cute "How to Clean Up" Book for Dinosaur Lovers
How does a dinosaur clean up his room?"Does he stick all his teddy bears under his bed, or shove them all into his closet instead?"Maybe my kids do, but not these tidy little dinosaurs!Told in charming rhyme, How Do Dinosaurs Clean Their Rooms first shows kids what not to do, and then shows them what they should do to clean up properly.

As with the rest of the "How Do Dinosaurs..." series, the illustrations are terrific.The names of the dinosaurs are included on every page, for those budding scientists who wish to know what they are called.The antics of these lovable reptiles will keep children giggling and wanting to read it again, and again, and again...

My children ages five and eight really like this book.I like it too because it's a fun way to teach kids how to clean up.It's a great addition to any child's library.I highly recommend it.

Product Description
Q: What is this book about?

A: Well, that’s difficult to say. I haven’t read it yet—I’ve just picked it up and casually glanced at the back cover. There clearly isn’t a plot. I’ve heard there’s a lot of stuff about time travel in this book, and quite a bit about violence and Garth Brooks and why Germans don’t laugh when they’re inside grocery stores. Ralph Nader and Ralph Sampson play significant roles. I think there are several pages about Rear Window and college football and Mad Men and why Rivers Cuomo prefers having sex with Asian women. Supposedly there’s a chapter outlining all the things the Unabomber was right about, but perhaps I’m misinformed.

Q: Is there a larger theme?

A: Oh, something about reality. "What is reality," maybe? No, that’s not it. Not exactly. I get the sense that most of the core questions dwell on the way media perception constructs a fake reality that ends up becoming more meaningful than whatever actually happened. Also, Lady Gaga.

Q: Should I read this book?

A: Probably. Do you see a clear relationship between the Branch Davidian disaster and the recording of Nirvana’s In Utero? Does Barack Obama make you want to drink Pepsi? Does ABBA remind you of AC/DC? If so, you probably don’t need to read this book. You probably wrote this book. But I suspect everybody else will totally love it, except for the ones who totally hate it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Written
I read this book in two days, and thoroughly enjoyed its mellifluous writing although I cannot recall what the book said, mainly because I thought what the author was writing was gibberish anyway -- and he knew it.

This is what I learned from the book:
1.)the author is the quintessential white liberal arts graduate, somehow who grew up in a progressive loving household with parents who aspired to creativity and then went on to a small liberal arts college where every Friday night he listened to a lot of obscure music, smoked a lot of pot, got laid, and drank organic coffee (in that order).
2.)someone dared him to use the word "simulacrum" just once in the book.
3.)his main objective in writing the book was to try to use as many obscure allusions as possible without completing frustrating the reader.
4.)he's not Canadian, but he doesn't mind if people think he's Canadian as long as he doesn't have to live in Canada.

Which is to say that the man is smart and articulate and ironic, but in a humble and pleasant and friendly way.He's the type of guy who you'd be proud to present to your girlfriend as your best friend, and you could sit hours with him talking nonsense over organic pilsner.

His persona is this book's main selling point, and with his wry and ironic sense of humor (but not wry and ironic enough to have people think he's a jerk) he's even made indie music readable to someone like me who has absolutely no interest in music at all.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful, entertaining, well-written
This is the best Klosterman book to date. This collection of essays has three qualities not usually found together--they are immensely thought-provoking and meaningful, they are thoroughly entertaining, and they are very well written. This time Klosterman goes beyond just pop culture critic. He delves into some of the amazing, subtle, sublime, awful, and odd things about culture in general. The last essay alone ("FAIL") is worth getting the collection, but each essay is strong and worth reading alone. What is most remarkable about Klosterman's ideas is that they are logical and yet they seem at first glance to be insane and nonsensical. This is in my top 100 books of all time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Irreverent Intelligence at its Finest
I fell in love with Chuck Klosterman's seemingly infinite knowledge on all matters trivial and important when I read "Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs." I did read "Chuck Klosterman IV" and was underwhelmed, but that misstep was MORE than made up for with "Eating the Dinosaur."

Bought on a whim at an LAX bookstore in preparation for an exhausting flight back to Atlanta, I wasn't aware just how amazing it would be. Klosterman's skill at comparing two UTTERLY random things in such a way that we wonder why we didn't notice it ourselves is unparalleled. Even though I may be reading about some obscure sports event I wasn't old enough to remember, or some band my parents probably didn't even listen to, the way Klosterman (often hilariously) gives them cultural significance in the most unpredictable contexts is worth the read.

Don't take the book too seriously; the best part about Klosterman is the unassuming way with which he presents his material.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chucks best book yet
If your a Chuck Klosterman fan then you know exactly what this book is about, if you read Sex Drugs and Cocoa Puffs then you already know whats in store for you. But for the people who have not read a Chuck Klosterman book then please do. Klosterman goes over just about anything you can think of from sports to time travel (which was an amazing chapter) and on from there. He shares his personal experiences and his intellect. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for someone to turn to as a friend in times like these. I also highly recommend his other books. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite of the dinosaur series
My 3 year old is dinosaur obsessed and we have just about every book from this series. This one is different than the others, but I think that the message is even more important.In the other big books the dinosaurs all act perfectly.That is nice and very funny, but not realistic.In this book the dinosaurs are loved by their parents no matter what.What an incredible lmessage for your children!Especially for the preschool set, it is important for children to hear repeatedly that they are loved, no matter what. My son doesn't read it as a message that he can be naughty, but that he is loved unconditionally and that anyone can have a bad day.I often cry a little when reading it and my son can't get enough of it.What better way to go to sleep than with the message that you are safe and unconditionally adored.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as other How Do Dinosaurs...
I am a fan of the How Do Dinosaurs books, but this one isn't as cute.It doesn't follow the same rhythm as the other books.I do own it because I bought it on reputation without seeing it, but don't think I would have bought it if I saw it first.

3-0 out of 5 stars Issues with the Story
While this book's final message is a good one (dinosaurs give their mothers a kiss and go to bed without any trouble), the majority of the book shows dinosaurs having a temper tantrums and asks whether dinosaurs act like this when they're getting ready for bed.While the answer is that dinosaurs apparently do not have tantrums at bedtime, I'd rather not even discuss with my toddler the possibility of tantrums before bed. ...

Product Description

How does a dinosaur eat all his food?Does he burp, does he belch, or make noises quite rude?Does he pick at his cereal, throw down his cup,hoping to make someone else pick it up? Just like kids, dinosaurs have a difficult time learning to behave at the table. However, with a little help from Mom and Dad, these young dinosaurs eat all before them with smiles and goodwill.As in their previous books, Yolen and Teague capture children's rambunctious natures with playful read-aloud verse and wonderfully amusing pictures.

5-0 out of 5 stars So Cute
We have 3 or 4 of the How Do Dinosaurs books and my son loves them! He's only three and we've been reading them since he was about 9 months old. Back then he loved looking at the pictures of the dinosaurs. Now he can quote all the stories, we read them almost nightly. They are adorable books and I recommend them to anyone who has small children. My son loves them so much that we ended up tracing some of the pictures and putting them on his walls! He calls this book How Do Dinosaurs Eat Lunch . . .

5-0 out of 5 stars Review from Books That Heal Kids
I am an elementary school counselor and enjoy reading this story to encourage positive social skills.

Yes! Another fun one encouraging good social skills. Dinosaurs teaching behavior management!!?? Right on! Have your dinosaur puppets on stand-by for this one. It asks negative questions about behavior like, "Does a dinosaur YELL?" The next page won't give the answer or demonstrate the correct behavior. So I break this one up by taking the time to model each correct behavior after each question. Sometimes this can be a two part lesson. Sitting at the carpet learning school rules for 30 minutes can be BORING so make it fun and light.

5-0 out of 5 stars My daughters favorite book.
We have almost all of the "how do dinosaurs..." books and I have to say I love them all. This one in particular is my 4 year old daughters favorite. Probably because she goes to school now.I love the pretty pics and the rhyming is very easy to read even when I"m tired.Highly recommend to children both boy and girl. We started reading the series when my daughter was just 2 1/2 and its still a nightly favorite!

1-0 out of 5 stars Can this be?
Can this book REALLY cost over $174.00????A typo???I am amazed!I would love to purchase this book, but not at this price.Believe it or not, it is even cheaper than this at Barnes and Noble!!

4-0 out of 5 stars It is a good book geared towards grade 3 and younger
Overall, this book was very fun to read.If you have not already learned about dinosaurs, this book is useful.It had a lot of dinosaur facts, but the facts were very short.I would have preferred it if they had given more detail.It is an easy chapter book, probably best for grade 3 and younger.

5-0 out of 5 stars Can Jack and Annie get away from the Tyrannosaurus Rex?
Synopsis: In Frog Creek, Pennsylvania, Jack and his younger sister Annie are walking home. Annie pretends there are monsters chasing them and runs to the woods. Jack follows her, and sees that Annie has discovered a tree house in the middle of the woods. Annie climbs up and tells him there are books inside, so Jack also climbs up to examine the tree-house.

In the tree-house, Jack looks at a book on dinosaurs while Annie looks at a book about castles. Jack wishes he could see a Pteranodon for real, and is shocked to suddenly find the tree-house spinning. After the tree-house stops spinning, the kids are shocked to look out and find themselves gone back in time. Annie tries to befriend a real Pteranodon, Triceratops and Anatosaurus, even though Jack tries to prevent her from doing so. But when they see a Tyrannosaurus Rex lurking around, they realize they have to escape from the dinosaur and go back to their own time! However, this becomes even harder than they think, when Jack realizes that he has left his backpack on the hill where the Tyrannosaurus Rex is next to, and he cannot go back without it. Will they be able to escape the T-Rex and go back to their own time?

Review: I thought this book was a great start to the Magic Tree House series. Its provides a lot of interesting information about dinosaurs in general, such as the facts that Jack reads from the book, as well as the notes he takes down when he studies them. In addition to this, the story is also interesting and fast paced, where the reader is put on the edge of his seat as we try to find out how Jack is going to get past the T-Rex and other dinosaurs towards the end of the book.

The illustrations are also nicely drawn by Sal Murdocca, and it gives the reader a visual aspect of how dinosaurs looked when Jack and Annie come face to face with them. I especially liked the one where Jack is hiding from the T-Rex, or when Annie sees the nest of dinosaur eggs.

Overall, I thought this was a very nicely written book by Mary Pope Osborne, and would definitely recommend it to any younger reader who would like to read something adventurous and informative at the same time.

5-0 out of 5 stars fun history
I'm 8 i read this book two times. Irealy liked it! THere isn't one thing I didn't like about it. I would recomend this book to people who like history and dinosaurs . I have been tothe feild museum in Chicogo and they have a dinosaur scelonton.

5-0 out of 5 stars Launch a budding reader with these
I did NOT teach my kid to read and was surprised when he read GREEN EGGS and HAM to me one morning at aged three.He had worked on it during nap time at preschool- so he is a capable reader.In kindergarten, though he was bringing home a self selected assortment of books from the class library that couldn't have been more boring.They were books that read such as, "This is my Mom.My mom is tall. I am small....." Very simple, but I kept my comments to myself. I'm sure he was learning strategies and letter combinations and all and he claimed to like those books.His teacher was very engaging, so I didn't deter him and let him learn what he was being taught.BUT- when the occasion came that we had to take aLONG train trip, I stopped at the local thrift store and found this series of books.I bought a stack and packed a few for the trip.I did NOT bring the DVD players that family and friends offered. My son, just turned 6, has now read half of them in less than two months.He devoures them and retells the stories to me the next day, so I know he is really taking them in.He is no longer frustrated when he doesn't know a word, because he'd rather keep reading and figures it out as he goes- or asks for clarification over breakfast the next day.Also amazing is how much he is learning about the world- I'm at risk of complaining that he's become a know-it-all, but I suspect that comes with his age. They are great books to launch a self reader and we highly recommend them.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Amazing
Dinosaurs before dark
This book is about two kids that go on an adventure to the past and they go to meet dinosaurs from the past in a magic tree house. And they find a tree house and when ever they click on a page in the book they go there .
And the dinosaurs try to get them but there is a dinosaur that named Henry. Saves them and they found out when they came back to there tree house it was still the same time so they did not miss any of there time

I love the book because Mary pope Osborne is my favorite author.

4-0 out of 5 stars Loved this when I was little
Danny spends the day with a dinosaur, doing all the fun sort of things he'd do with the rest of his friends (i.e. playing hide and seek, etc).

This is a cute, comical, story with a sweet ending, but there really isn't *that* much to the plot.I'd probably give this three stars, except that I remember enjoying it when I was little and for whatever reason (the story, the illustrations, or both) it made an impression on me.So, for that I gave it an extra star.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for beginning readers...
This book is really great for beginning readers.My son is 6 years old & in 1st grade & it's perfect for his reading level.He can read about half the words or more, which is really good considering that this book is 64 pages.He really enjoys it.We break it up into 2 nights of reading so he doesn't get restless.The story itself is cute and the pictures aren't bad either.I would highly recommend this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Blast from the past
I bought this book for my four year old because I had a copy of the book when I was a kid. Plus my child is also named Dannie and she loves Dinosaurs as well so that made purchasing it all the more desirable. This book arrived quickly in the mail too so I will definately purchase more books from the seller.

3-0 out of 5 stars Slightly entertaining.... just beware....
I got this book for my almost three year old to introduce him to something outside the simple boardbook genre... You can only ready Jamberry and the Eric Carle books so many times before your brains begins to turn to mush... Anyways, my son thinks the book is fun and requests to read it at least 4 times a week, which is a good sign.

I think most parents will think this book is fine, but beware! As stated by another reviewer, it was clearly written an another era. The drawings are a little old school--lacks the vibrancy of current books on the market. It also has some elements to it that may be disturbing to some....The things that Danny is seeing at the museum include, "Indians (in sterotypical gard--a feather topped headpiece and bare-chested), Eskimos (haven't really heard that term in awhile), Guns, and Swords. Everyone (except for the "Indian and Eskimo") are white. The zoo in the books looks a little barbaric, but I really didn't take much issue with it. We have the book on CD, so we listen to it and read along. If you can find an edition with the CD, it really animates the story and makes it 10x better.

So if you are are super socially conscious and are very particular about what images and ideas your child is exposed to, preview the book at your library. Other wise, its decent entertainment for a young one....

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little dinosaur book
Our twin daughters were about 1 1/2 when we got them this book and they still like it at a few months past 3 years old. They are into the usual girly stuff but dragons and dinosaurs top the list, so we bought this book for the dinosaur aspect. I like the cadence and rhyming and the lesson taught though I think that still goes over their head a little but we do have two dogs and two cats and hope this will sink in a little. We would like to get more of the "How Do Dinosaurs..." books but we don't want to put all our eggs in one basket, I think any of these books would be a winner.If you've dinosaur addicts like I do, add this one to your dinosaur book collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, from tail to tale
Jane Yolen and Mark Teague team up again to bring their fans a portable companion board-book version of //How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Dogs?// This is a delightful story sure to fill a young reader's imagination with thoughts of zany prehistoric pals and their beloved canine counterparts. Each board page is colorfully illustrated with quirky antics and what-ifs, from the point of view of a concerned and quizzical narrator. The dinosaurs are friendly and boisterous, leaving a trail of messy energy on each page. Children will delight in the silly behavior of these extinct companions and you will too. There is an element of surprise and teaching, as well. Each dinosaur is referred to by its formal name on the same page, leading to some enjoyable enunciation practice sessions. It reflects the importance of taking care of animals and showing the way to love them through responsibility. This is one book in a series, so it is a rather brief reading, which may be perfect for a nap-time narrative. And, indeed, this is one good dinosaur tale.

We purchased this as a gift for a 5 year old boy.My daughter (4) and I looked through it before we wrapped it up for him.It is really fun with great pictures, pull-outs and pop-ups.The information is easy for kiddos to take in and interesting for adults as well.Perfect for any age, but best suited to the 5-12 crowd.I will be buying another copy for us in the future.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Dinosur Museum is a Great Book!
I bought this book for my 3 year old and I'm thrilled because I love to look at it. The first page has a dino lab with useful information about size, fossil formations, and plants. There are 2 drawers (flaps) you pull out and see actual fossils of a Velociraptor's claw, Triceratops brow horn, etc. And a scale chart (with the name, height, length and weight of several dinosaurs) so you can see how huge these dinosaurs were in comparison to human beings. Theres really too much to list but you will see that for yourself after you get the book.

From the beginning, you are taken back and educated about the many different dinosaurs: The Plant - Eaters, Gentle Giants, Small but Deadly (Ovirptor, Troodon, Deinonychus, etc.,) Suits of Armor ((Ankylosaurus, Triceratops, Stegasaurus,) The Meat Eaters, and The Flying Reptiles. It's so wonderful because it gives you detailed information on each dinosaur, the meaning of the names, how to pronounce it, etc. And the Pop-ups are wonderful! You feel like a big kid (for us grown-ups) going through this wonderful book, pulling and lifting flaps, discovering more tidbits and facts. It's very exciting and the children love it. You also learn about the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous period as well. My son loves this book but I love it, more.

I highly recommend this book for kids and grown-ups alike. It's a wonderful educational resource with great pictures and pop-ups, everyone is sure to enjoy The Dinosaur Museum. Welcome!
