How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?

How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?

by Jane Yolen Illustrated by Mark Teague

In each playful spread of this read-aloud bedtime book, parents are ready to put their kids to bed — but these youngsters just happen to be dinosaurs! And though they may stomp and slam their tails a bit, in the end they act a lot like people: they give a big kiss, turn out the light, and whisper "good night."

Filled with wonderful detail and humor, children and their parents will love the expressions and antics of the eleven different dinosaur children depicted here, and each species is spelled out somewhere in the young dinosaur's bedroom. In the end, young dinosaurs behave a lot like people do: They give a big kiss, turn out the light, tuck in their tails, and whisper "good night."

Delightful illustrations and lilting rhymes make the perfect reading-aloud and promote memorization as well as word recognition skills.
