Good Book How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? How do dinosaurs say good night? is a cute picture book to share with very young children. Written by Jane Yolen, and illustrated with great humour by Mark Teague, it was published in 2000 as one in a series of “How do dinosaurs …” books. All the books depict situations familiar to every young child: how to eat their food, play with their friends, clean their room, stay safe, learn to read, and so on. There are 23 such books so far, each describing a specific scenario.The books convey useful information about these situations children find themselves in, showing different way of behaving, and what they might lead to. In this one, we follow the antics of eleven different dinosaur children at bedtime. Part of what amuses us, is that every single one is crammed into a tiny child’s bed, with human “parents” coming to tuck them in at night. The lively details in the pictures lead to lots of observational chat between those sharing the book, and the expression on the faces on both humans and dinosaurs is priceless. The very short commentary – just one sentence per page or less – is all in rhyme:“How does a dinosaur say good night?when Papa comes in to turn off the light?Does a dinosaur slam his tail and pout?Does he throw his teddy bear all about?”It has lots of repetition; perfect if a young child is just beginning to recognise initial letters and be able to predict odd words. The illustrator, Mark Teague uses various different perspectives in his full-page pictures, making the reader laugh out loud sometimes at the antics of the dinosaur child. Each is a different type of dinosaur, whether a Tyrannosaurus Rex, a Triceratops, a Stegosaurus, a Pteranodon, an Allosaurus or many more favourite dinosaurs. Cleverly, the name of each appears somewhere in the picture, either as a name on the door, inscribed on end of the bed, or perhaps spelled out in coloured play bricks on the floor. As well as the variety of dinosaurs, the parents are also very diverse, representing all sorts of people from many different ethnic groups. The delaying tactics and tantrums employed by these young dinosaurs will be very familiar to young readers! And each time, although we see what appears to be the dinosaur behaving in this way, we learn that no, that is not what they did. We chuckle along, knowing that they are being very silly and look ludicrous. We try pouting like they do, in that funny fashion. Do they really behave like that? The answer is no, they most certainly do not! And then we find out how they DO behave, which is very cute indeed.The dinosaur children give their prehistoric parents great big hugs and kisses, cleverly use their enormous tails to turn out the light, tuck themselves in, and whisper, “Good night”. Cue for everyone to say “Aaah”, which I duly did, and my little 4 year-old Turkish friend smiled from ear to ear and pronounced it “Good”. He had enthusiastically spotted lots of details in the illustrations too, and enjoyed following the story. Keen to read, he sometimes guessed the words, which are printed in a satisfyingly large font, perfect for this.At the beginning of the book, the frontispiece shows each of the eleven dinosaur children playing on their bed. One is blowing bubbles, one jumping up and down on the mattress, one reading quietly and so on. Each is affectionately drawn, making us smile at their postures and clearly conveyed characters.Jane Yolen describes how she came to write this particular book. Her editor had a baby just a year old. One day she called and said, “My little boy hates going to bed at night and loves dinosaurs. Can you write something for him?” This short little tale written in verse was the result. When the author first saw the illustrations by Mark Teague, depicting knowingly naughty dinosaur children, and their parents in various stages of frustration and despair, she knew “he’d taken my little rhyme a giant step further on”. How do dinosaurs say good night? has won many awards. It is a lovely playful book, full of whimsy and fun but also with a great friendly message.

  • Dinosaurs are extinct cause they went to sleep and never woke up Night owls are still around.I read this in line at the supermarket beats tabloids any day Unless Elvis does decide to really come back It s cute and funny Love dinosaurs I still love Dr Seuss This reminds me of the time when I was a kid and the grandparents gave me an ironic nightgown with a dinosaur on it who didn t wanna go to bed I d point to it as my reason explanation for not going to bed Dinosaurs don t sleep Guess they do W [...]


  • I suppose it is not surprising how many children s books are illustrated in a simplistic, spare, or at best cartoonish fashion And that s fine, of course art doesn t have to be complicated to be good What surprises me is how many children s books even children s books bearing impressive looking award seals have illustrations that might kindly be described as abstract, but would likely described as ugly by the average 6 year old The beautiful Carl series example You re A Good Dog, Carl springs t [...]

  • Now anyone would think it would be easier to put a 2 year old boy down for a nap than to put a dinosaur to bed You d be wrong Dinosaurs are surprisingly well behaved at bedtime They even tuck in their tails And read in bed A Grandson Storyhour Recommendation


  • This is a delightful book, perfect for bedtime I particularly loved the rhyming structure, and the illustrations were perfect Not only did they convey emotion, they also portrayed parents diversely.


  • The text was fun, nothing spectacular maybe I was expecting by the children s book goddess that is Jane Yolen but the rhyme is great for those bed time read alouds And the story is a very cute and amusing concept I think the illustrations really brought it to life The expressions on the dinosaur s faces are SO funny, and the parents, gosh, I bet every mom and dad has made one of those faces at bedtime, haha I thought it was really clever how the actual name of each dinosaur was written somewher [...]


  • We all loved this one Similar to another story about dinosaurs being sick we used to own, it s a level 1 reading book at best But this one is best read out loud for two reasons First of all, only a parent can truly to justice to the poetic rhyme of the words in this one, and second, because the kids really need to be focusing on these big, beautiful, descriptive pictures while the story is being read Highly recommended.


  • I just adore Yolen s books This one centers on different dinosaurs whose names are hidden within the illustrations so kids can search for the name showing, first, how not to go to bed, then showing appropriate bedtime behavior The human moms and dads are of different ages, races, and body types just like real life moms and dads The contrast of the huge dinosaurs in kid sized bedrooms is hysterical This book is an excellent read aloud that invites audience participation.

  • How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night is a picture book that ultimately challenges young children to say goodnight to their parents without the drama and emotion that is often associated with bedtime Through repetition and rhyme, this concept book describes inappropriate bedtime responses by a variety of dinosaur species They include stomping their feet, asking for a piggy back ride, throwing their teddy bears and roaring when mother or father says it is time to say goodnight The illustrations only ad [...]


  • This book would be a great tool to introduce a dinosaur unit The teacher could have the students look through the book and see how many dinosaurs they can name The teacher can also have the children look for the names of the dinosaurs on different pages For older kids, the teacher could have the students study the names in the book, to help them build their vocabulary, and maybe do a spelling test on the names A spelling test should be done for grades 5 or 6.The teacher could use the book as an [...]


  • I agree with other reviewers that this story is an entertaining appropriate bedtime behavior book There wasn t anything in here that wasn t likable But the kids that I read this to weren t terribly impressed.My niece liked it just fine, I suppose, although I don t know if she actually heard it She was intent on finding the name of the dinosaur hidden on every page, so I really don t think her primary aim was to hear the story My nephew just didn t tune in, which really surprised me He likes dino [...]


  • This is such a great book for toddlers and preschoolers I would classify this book as science fiction because it involves dinosaurs All young readers love books about dinosaurs They are excited about them some reason This book shows different dinosaurs acting out when it is time to go to sleep But then the book shows that this in not the right way to behave There is a great lesson with this story which is great for preschoolers.The illustrations in this book are very details and realistic They a [...]


  • All of the various dinosaurs pitching fits about going to bed are illustrated in a cartoonish manner mimicking the cartoonish behavior of small children Sometimes I love the dino gestures and other times I love the look on the faces of the parents I was surprised that the book was published in 2000 because many of the human parents have a 1950s illustrated vibe that seems out of place.At the end the good little dinosaurs tuck in their tails and hit the sack I do think the final illustration of a [...]


  • Pleasant read aloud about bedtime problems Added bonus is the use of dinosaurs as the main characters Each one is identified on the end pages, which spurred many of the children to seek additional books about dinosaur from the nonfiction shelves There are three other Dinosaur behavior books in this series by Jane Yolen Eat Dinner , Get Well So Soon , and Go to School.


  • Basic plot The various tactics little dinosaurs use to get out of going to bedThere were dinosaurs I actually recognized in this one I was excited The art continues to be great, and the actions of the dinosaurs will cause a chuckle from the adults reading to their children I like these books, and will continue to seek them out.


  • There are lots of books out to teach kids good manners, but when it comes to little boys, few things get through to them in the same way as dinosaurs Having only a godson, I have no idea if this ploy is as effective with little girls, but I imagine it must be.


  • Jane Yolen s series about Dinosaurs will sure to be a fan favorite Both boys and girls will enjoy the dinosaur characters Yolen has created This is a an adorable series and I highly recommend them.


  • Very much in line with the other dinosaur books by Yolen and Teague A way to discuss children s appropriate and inappropriate behaviors without directly using children.


  • A great bedtime story that I was not familiar with The art is fantastic and the writing funny And the message is spot on And you get to hook your kids on dinosaurs as a side benefit.
