Would have liked it much better if the dinosaurs weren't all boys. The bright side is that "he" is really easy to change to "she" when reading aloud.

Very similar to the Hanukkah title, except, obviously, about Christmas. The humor comes from seeing the realistic-looking dinosaurs, oversized (though not to scale as far as I know), interacting with humans and Christmas time objects such as Christmas trees and so on. The art manages to inject a lot of personality into the dinosaurs, giving this one a sly look, that one a manic look, etc.They're pretty adorable.The story again contrasts good and bad behavior on Christmas (unwrapping everyone's presents before Christmas, licking all the candy canes, eating all the cookies vs. caroling, trimming the tree, kissing your grandparents and sleeping when Santa comes). It'd make a good storytime title because of the oversize format and popular subject matter. ( )

This is an excellent book with great imagination. The pictures included are fantastic and the rhymes of the dinosaurs are very creative and imaginative. This is a great book and I highly recommend it. ( )

Ho! Ho! Ho! With more than 9 million books in print, America's favorite dinosaurs can't wait to celebrate Christmas!

From decorating the tree to wrapping presents, little dinosaurs love to celebrate Christmas-and everything about it. With ornaments on the branches and carolers singing at the door, the spirit of Christmas is finally here and filling the hearts of families everywhere. But when the stockings are hung on the chimney, and the cookies are left out for Santa, how can little dinosaurs go to sleep? It's so exciting! How can they possibly calm down and behave?

Children will laugh out loud as dinosaurs secretly lick candy canes, take sneaky peeks at gifts, and disrupt the traditional family feast.

With holiday surprises around every corner, the award-winning team of Jane Yolen and Mark Teague create an engaging, fun gift sure to be read again and again, year after year. How do dinosaurs say Merry Christmas? The same way they say Happy Chanukah: With an abundance of love, joy, memory, and gratitude.
