This one was fun! Dinosaur kicks everyone's ass! ROARR! But bedtime wins in the end! I really related to this when we read it because we had just started giving our son (doctor-approved!) melatonin so it was poignant to see him, too, kick everyone's ass and then lose to bedtime, who was not playing fair.

Dinosaur vs. Bedtime is a fiction book about the dinosaur versing many things but at the end of the day he faces his biggest challenge which is bedtime. Little dinosaur is full of energy and confidence when he comes to nothing stopping him. This is a great children book because it keeps the child focused on whats about to happen next. There are many "Roar! Roar! Roar!" that the reader can use loud strong voices to interact with its audience. Even though sometimes adults think that children do not come with an off which they will sooner or later need to recharge which is called bedtime. ( )

In my opinion, this is a fun book for young children. I liked the book because it appeals to those who are young, such as infants and two-year-olds. The story is intended for beginning readers because of the limited text, large print, and short sentences. The language and writing of the story makes it easy for parents and educators to become interactive with their readers. The text uses the word, “Roar!,” plenty of times which can engage readers into what is going on because of the attention of saying words loudly. The words in the story are easy, understandable, and clear to those of young age. There is a consistent pattern of saying “Dinosaur versus...” Which makes it predictable for children, and gets them excited to see what else the Dinosaur will face. For example, “Dinosaur versus a bowl of spaghetti!” and “Dinosaur wins!” “Dinosaur versus bath time and tooth brushing!” and then “Dinosaur wins again!” The chalk-like, bold illustrations matches the audiences' age group. Perhaps the best part of this book is the main message. As the dinosaur goes about his day conquering fun obstacles, at the end the “Dinosaur must face his biggest challenge! Bedtime!” Although the dinosaur roars and roars, he ends up getting tired and falling asleep. “Bedtime wins.” No matter what how much children try to fight against sleeping, at the end, children will get tired and sleep.

This dinosaur may beat lots of things like scaring parents, but he won't beat bedtime. Everyone eventually has to fall asleep at some point or another. This dinosaur tries to fight it, but doesn't win when it comes to bedtime. Short, simple book that kids would enjoy. ( )

A silly book in the Dinosaur style all about fighting bedtime. I think we all know who wins in the end, but it is fun to watch Dinosaur try. ( )
