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. ( )

I don't know. This just didn't catch me. It was a good enough book to read aloud to the right audience, definitely younger, but it just lacked something. Minimalism was well done though and it was certainly a story a parent would appreciate as easily as a child. ( )

Kindergartners and the younger set will enjoy seeing little Dinosaur take on the challenges of the world around him: a pile of leaves, a big slide, a plate of spaghetti, even grown-ups-- nothing can stand in the way of his boundless energy. But as the day winds down and he takes on the bath and the toothbrush, that energy starts to wane, and when it's time to face his biggest challenge of the day-- bedtime-- well, you can't win them all.
