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.

Dinosaur vs Bedtime follows a young dinosaur who cannot be stopped, even when facing a pile of leaves and a big bowl of spaghetti, but will he win when he faces the daunting challenge of bedtime? The colors and illustrations are cute and the constant roaring that the dinosaur does would be great to read with your toddler because they can roar along with you. It ends on a soft note but I don't think it unwinds slowly enough for it to be an effective bedtime book, (the child might still be excited from all his roaring). However, it is a cute, funny book and I would recommend it.
Dinosaur vs. Bedtime was selected as a Best Book of the Year by Amazon and a Bulletin Blue Ribbon by the Center for Children's Books. ( )
