Playful peek into the homes of dinosaur children and their parents at bedtime.

Substituting children for dinosaurs, Jane Yolen explores a world where dinosaurs are animated and with nightly routines. These anthropomorphized reptillians run the spectrum of different species, from the Pteranodon to the Stegosaurus. Composed of familiar bedtime scenes, it’s the perfect book to read and share with your child right before they go to sleep. With delightfully and humorously drawn illustrations that never grow tiresome or ordinary, it will instantly become one of your child’s favorites on its way to becoming a classic.

This is a cute story about different types of dinosaurs not wanting to go to bed. They keep coming up with different excuses about why they can't go to bed and in the end they go to bed peacefully. ( )

We have so much fun with this book. The 4-year-old gets into the action and likes to pretend that he's a T-Rex. The art is just perfect not too cutesy and just cartoony enough that you can't help but imagine this huge animal trying to do his bedtime rituals with you. The entire series is fun and I love just about everything that Jane Yolen writes. ( )
