“A new cast of brightly colored dinosaurs appears in this charming back-to-school story. The text’s easy rhyme and rhythm will be familiar to those who have read other books in this series, and Teague’s charismatic and naughty dinosaurs will continue to delight readers with their antics and exuberance. Stygimoloch using one arm to prop up his raised hand as he blurts out is also likely to draw a smile from veteran teachers. A fun read-aloud for the first day of school.”—School Library Journal
“This eighth entry (counting the two board books) in the Yolen/Teague How Do Dinosaurs series features a cast of 10 brightly colored dinosaurs that manage to dominate the double-page spreads without overwhelming them. Questions arise when the dinos are put in common school-day situations. Would dinosaurs walk to school or carpool? Would they stomp and make a fuss on the bus? Would they roughhouse and punch and disrupt the class by yelling or fidgeting with their tails in the air? Of course not. Before they leap out the door at the end of the school day, readers will realize that these dinosaurs are helpful, tidy, and protective, “growling at the bullies till the bullying ends.” Yolen’s short, rhyming text and Teague’s irresistible, cavorting dinosaurs perfectly convey how dinosaurs could behave in school, large and powerful though they may be.”–Booklist
Jane Yolen and Mark Teague have done another wonderful job at creating a funny book that gets small children to think about their own behavior at school. This is a fun book for the classroom, library story time, and at home.”–Suite101.com
