"How does a dinosaur say good nightThis delightful book captivates the reader with the whimsical depiction of different dinosaurs being put to bed by human parents. Each dinosaur is identified by its species name cleverly hidden on the headboard of its bed or on its blanket, etc. The dinosaurs' cheerful acceptance of bedtime is a not so subtle example to the young reader, but the lesson is sugar coated via the engaging art work and poetry. There are also imaginative pictures of each dinosaur on the inside of the front and back covers.
