Super Happy

I am so grateful to this Web site. I purchased 12 books from my children's past .. 15+ years ago at a fraction of the cost new. They are like new quality. Fast shipping too. Thank you so much!

Favorite bedtime story

This is one of my daughter's favorite bedtime stories! The illustrations are so fun and detailed, and these books teach children about the dinosaurs. It is also very helpful when teaching children bedtime procedure!

Colored on nearly every page.

I was hoping to give this to my granddaughter for Christmas, but it not only has the previous owners name in it, but nearly every single page has been colored on! How can you sell something that has been so ruined?

Great Book!

This wonderful picture book, including ten tired dinosaurs from prize-winning writer Jane Yolen and best-selling illustrator Mark Teague celebrates the funny, endearing book that most children will love for many years. I thought this book was great! My 3 year old cousin comes over every so often to spend the night, but has trouble sleeping someplace else other than his home. When I saw this book there was no contemplating buying it, since Justin (my cousin) adores dinosaurs. The pictures are fantastic and the story line is excellent. This book works great when were trying to put him to sleep. The dinosaurs are a good influence in showing children that dinosaurs also give their loved ones hugs and kisses before going to bed, and may even cry a little or throw themselves on the bed. I think a lot of children can relate to this book, and find it enjoyable, and like my cousin, can not wait until we get to read the book. This humorous bedtime story I'm sure will be a hit for anyone who has younger children.

Bedtime with a dose of Humor

Jane Yolen has written a lovely bedtime story about the way little dinosaurs go to bed and say good night. Do they slam their tales and pout? Do they throw their teddy bears all about? No... they give kisses and hugs and whisper good night. This is a wonderful bedtime book, told in rhyme that will amuse and delight your pre-schoolers as they enjoy the familiar antics of going to bed. With large expressive illustrations and an easy rhyming pattern, children will be able to "help" you read this story in no time. This is the perfect book to share before tucking in and turning out the lights and a great addition to home libraries.

Dinosaurs Teach Good Bedtimes Manners

In a family with four children, bedtime is a challenge. However, this book has helped to remind four dinosaur lovers how their beloved friends behave when it is time to rest. Not only is this book beautifully illustrated, it provides text our children have memorized....including the names of all the dinosaur friends!Parents and kids alike will enjoy reading this story over and over because each reading brings a new discovery.

Outstanding bedtime tale

How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? entertains while also teaching good bedtime behavior. Combine children's fascination with dinosaurs and Mark Teague's irresisible, humorous illustrations and you have a sure hit with both child and parent. The text is rhyming and fun to read aloud. The question is asked repeatedly, "do dinosaurs do this (bad behavior)" and then the answer is in the last few pages, "no, they don't do this (bad behavior), they do this (good behavior)." The illustrations serve to emphasize the behaviors partly due to the huge size of the dinosaurs. Each picture contains the name of the dinosaur also.Along with a variety of dinosaurs, this book also features a variety of moms and dads which helps to give it a multicultural flavor. For those children who enjoy the book for its dinosaur content, I also highly recommend "Ten Little Dinosaurs" by Pattie Schnetzler and "Sammy and the Dinosaurs" by Ian Whybrow.
