Wee Reads: How do Dinosaurs Stay Safe? by Jane Yolen

Ever since Finn was born, and even before then, we would read to him. We wanted to show him reading from an early age. Now he loves us to read the same books, over, and over, and over. But it is the sweetest thing when he likes to pick out a book and climb into our laps.

What Finn Reads....  


How do Dinosaurs Stay Safe? by Jane Yolen


From crossing the street with Mama to encountering a stranger, the playful but careful antics of America's favorite dinosaurs will make readers laugh aloud -- and prompt discussion of safety issues.

Few things in childhood are as important as learning how to behave safely, and the topic deserves discussion in every family. Now Jane Yolen and Mark Teague deftly approach this critical subject with warmth, humor, and hilarity.

The wildly funny contrast between Teague's massive dinosaur children and their human-sized surroundings makes this subject especially appealing and funny. Where a book about safety for children might be potentially frightening, the antics of immense dinosaurs jumping on the bed or learning how to dial 9-1-1 on Mama's tiny phone will keep readers laughing from start to finish.

Parents, children, teachers, and other caregivers need a comfortable way to discuss safety, and this book provides just that. And as children learn invaluable rules about safe behavior, they'll beg to read it again and again for the wildly appealing silliness on each page. Here is a book that belongs in every household!

What Finn Thinks...

Do you like this book?
Yeah! I like it 30 out of 10!

What is your favorite part of the book?
The dinosaurs, because I like dinosaurs. I like the pictures. I like it when they don't be safe (Finnlan!)

What do you think about the cover? 
I don't like it. I just like the pictures of the dinosaurs. I like real dinosaurs. 

What Momma Thinks... 

Finn really enjoyed when I read this to him. The How do Dinosaurs books are some of Finn's favorites. My favorite part is that they always teach him something very important, and dinosaurs are his favorite thing anyway so it really makes him listen. At the beginning of this book, in particular, there is a page that has a bunch of different dinosaurs and he loved asking what kind of dinosaurs they were. Well, he does that throughout the entire book anyway. Which I love that they put the kind of dinosaur it is, right underneath them. So I can actually tell him what they are, unlike with a lot of other books that have dinosaurs.
