This board book makes a lot more sense than Little Dinos Don't Hit.

We all know biters (I am a biter! Always have been)
They're awful little things, with their chompers all up on your flesh.
Biting happens for lots of reasons - anger, frustration, and disappointment; teething; some kids just like the feel of flesh between their teeth (it is super satisfying); misdirected emotions (it's so cute, it must be bitten!); etc.

This handy-dandy book shows what items are not ok for biting (shoes, toys, mom)

Little Dinos Don’t Bite
Author: Michael Dahl
Illustrator: Adam Record
Publisher: Capstone Young Readers
ISBN: 9781404875364

A 20 page board book with lively illustrations.

A lesson every child should learn, especially in this books target age bracket (2-4 years) is that there is absolutely, positively, NO BITING! What better way to enforce this lesson than with Little Dino and his Mommy, who may be sweet, but doesn’t like getting her tail chomped on by big, sharp teeth. Ouch!
Biting can do some seri

Lexi really loves this book. We read it to her a couple of weeks ago and we've been reading it pretty much every day since then. She has stopped biting, so it looks like it worked.

Super cute little book with great primary color illustrations about good good behavior (i.e. not biting). The bit about not biting Mom was especially silly and fun.

I had read Little Dinos Don't Yell and Little Dinos Don't HIT to my 28 month old daughter from our library which we visit at least 3 times a week if not more.
She has behavioral problems and I thought this might hell us/her/me especially sicne I'm due in February with another baby so I saw they had one for biting searching through the online catalog for board books I was so happy but reading this book to her made copy him biting her chair but when I put my finger close to her mouth she didn't bit

I received a copy of this through NetGalley. I loved this book. From the lively, colorful, and often times funny pictures to the positive behavior reinforcement. Too many times, it's always don't do this and this and this, that its nice to have a book that says hey, you can do this and this and this. Kids will relate to the pictures and simple text as they know and we know kids who have bitten. It would be perfect for young children especially those who have a shown a pattern of biting, or to te ...more

Sadly this gave Velociraptor ideas, rather than quashing them.
Here is a cute and simple way to teach very small children what is acceptable to bite and what is not. "Don't bite your shoes! And Don't bite your mom! Bite a snack instead, Little Dino". The large and colorful pages will appeal to little ones while they are being taught a valuable lesson. Little Dinos is a wonderful new board book series teaching babies very important behavioral concepts. Other titles include, "Don't Push" and "Don't Hit".

I enjoyed this book those most because the central lesson was "Don't bite your mom." Being that I am a mom, I found this book to be the best book of the night.

The illustrations were awesome. The drawings coincided with the lesson and added humour to each page. Overall I hope to see more about Little Dino. Especially ones that tell the kiddies to be nice to their moms.

This colorful board book featuring a mother dinosaur's instructions to her baby on what to bite and what (and who) not to bite is fun to read. While the dino might have sharp teeth with which to bite, that doesn't mean that everything he encounters is fodder for chewing. It would be a useful book for early readers.

** thanks to NetGalley & the publishers for this copy!

Excellent book to teach toddlers when biting is ok & when biting is not ok. Clarifies to kiddos that yes, teeth are for biting but only for biting food & snacks. Bite this, not that.

This book is so cute and funny! I love the illustrations, which focus on a little hipster dinosaur who likes to bite! I could see this one being read time and time again!

Super cute book to teach little ones not to bite. I will definitely be referring this series of books to the mom's at my clinic to help with negative behaviors.

I had to buy this book and the rest of the series after reading this title. It’s a big board book on simple but important etiquette lessons.
