This book had nice bright colors and illustrations, but what I loved most about it is that it is super fun to read and my little one was completely interested in it. We have read it over and over and over again with the same excitement as the first time.

This colorful book was equally loved by both my toddler son (almost 2) and preschooler daughter (almost 4). The illustrations are clever and make use of "multi-media."

A fun story about dinosaurs that teaches a lesson about not making assumptions about people before you meet them. The illustrations are very colorful and the narrative is simple and short. Our girls enjoy watching this book read aloud on the "Tumblebooks" online audiobook site (tumblebooks.com) and they've borrowed it a few times from the library.

Dinosaurs who are terrified about the mythical "fiercest dinosaur in the world" discover that reality is sometimes different to the truth. A funny ending, lovely illustrations and palpable dinosaur fear. A good read.

Cute story with a double surprise ending, but the kids I read this to didn't seem to know what to make of it. They definitely liked all the BOOM BOOM BOOM parts, but I think the finale just didn't quite work for them.

A big tyranosaurus is really just a little baby dinosaur that isn't too terrible.
