One of Neo's all-time favourite books is by Sandra Boynton. He loves board books by this author and wants to read them all. When we saw this, we had to get it. All sorts of dinos doing many fun things. Neo was impressed!!

What a delight to have my great niece and nephews (ages 3-8) read this to me. I love Boynton! This is a fun walk through opposites(good/bad, large/small, happy/sad, etc.) illustrated with dinosaurs.

Dinosaurs are a lot of fun and when you get to read about them with kids, the joy increases leaps and bounds. Sandra Boynton's illustrations are indeed charming.

A worthy children's book that is fun and engaging and would be easy for a little one to sink their teeth into.

There is no such thing as a bad or ugly dinosaur.

I have this one memorized no problem. However I'm frequently distracted by pointing out which of the other Boynton books I have from the back cover. It's kind of like having two books in one.

This quick read would be enjoyable for young students beginning to analyze concepts like, opposites, and how things are alike and different. The book skims through different ways to compare dinosaurs. The pictures are well drawn, showing action relating to the text. The text is largely printed and repetitive to help with letter identification. The only thing I would change about this charming little book is the illustration of the dinosaurs. I believe student may have a hard time connecting to t ...more

I was not impressed by "dinosaurs cute, dinosaurs not" line. Otherwise, it was okay and Oliver enjoyed it.

This isn't the best Boynton book out there. It's a fine book, but just nowhere near as great as her others. It doesn't hold the child's attention as well as her other books and the illustrations are a bit dull.

Eh. Not my favorite Boynton book. I don't like some of the language about not being cute, etc.

This is the 1st book I'm updating read by the father of my kids. Yes, the dad gets to read when my hands are full, so most books don't get a review. I missed reading this book. Seems like a good fun book from one of our favorite author. We know the hippos pigs and other characters from her series. Absolutely love the illustrations in this book and we'll explained behavior. Enough for a 2YO to understand.

Science says that dinosaurs were either kidnapped by aliens from the Pleiades or died when a killer lawyer asteroid made litigious contact with the planet Earth. In fact, the dinosaurs are alive and well in the Sandra Boynton universe. Here, they busy themselves with teaching toddlers about colours, directionality, adjectives and antonyms. Not bad for a board book.

It's short and fun and your toddler or preschooler will probably love this. All the illustrations are done in the inimitable Boynton

Dinosaurs come in all shapes, sizes, colors and looks (however crazy those looks might be).

This large board book is another great SB selection, this time featuring a colorful cast of dinosaurs, which of course are always popular at our house. This reminds me (for obvious reasons) of another favorite, Dinosaur Roar!, but I almost think I like this one better, at least as far as the illustrations and various dinorepresentations go. Her books always have a great flow and plenty of amusing things to

Andy asks for this book again and again, back to back. We have to start and end the day by reading this. And he giggles through it every time. It is a good book for talking about opposites and colors, but mainly just a really fun read. We made up signs for various adjectives (shivering for 'dinosaurs cold,' flexing our muscles for 'dinosaurs strong,' etc.) and Andy does them while we read. He even does them when looking through the book on his own. It's really cute. And when the dinosaurs get st ...more

Sandra Boynton books are all a lot of fun to read to little ones, but this one is my favorite. I have the best memories reading this with each of my kids when they were little. As the reader, you can act out pages as you read and the kids will start to play along. My daughter would watch my face intently as I would read "dinosaurs SAD" and "dinosaurs BAD." My boys would giggle as I poked the dinosaurs and read "dinosaurs SPINY" and we'd all yell "OUCH!"

Over the last five years I have probably r

Another Sandra Boynton book, another hit with Chloe. Dinosaurs cute, Dinosaurs not gives her some trouble as she thinks the "nots" are cute as well. Also, she thinks the "bad" dinosaurs are just sad, but that is probably a big ball of psychology that we need to deal with much later.

She particularly likes saying "dinosaurs crammed in a "chloe-vator" rather than elevator.

a fun read. In heavy bedtime rotation right now.

We missed story time, so Natalie walked me around the children's room. I let her stand holding herself up with the board book shelves and I saw this. I thought, dinosaurs and Sandra Boynton! This should be great! Well, it was just okay. I wanted it to be more quirky, like All the Hippos Go Beserk, but it was really more of an opposites / adjectives book. Still fun, but not awesome.

This Boynton book rhymes and teaches children about opposites through dinosaurs. I told this story in Spanish using flannel art pieces for a dinosaur/dragon-themed program for both Spanish and bilingual story time. Although my Spanish re-telling didn't rhyme, one can never go wrong with a dinosaur story!

This is a cute book. It puts an adjective after the word dinosaur on most of the pages and each page is an opposite of the other. The only problem is that it makes my daughter say her descriptive words after the nouns like -the house red-. She really likes it though and wants me to read it over and over again.
