How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Birthday?

Jane Yolen, illus. by Mark Teague. Scholastic/Blue Sky, $6.99 (14p) ISBN 978-0-545-15353-9
As in their previous books, Yolen and Teague delicately nudge readers toward appropriate behavior using rhetorical questions and loveably indecorous dinosaurs. At a birthday party, does a dinosaur child "finger the frosting,/ lick all the ice cream?" or "grab all the presents?/ Snatch up every card?" A yellow and red Kentrosaurus "greets every guest—then tells them/ their presents are simply the best." As ever, the joy is in the dinos' impish behavior, as Yolen and Teague prove there's no social situation that can't be made more fun with dinosaurs. Ages 3–5. (Sept.)
