Dinosaur's Binkit

Sandra Boynton, Author, Sandra Boynton, Illustrator Little Simon $10.95 (14p) ISBN 978-0-689-82203-2
Boynton's (Snoozers) signature style showcases a restless baby dinosaur who can't go to bed without his (or her) security blanket in this charming large-trim board book. Her rhyming text cajoles the little creature to settle down: ""Dinosaur O Dinosaur,/ you fuss and fret and yawn./ It's time to brush your dino teeth/ and put your p.j.'s on."" A silver foil moon, red felt blanket and yellow felt ""binkit"" (no ordinary blanket, that) are among the touchable elements: in one of the most amusing flaps, the wail ""I NEED MY BINKIT!"" is emblazoned across the inside of Dinosaur's big, pink, tooth-lined mouth. The book is cute without being cloying, thanks to the authorial voice, which softens from stern to sympathetic, and the dino's comic desperation. This light, witty treatment of the eternal subjects of the ""blanky"" and the bedtime tantrum will make a welcome addition to the bedside bookshelf. And with its felt inserts, it's a book kids can really cozy up to. Ages 3 mos.-5 yrs. (Sept.)
