How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You?
Jane Yolen, , illus. by Mark Teague. . Scholastic/Blue Sky, $16.99 (40pp) ISBN 978-0-545-14314-1
Several series grow with new picture books this fall.
The latest in Yolen and Teague's long-running series features dinosaurs testing boundaries—then making amends: “You woke in the morning in such a bad mood,” a human mom reproaches her colossal neovenator, who grumpily rubs his eyes in his bed. But later, an ouranosaurus with a crenellated red fan along his spine exits the house, blowing a kiss to his adoring dad: “But then you blew kisses and waved from the door. I love you, I love you, my dinosaur.” Kids should relate to the dinosaurs' mood swings and take heart in the notion that love conquers all. Up to age 4.
