How do dinosaurs say, "Merry Christmas?" That is the question kids will try to answer as they read through this engaging and silly holiday book.
From School Library Journal:
Yolen and Teague add to their delightful dinosaur canon with this funny, gentle reminder of proper behavior for the most eagerly anticipated of holidays. As in previous titles, the dinosaurs have human parents and each one can be identified by the inclusion of its name in the illustrations. The 10 featured behemoths also adorn the endpapers. Enhancing the hilarity are the cats and dogs in the role of family pets bearing witness to the dinosaurs' antics-such as sneaking out of bed to peek, ripping open presents, deconstructing the tree, pre-licking candy canes, dumping out stockings, and eating Santa's cookies. Don't pass up this exuberant guide to achieving yuletide harmony.
I have created 10 NO PREP book extension activities to go along with this title.
