How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?

How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?
by Jane Yolen and Mark Teague

This book makes me smile.  Seriously.  It is full of fun rhythm and adorable artwork.  The author has clearly put children to bed during her lifetime and understands some of the antics that can occur.

The beginning of the book presents different scenarios about how dinosaurs could be naughty at bedtime, but finishes by saying that dinosaurs don't do those things and shows the good things that little dinosaurs do when getting ready for bed.  Mark Teague does an amazing job of portraying the naughtiest of dinosaurs, along with the sweetest of dinosaurs in his artwork.  The book includes ten different dinosaurs with their names hidden within the illustrations.
