Labels in the illustrations and endpapers will help dino mavens identify their favorites. Don'ts and Do's in a familiar formula go down easily for fans and will provide a good conversation starter for parents. --Kirkus ReviewsPraise for How Do Dinosaurs Say I'M MAD?Yolen understands the value of the book beyond its surface entertainments, offering a note about the realities of anger and the value of apology. And Teague upholds his end of the bargain, carefully attending to the authenticity of the dinosaurs on display, and providing a diversity of human families as well. A solid, welcome addition to the series. --Booklist Praise for How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?An ALA Notable BookA School Library Journal Best Book of the YearA Booklist Editor's ChoiceA New York Times, Publishers Weekly, and Booksense bestseller.A delight from start to finish; better buy more than one.--Booklist
