Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The bestselling, award-winning team of Yolen and Teague are back with another playful dinosaur tale--a third full-length picture book about how dinosaurs behave at mealtime.

How does a dinosaur eat all his food?

Does he burp, does he belch, or make noises quite rude?

Does he pick at his cereal, throw down his cup,

hoping to make someone else pick it up?

Just like kids, dinosaurs have a difficult time learning to behave at the table. However, with a little help from Mom and Dad, these young dinosaurs eat all before them with smiles and goodwill.

As in their previous books, Yolen and Teague capture children's rambunctious natures with playful read-aloud verse and wonderfully amusing pictures.

Review:

"Echoing the tone and look of How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? and How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?, these collaborators' latest guide to dino etiquette offers a jaunty comedy of errors, er, table manners. In the first half, against spare backdrops with a 1950s feel, dinosaurs behave kid-pleasingly naughtily when their human parents serve them meals. As Yolen's rhyming narrative asks questions ('How does a dinosaur eat all his food? Does he burp, does he belch, or make noises quite rude?'), Teague's illustrations provide affirmative answers, comically capturing the dining dinos' antics: one is covered in spaghetti after throwing his plate into the air, another blows bubbles in his milk glass and a third lies on the floor, happily sticking beans up his nose. The tables turn in the second half, when narrative and pictures offer Miss Manners alternatives while revisiting the same prehistoric heroes. One willingly says 'Please' and 'Thank you' (while wearing a bib) and another 'tries every new thing, at least one small bite. He makes no loud noises — that isn't polite.' Young dinosaur fans will enjoy encountering novel characters here (all labeled on the endpapers), as Teague has invited an unusual array of species to this tasty feast. Ages 3-5. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Some tea parties are for grown-ups.

Some are for girls.

But this tea party is for a very special guest.

And it is important to follow some rules . . .

like providing comfortable chairs,

and good conversation,

and yummy food.

But sometimes that is not enough for special guests,

especially when their manners are more Cretaceous than gracious . . .

Introducing Tea Rex, a guest that just about any child would love to have to tea!

Synopsis:

Just like kids, dinosaurs have difficulty behaving at the table. However, with a little help, these young dinosaurs learn to tame their rambunctious natures. Full color.

Love the whole series of "How do Dinosaurs" books. The illustrations are very detailed, but clever and interesting. The text is simple - the perfect read for a young child. Particularly one taken with dinosaurs. The hardcovers are oversized books, well worth the price. We're collecting the entire series.
