In spite of the boy’s poor behavior, no one will have any doubt of this mother’s love as she tucks him tenderly in, the bright, busy digital illustrations speaking volumes.
Knapman slips occasional alliteration and rhyme into the exchanges (“Towel!” “GROWL!”) to create a read-aloud-friendly cadence…When Bob Shea’s Dinosaur vs. Bedtime (2008) begins to pall, here’s an even wilder rumpus.
The dinosaurs and their foolish antics will delight young listeners. This book does provide some teachable lessons about the best way to act. A roaring good read-aloud for dinosaur lovers and parents who have little ones like Mo.
