Book Review: How Do Dinosaurs Say Merry Christmas? by Jane Yolen
My son Miles, loves dinosaurs and the whole How Do Dinosaurs.... series he adores. He is often asking us to read them to him over and over again. So we had to check out from the library, "How do Dinosaurs Say Merry Christmas?" by Jane Yolen for Christmas.
From decorating the tree to wrapping presents, little dinosaurs love to celebrate Christmas - and everything about it. With ornaments on the branches and carolers singing at the door, the spirit of Christmas is finally here and filling the hearts of families everywhere. But when the stockings are hung on the chimney, and the cookies are left out for Santa, how can little Dinosaurs go to sleep? Children will laugh out loud as dinosaurs secretly lick candy canes, take sneaky peeks at gifts, and disrupt the traditional family feast.
My kids love this series and begs for us to read them. I love this series because they have a way to help children understand why they shouldn't do something. This book was no different. The illustrations showed the funny tales of each dinosaurs and roughly what they would look like in real life. My kids love looking at the pictures and seeing the dinosaurs causing mischief. I love that in this book it talks about the manners that children seem to forget around Christmas. It's a good way to remind them on how to behave for Santa. I recommend buying this book and keeping it on your bookshelf.
