      Basic Plot: While we may assume dinosaurs are messy, picky, impolite eaters, in reality they are very polite and open to trying new things. Really.This is a very quick rhymer to read. The art is really good, especially in the pictures where the dinos are misbehaving. The looks on the parents' faces are pretty well priceless. I also like how the names of the specific dino types are embedded within the pictures. It's subtle and works well for parents like me, who don't necessarily know all the nam [...]

      This is definitely a clever way to teach its target audience about proper table manners. I like the use of the dinosaurs, which not only attract the children, but take the place of the children in these particular situations. I also like the examples that are given when it comes to beginning with how NOT to eat your food and then give the proper examples of how manners should be practiced. I think this is a good teaching tool for the 3-7 age range and I think kids will get a kick out of this!

      How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food by Jane Yolen and Mark Teaque goes through all the sceniros about how dinosaurs could eat their food rudely. After this is done, it demonstrates how dinosaurs really eat their food; politely. I really enjoyed this book and thought it could teach a very good lesson to children. The authors were smart by chosing dinosaurs becasue dinosaurs are soemthing that children love and are interested in. The book is rhymes, which is very good for holding children's attention. [...]

      As part of the "How Do Dinosaurs" series, Yolen and Teague collaborate to bring us another role model book wrapped up in a simple digestible format. Mark Teague's illustrations are engaging and have a nonsensical edge that allows a time-old message to be reiterated in a enjoyable way. The book, written in a series of rhyming questions, follows a series of common child-like reactions to food and highlights how silly they seem. At the same time it asks children to really think about the consequenc [...]

      How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food? blends a child's curiosity and interest in dinosaurs and the parental desire to teach table manners. The story starts out showing colourful illustrations of various types of dinosaurs as they are in the act of eating in ill-mannered ways. The caption below asks if the dinosaur ate this way. For instance, "does he bubble his milk?" At the end of the story, the child gets an answer that dinosaurs always ate with the best of manners. Though definitely not realistic [...]

      How do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food is just a god funny book that the children love to read! They think it's funny and they love to see the different dinosaurs fumble over themselves in each illustration. I would use this book in the classroom to connect to the real world for children. Children love dinosaurs so if I were to do a unit on dinosaurs I would definitely include this book not to teach any facts about dinosaurs but may be to put inside one of my learning centers to support the theme as we [...]

      “How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food” by Jane Yolen is a rhythmic picture book about breaking the stereotypes of how dinosaurs eat their food. It starts by depicting all the imaginative rude and impolite ways one would think a dinosaur would eat. However, in the end, the book surprisingly describes a polite and mannerly way the dinosaurs actually eat. This is a wonderfully illustrated story with elaborate drawings of different dinosaurs all with their scientific name somewhere on the page. The d [...]

      How do Dinosaurs eat their food? Do they spit half eaten broccoli on the floor? Do they fidget in the chair, or throw spaghetti in the air? No! A dinosaur says Please and Thank You and sits very still. He makes no loud noises, that isn't polite and he always tries new things, even just one bite.This would be a good book for a unit on the food pyramid or My Plate.It would also be good for a dinosaur unit as each dinosaur that appears has their scientific name in the picture with them.It would als [...]

      A hilarious book questioning how dinosaurs eat their (human) food! I enjoyed how at the start of the book, it seemed like the dinosaurs were not good at eating their food with manners; there were a variety of silly illustrations depicting the dinosaurs eating. At the end it turned out that the dinosaurs actually had very nice manners and knew how to eat without making a mess. I am excited to read this book during story time, I expect a lot of giggles from the children! TO READ: During Toddler Ti [...]

      This is such a great book for both in and out of the classroom that goes over what not to do and what to do when eating - how there are manners and what is expected. The kids love seeing all the "bad" ways to do something and coming up with ways that they should do it instead. It's a great reminder of good manners and how to act.

      Confession time: This is actually my favorite book in this series. I've been using it in storytimes about dinosaurs for years, and picking it up again in order to read it to my homeschooling kids was fun. The kids liked it, too, although I think they thought that the badly behaved dinosaurs were the ones they want to emulate! lol

    12. Rae B. on said:

      This edition of the unofficial dinosaur series follows the same format as the others, so it is easy to read and my preschooler knows what to expect. She thoroughly enjoys shaking her head "no" in response to the silly albeit rhetorical questions in the first half.

    13. Caitlin Wilson on said:

      review: This book helps children with eating their food because every child has had trouble some point in their life. Just like children the Dinosaur has a hard time learning manners as well, but learn from mom and dad the manners.

    14. Carlee Freeman on said:

      This book teaches kids about dinosaurs AND manners! Great for boys who love dinosaurs and could use a little more help on manners! Each page has a different dinosaur and somewhere on the picture, it tells you what kind of dinosaur it is! Also great for beginning readers!

    15. Erik on said:

      Fun way to teach kids proper table manners. Rhymes well and the dinosaurs really pop off the page.

      This story book teaches kids how to eat their food at the dinner table politely while also having fun and incorporating dinosaurs.

    17. Sarah Wiwchar on said:

      Really love these dinosaur books. They are great for beginner readers as "read-to-self" books and also for teaching things, such as table manners in this one.

      Quick read, good for teaching manners, repetitivefrom Schaeffers

      Probably our favorite of the series. Especially, "DOES A DINOSAUR GLARE?"

    20. Inara on said:

      Love that the names of the different dinosaurs' names are located somewhere on the page.

    21. Brandy T on said:

      Love!Manners and not being picky are dinosaurs extinct they were so smart :)

    22. Rosa Cline on said:

      These 'how do Dinosaurs' books are really neat way of teaching children manners. And on each page in smaller letters if the child looks each page tells what type of dinosaur each page illustration is.

      I have a four-year old son and as most parents of a child that age can sympathize with, getting him to eat his food, especially the food he doesn't like, let alone the food he DOES like, can be a hard task. In fact, it just might often feel like battling a dinosaur. Jane Yolen and Mark Teague must have had this eternal battle in mind when they added this book to their series of How Do Dinosaurs do things.How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food? teaches good table manners by first listing things that sho [...]

      1. Rhyming2. This is a funny story about manners. The author uses dinosaurs, instead of people, to display the do's and dont's when eating food. 3. A. I want to comment on the lightheartedness of this book. Manners are an important topic with children, but the author and illustrator did a wonderful job making bad manners look "silly". The rhyming makes the story an easy listen, and the illustrations are comical. The dinosaurs are labeled on each page, and children may find that entertaining as w [...]

      Summary: Describes how a dinosaur eats, with no rude noises and while sitting very still.A great read for preschoolers. This is one of J's favorites right now (almost 4 years old). The illustrations make one laugh as we see a big dinosaur sitting at a table trying to eat some food (with mom or dad close by). Text and pictures first show the dinosaur doing things he is not supposed to be doing while eating (pretty funny!) and then half way through the text show what they are supposed to be doing. [...]
