A , 100 stars Rhyming lines, big colorful illustrations, dinosaurs WITH FEATHERS , pro literacy message, information for parents in the back about how to start sounding out words The question format e.g does a dinosaur lose her temper and throw books at the cat had all of my kids in storytime shouting NO on every page, which they loved. This is a very short book that s all about reading It s a great book to read at bedtme, especially with younger children It is too young for our girls, so I just read it myself while waiting for a flight Nice addition to the series. Wasn t as good as I was hoping Just how does a dinosaur learn to read Yolen explores this question with delightful speculation and ultimately teaches you what you should and shouldn t do while reading.What I thought I love Yolen s Dinosaur series, but as a librarian, I am especially fond of this title Yolen s lyrical prose is wonderful The book is almost a song Teague s illustrations are deliciously realistic These are not cartoon dinosaurs, but real dinosaurs. Jane Yolen and Mark Teague are at it again They ve created dinosaur magic with their latest storybook,How Do Dinosaurs Learn to ReadThis book follows the same formula as the books that preceded it in their beloved dinosaur series At first, the dinos exhibit silly, laughable misdeeds as the author imagines the many things they could but shouldn t do Then, there is a shift and the author shows readers the good and proper behaviors that the dinos are actually exhibiting This formula is genius because it subtly shows children how to act by exampleI love it InHow Do Dinosaurs Learn to Readyoung readers will eagerly flip through the pages to see how their dino friends read books then they ll likely be motivated to read as the dinos do This book would make a perfect readaloud at the beginning of the school year for preschoolers and kindergartners when young minds are at their best and ready to learn new skills. My children and I love these books by Jane Yolen They find it hilarious that the dinosaurs are just like normal kids with human parents Never a dull read This Extremely Little Short Book Only Pages Is Written In The Same Style As Jane Yolen Mark Teague S Other Dinosaur Book Collaborations Together, Such As HOW DO DINOSAURS SAY GOOD NIGHT And HOW DO DINOSAURS GET WELL SOON The Book Was Created As A Promotional Item To Teach Kids To Have Good Reading Habits And To Respect Books The Illustrations Are Lively And The Rhyming Text Delivers The Message Well As Short As It Is, This Could Be One Book That Parents Might Not Mind Reading Over And Overreviewer Tvtv This creative team clearly loves dinosaurs, and those illustrations perfectly depict them in all their unique glory As they have done in their earlier books, the author and illustrator tackle the challenges of learning to read It s certainly not something that always happens easily, and the text and images depict some of the struggles and frustrations as well as serving as a primer for how to treat books until eventually, as is clear here, books become a child s best friend Back matter includes tips about reading aloud and learning letter sounds and rhyming words As readers come to the end of the book, they just might feel reassured that if dinosaurs can learn to read and start to love to read, then maybe, just maybe, they can too This encouraging message about literacy made me smile even with all those dinosaur antics. I love the way that this book teaches students good reading habits Sometimes it can be hard to get students into the habit of practicing good reading habits, so I would read this book to younger students to help them develop those habits Reading out loud, sounding out words, and not giving up are really important skills for young readers to master and a lot of them will need help when it comes to reading and understand the content I would read this book out loud to the class and then ask them to come up with some good reading habits that we can all use when we are reading I would most likely use this book in kindergarten and first grade classrooms, because those are the grades where reading is first starting to develop and it is the most important to instill those good habits. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through my district library services I was absolutely delighted to find this book, and I can t wait to share it with my students I was surprised when I came to add it to my Goodreads list that it has been in print since 2003 How did I never see it before Anyway, like all the How Do books, the Yolen walks us through some not so good behaviors, then through some positive behaviors This book is a little different because it is followed by a little back matter advising parents how to help their kids read As always, Teague s illustrations are adorable, the rhyming text is fun, and it provides opportunity for discussion.
