How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Dogs? How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Cats?
“How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Cats”
by Jane Yolen
illustrated by Mark Teague
Colorful dinosaurs demonstrate both the wrong way and the right way to treat pets.
The book on dogs includes feeding, bath time, and potential rough housing all accompanied by the fabulously colored dinosaurs that are the hallmark of this amazing series by Yolen and Teague. The book on cats includes play, litter boxes and possible toys.
While a lecture on these topics by parents would be tedious and boring, Yolen’s fast paced text and Teague’s playful illustrations make it fun.
Reader will meet not only well known dinosaurs like the familiar iguanodon and parasaurolophus, but they will also encounter exotic specimens ranging from the caudipteryx to the tsintausaurus. Relax! Dino names appear below the appropriate illustrations for readers young and old who can’t tell their chasmosaurus from their silvisaurus.
Animal lovers and dinosaurs lovers alike will be willing to curl up for some serious book time with these two additions to the “How Do Dinosaurs” books. An excellent choice for a Halloween treat or a Christmas stocking or any moment of fun reading time in between.
