DINOSNORES is another absolutely charming and delightfully ridiculous board book from Sandra Boynton. Here, the dinosaurs get ready for bed, fall asleep in a heap, and then snore very loudly. The book concludes with a rabbit saying s/he is so glad the dinosnores live far, far away.

What I loved: Every bit of this book is charming from the cartoonish and brightly colored animals to the artistic and large text. The text-to-image ratio is perfect, and the font is large and clear, making this so easy to read aloud. The board book pages make this easy to turn pages for young fingers. The colors, characters, and possibility to really get into the sounds of snoring have high appeal for infants and toddlers, who will easily fall in love with these dinosnores. I also really love that the dinosaurs brush their teeth and wash their faces when getting ready for bed, as it is always great to have healthy habits modeled for the little ones. Be prepared to snore and giggle through this new classic.

Final verdict: Absolutely delightful from images to text to story, DINOSNORES is a new favorite for our toddler. Highly recommend for children who love to laugh and parents who can get into reading some snores!
