With more than 14 million books in print, the How Do Dinosaurs... series is a huge hit all over the world.

Humorous paintings of oversized dinosaurs with human parents make this an irresistible book for sharing. And we all know that when parents are ready to say good night, it turns out that sometimes little dinosaurs have other ideas!

Laugh and smile as the dinosaurs try everything to avoid bedtime -- from hiding under the bed, to screaming no! -- and then snuggle in as all the dinosaurs show they really know the right way to go to sleep -- a bath, a story, and a good-night kiss!

Brimming with humor and the familiar antics of this beloved series, here is a playful bedtime board book for every sleepy little dinosaur.

Similar to Janet Yolen and Mark Teague’s original book in this series, HOW DO DINOSAURS GO TO SLEEP is awesome from the outset. The first page shows the image of a large pachyrhinosaurus trying to hide from bedtime by crawling under his bed while an angry mom looks on. As the story progresses, other dinosaurs find new ways to try to avoid going to sleep—and Mark Teague’s illustrations are pure fun. The second half of the book depicts dinosaurs modeling good bedtime behavior, and drawings like those showing a saurolophus scrubbing his rubber ducky at bath time and a majungasaurus preparing his preposterously small toothbrush are sure to bring a smile.

Putting little ones to bed can be a challenge, so books that are both brief AND entertaining for parents and children alike are a blessing. Yolen and Teague are tremendously talented, and this is a book that should be added to every toddler’s bookshelf and incorporated into bedtime routines.
