Maddie loves dinosaurs and I love books about holidays that we don t personally celebrate, but her friends and classmates might. The How Do Dinosaurs series is wonderful The illustrations are so beautifully done, each dinosaur is bright, colorful and the expressions on their faces are brilliant I love this entire series and it is popular at the library where I work The stories all start with questions about a dinosaurs behavior whether is it in the classroom, at the doctor s office, or in this case, celebrating the holidays The dinosaur shows off a handful of ways to do things wrong followed by the answer no a The How Do Dinosaurs series is wonderful The illustrations are so beautifully done, each dinosaur is bright, colorful and the expressions on their faces are brilliant I love this entire series and it is popular at the library where I work The stories all start with questions about a dinosaurs behavior whether is it in the classroom, at the doctor s office, or in this case, celebrating the holidays The dinosaur shows off a handful of ways to do things wrong followed by the answer no and a list of the correct ways the dinosaur behaves These stories are cute, funny and engaging I absolutely adore Jane Yolen s work A Hanukah picture book, which aren t all that common, yes, with dinosaurs. A child ran off with this book after story time I think it was a hit. I love Yolen s How do Dinosaurs series While, I was surprised to find my own culture represented, I was evendelighted by the page with the Ankylosaurus I definitely remember the strict talking to we all got about the importance of not blowing out the candles at Chaunkah or Shabbat This page alone fondly summarizes my childhood memories of my family s traditions All young children are a little cheeky and it s fun to remember those moments amidst the solemnity of the holiday. Thanks Jane Yolen for having books about celebrating Christmas and books about celebrating Chanukah We love celebrating both holy days And your books add to the celebration A great book with some ideas on how to celebrate Chanukah and how not to celebrate Chanukah Talking points What are your favorite things about Chanukah Is there anything you would add to the way you celebrate it I was unfamiliar with this series but luckily it was on display at the library right when I was looking for books about Hanukkah and for books about dinosaurs, so this seemed perfect I wasn t a huge fan of the format of going through everything NOT to do, but otherwise I liked this book and it was a hit with my 4 year old and guests. This is a series that has been around for a while Why, because it has staying power Each book takes a topic, and uses asked questions to illustrate what not to do, and then follows up with modeled good behavior And all done around dinosaurs as children. With thanmillion books in print, America s favorite dinosaurs can t wait to celebrate Chanukah From the warm glow of holiday candles in the menorah to the fun of family gatherings, little dinosaurs love to celebrate the Festival of Lights But sometimes the excitement of Chanukah, its treasured rituals, and the tradition of gifts can tempt a youngster to misbehave Come along on a joyful romp filled with tumbling dreidels and melting gelt as America s favorite prehistoric pals spread a little mischief this season Children will laugh out loud as dinosaurs fidget, fuss, and stomp through every occasion, while their human parents shift from shock to weary patienceFilled with warmth and cheer, this new book by the bestselling team of Jane Yolen and Mark Teague makes a perfect gift to be read again and again, year after year How do dinosaurs say Happy Chanukah The same way they say Merry Christmas With an abundance of love, joy, memory, and gratitude This was a much appreciated holiday edition of Yolen and Teague s popular series I read it to the kids at reading time, and I m hoping that it was a fun way to learn about a holiday that doesn t get a lot of notice this season.
