My 3yr. old son loves dinosaurs and we were having a hard time to get him to clean up after he made messes in his room. I read him this book and he loved it and understood what to do right away! He's had this book for a while, but it's one of his favorites, he'll grab it and ask me to read it at least twice a week.

This book teaches children the importance of keeping one's room tidy by pretending the children are dinosaurs. The pictures are humorous as they start out by making messes but in the end keep everything nice and clean. This is a great book because in addition to it be funny and cute, it actually promotes a good life skill--organization. I love how the dinosaurs are absolutely monstrous in size but are doing things that one would normally see a child doing.

This is a very encouraging book for everyone. The special writings of Max Lucado's newest book, Max On Life, offer Bible-based responses to many questions we have in our own life. Questions about disciplining kids, special needs children, struggling marriages, sex, work and finances. The one hundred fifty questions are conveniently indexed by topic and scripture to allow quick access as a reference resource. If you are looking for someone who is in your corner no matter how you perform, I think meditating on the answers in this book will reveal the Father's heart for hikers and bikers, and the cowboys and rednecks because God loves all people. Look around and ask God to show you his beautiful work of diversity all around you. His grace will give you rest and answers to some of your hard questions tugging on your heart. 5 * book and special gift book!

We¿ve got a three-peat rule at our house: we won¿t read the same kid book more than three times in a row. With How do Dinosaurs Clean Their Rooms? we¿re invoking the rule all the time. It¿s no wonder. The rhymes are catchy; the pictures whimsical; the examples of how not to clean hilariously realistic. It would be perfect if only it were a bit more gender inclusive. (Every dinosaur is different, and so are the parents. Would it kill Yolen to throw in a ¿she¿ now and then?) I know dinosaurs are traditionally a guy thing, but it¿s my 2-year-old daughter who is on a dinosaur kick at the moment, and whenever I read this to her, the pronouns jar me.Still, great book. Fun for her and fun for me. It¿s not quite enough to tempt me to make an exception to the three-peat rule, but it¿s close.

We are huge fans of all Yolen's/Teague's dinosaur books!Great illustrations, very cute and humorous characters, and not many words on each page. Rhyming verse which also makes them good picks for new readers. Great for practicing punctuation ("?")

How does a dinosaur clean up his room? "Does he stick all his teddy bears under his bed, or shove them all into his closet instead?" Maybe my kids do, but not these tidy little dinosaurs! Told in charming rhyme, How Do Dinosaurs Clean Their Rooms first shows kids what not to do, and then shows them what they should do to clean up properly. As with the rest of the "How Do Dinosaurs..." series, the illustrations are terrific. The names of the dinosaurs are included on every page, for those budding scientists who wish to know what they are called. The antics of these lovable reptiles will keep children giggling and wanting to read it again, and again, and again... My children ages five and eight really like this book. I like it too because it's a fun way to teach kids how to clean up. It's a great addition to any child's library. I highly recommend it.

Firstly, I showed my son the movie 'Jurassic Park,' then secondly, I read him this book, and then I explained the contrast between bad and sloppy dinosaurs as opposed to good and cleanly dinosaurs. Now my son cleans up one mess before he begins another, and believe me, every day there is a mess, but it gets cleaned up.
