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.

And Teague upholds his end of the bargain, carefully attending to the authenticity of the dinosaurs on display, and providing a diversity of human families as well. A solid, welcome addition to the series." -- Booklist
