Dino Love II: How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Dogs? by Jane Yolen
DOES HE OFTEN FORGET TO TAKE IT OUTSIDE?
DOES HE JUMP ON ITS BACK FOR A PIGGY-BACK RIDE?
Little chasmosauruses, like little humans, often forget that their furry friends have needs and feelings, too, and Jane Yolen's and Mark Teague's new board book for the youngest pet owners, How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Dogs? (Blue Sky Press, 2010) somehow uses their familiar format to establish rapport with both the aggrieved pooches and with the misbehaving youngsters by modelling better behavior right away and by showing the pleasure it brings to their pets.
HE LOVES HIS DEAR DOG AND DOES EVERY CHORE.
It's a lucky pup who has a sympathetic stygionoloch, or an empathetic child, to love and care for him, and with this lovely little book in hand, any newbie dog owner should be well on his or her way to responsible pet care. A nice addition to this dino-mite series.
