Feed Me Books!


How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You?
My son and I adore these "How do Dinosaurs..." books. One Christmas Jackson recieved a small stuffed dinosaur and this book from a family friend:
How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?
 The first night I read it with Jackson we were howling! The book asks how a dinosaur says good night and then asks if he does a series of "naughty" nighttime behaviors (ex: slamming his tail and pouting, swinging his neck from side to side). We were laughing because a lot of the things the dinosaur shouldn't be doing is what Jackson was currently doing at bedtime! I was able to say, "That dinosaur sounds like someone I know!" At the end, though, the book reviews how a dinosaur should say good night and this is where our little ritual began. When the dinosaur gives a big kiss, we give each other a kiss. When he turns out the light, we turn out the light. When the dinosaur whispers "Good Night", we whisper "Good night". When the....well, you get the picture. I can't say that this book solved all of our bedtime issues, but it certainly didn't hurt. This was the first book he memorized and would act very proud when he was able to "read" it to others. 

I was thrilled when I discovered that this book was part of a series. The series is great for emerging readers as it rhymes throughout and offers a lot of sight words that my son needs to know in Kindergarten. 

I was even more thrilled when I found this book: 
 How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food?
It centers more on general table manners than picky eating, but it is still super cute! 

And for Valentines Day, we will be reading (for the gazillionth time) Jackson's favorite Christmas present from mommy: 
How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You? 
There are many more in this series for just about anything you can think of: going to school, making friends, learning letters and numbers, etc. Check them out; you and your dinosaur are sure to love them!



This post is part of a series that I have been following the last few weeks from The Adventures of Motherhood called: Feed Me Books Friday. I love this idea as it is a way to get reviews for books from mothers who are reading them to their kids.

  10. I too love the how do dinosaurs . . . range - found it when I was child-minding a dinosaur obsessed little boy - oh valuable those books can be.

    I linked up to Janna too though I think my choices were a little girly!
