School Library Journal - 11/01/2021 PreS-Gr 2—Fenske's creative, joyful book, showcases all the struggles of putting an active youngster to bed. In the bath, the child transforms into the dinosaur he was once playing with on the floor; throughout the story, the pictures illustrate the dinosaur that the child has become in his mind. As the child of color moves from one piece of clothing to another, the images detail his need to think outside the box to find bedtime clothing for his large dinosaur size. The pictures pair perfectly with the child having fun while getting bedtime directives from Mommasaurus. Facial expressions of wonder and happiness depict a child deep in an imaginative world using everyday items to dress the dinosaur for bedtime. Caregivers may use this book to teach kids the pieces of clothing they need to get dressed properly. VERDICT Fans of leveled readers will not be disappointed, from the jolliness of the character's speech, to the quality pictures of the dinosaur's t-shirt and bathrobe. Dinosaur vs. Bedtime by Bob Shea would pair perfectly with this book.—Tanya Haynes, Meyer Elem./Lamar CISD, Stafford, TX - Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
