School Library Journal - 10/01/2021 PreS-Gr 1—In their latest collaboration in the "How Do Dinosaurs?" series, Yolen and Teague continue to help youngsters handle difficult situations with humor, practical advice, simple quatrains, and fabulous dinosaurs! Like many children, dinosaurs might have trouble saying goodbye when they have to part with a loved one, and they may throw tantrums, shake their massive heads, write notes (sometimes on walls!), and hide in bathrooms or bedrooms to avoid the inevitable. But with hugs from family, even dinosaurs can learn to express their feelings, and to say goodbye with kisses and love. The gargantuan creatures are amusingly depicted in familiar situations, so even though they may be sad or angry, their over-the-top antics and the reactions of their human counterparts make their problems humorous rather than traumatic. Dinosaur aficionados will love Teague's colorful reptiles, who stretch across two pages, dwarfing their human settings, and will appreciate that each dino is identified on endpapers and in tiny print where they first appear in the story. VERDICT Fans of any of the previous entries will rejoice at this new addition, which uses exaggeration and humor to help children acknowledge and deal with their dinosaur-sized emotions.—MaryAnn Karre, Binghamton, NY - Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
