School Library Journal - 01/01/2016 PreS-Gr 1—The latest addition to the series does not disappoint with this friendship-based tale. Like Yolen's other "How Do Dinosaurs…" series titles, this picture book features comical rhyming, dinosaur identification, and a great moral lesson. The book starts by listing naughty deeds a dinosaur might commit, such as "Does he tear up a book that his friend let him take? Does he throw his friend's lunch box straight into the lake?" Halfway through the book, the line "No…a dinosaur doesn't. He won't even try." sets the tone for the remainder of the picture book. By listing good deeds a dinosaur does for his friends, even if they're fighting, Yolen provides a great takeaway message for preschoolers everywhere. Teague's oversize and colorful illustrations are a delight as always, and the dinosaur's facial expressions are a clear winner in this latest title. VERDICT Perfect for storytimes and one-on-one reading.—Brooke Newberry, La Crosse Public Library, WI - Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
