Summary

Summary

Lovely stories capture the charms of Little Dinosaur's everyday world. Little Dinosaur was bigger than ants. So he was very careful not to step on any. But he was so much bigger, he didn't mind if any stepped on him. Little Dinosaur is busy from the moment he opens his eyes until he buttons his pajamas and tumbles into bed. He paints pictures of the clouds in the sky, plays card tricks, and has great sea battles in the bathtub. When bedtime finally comes, he is ready to put on his nighttime cap and enter the world of dreams.Beautifully simple stories and charming illustrations capture Little Dinosaur's world - the imaginative world of every toddler.


Author Notes

Mike Thaler was born in Los Angeles, California in 1936. He started his professional career drawing cartoons for adults. A children's book editor saw one of these cartoons and encouraged Mike to try his hand at writing for children. His first attempt met with success, and The Magic Boy was published in 1961.

The creator of the Letterman from PBS's Electric Company series, Mike Thaler has published over 130 children's books and is known by his fans as the Riddle King.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-These 13 very easy stories about Little Dinosaur's day from sunup to sundown have charm but are not particularly well served by predictable illustrations. Some tales are simple and straightforward ("Morning") and some have a little joke ("The Trick"). While Miglio's watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations provide a pleasant accompaniment to the tales, they lack the appeal of Dav Pilkey's ineffably appealing dragon in Dragon's Merry Christmas (Orchard, 1991) and others. Purchase multiple copies of those titles instead.-Ann Cook, formerly at Winter Park Public Library, FL (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
