Author and narrator Jane Yolen brings another of her dinosaur escapades to life. Young listeners may be shocked or perplexed as dinosaurs mistreat books by chewing them, tossing them, and jumping on them but then will be treated to demonstrations of proper book care and the joy of sounding out words and making sense of them. At bedtime, Yolen's spot-on characterization shines as a child dinosaur plaintively asks to read one more book and a parent dinosaur assures the child there will be more time to read in the morning. Accompanying sound effects and music are attuned to both the text. The production concludes with the author talking about how reading aloud can encourage "little dinosaurs" to become readers, and modeling letter and sound recognition activities.
