How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Dogs?


How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Dogs? by Jane Yolen. Illustrated by Mark Teague. 2010. [January 2010]. Scholastic. 6 pages.

Yesterday I reviewed How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Cats? Today I bring you my review of How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Dogs? Both books are part of a larger series. (Other titles, for example, include How Do Dinosaurs Play With Their Friends, How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You, How Do Dinosaurs Learn Their Colors, How Do Dinosaurs Clean Their Rooms, etc.)

Here's how this one starts,

How does a dinosaur
keep his dog clean?
Does he scrub it too hard?
Does he act really mean?

Does he often forget to leave
food in its bowl?
Does he dig up the bones from
the dog's hidey-hole?
Like the previous book, this one uses questions to build a framework for comparing and contrasting appropriate behavior. Readers learn how they should and shouldn't be treating their dogs.
