Love this series of books. Nothing horrible in any of them, since kids are growing and learning. It is normal to have conflicting feelings-nothing "horrible" about that.
Kids get frustrated, angry and sad. Deal with it.

The dinosaurs show behaviours that all kids show at some point - whether rudeness or insolence or more. I like that the author poses the situations which are relatable for my 3-year-old, and then resolves them at the end of the book. I also appreciated that the moms and dads love their dinosaurs regardless of their behaviour (though it doesn't make the behaviour acceptable!).

As usual, the art is fantastic and colourful. The rhymes roll along easily. The text doesn't get old as you read it again and again.

I started reading this before reading it to my 2 and 3 year olds. I'm glad I did no read it to them! Why would I want to read such horrible things to put ideas into my child's head?!
I love the other dinosaurs books (dinner, goodnight) but this one went very wrong...

Great read from the series. My son sighed at the end and said, "I love you mom". Good dinosaur.
