How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah?

Normally, I would not be reviewing this book for the blog, but since I am building a library for a two month old boy, you will get a glimpse. How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah? by Jane Yolen and illustrated by Mark Teague is one of a long series of books by the pair examine how dinosaurs go to school, say goodnight, eat their food, get well soon and laugh out loud, just to name a few.

How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah

 How Do Dinosaurs say Happy Chanukah starts with the usual misbehaving dinosaur when mama comes in with the holiday lights, who snatches away dreidels so no one else plays, writes his name on every gift card and grabs up all the gelt. A reformed dinosaur finishes out the eight day celebration by sharing the dreidel, eating his latkes, helping with the dishes and giving  Bubbie and Zaida big Chanukah wishes. Kids who like the other books in this series will like this one too. The artwork is wonderful.

The Sonoma County Library has many copies.
