Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Dinosaur is starting preschool today. ROAR! There are new friends to meet, dress-up outfits to wear, glitter and googly eyes to paste, musical instruments to play, and snacks to eat. What's not to like? But then, oh, no! It's Dinosaur vs. Clean-up Time! Fortunately, when friends work together, EVERYONE WINS! With all the bright colors, bold lines, and toddler-like exuberance that have made the previous Dinosaur vs. books irresistible, DINOSAUR VS. SCHOOL will both amuse and reassure anyone going off to school for the first time.

Fearless Dinosaur takes on new challenges as he starts preschool, from meeting new friends to pasting glitter and googly eyes, but one task requires assistance from everyone.

Horn Book Review

"Roar! Roar! Roar!" The diminutive red dinosaur (Dinosaur vs. Bedtime, rev. 9/08) faces its newest foe: the American education system. The new kindergartner (or preschooler; could be either) romps and stomps its way through the school day, making new friends (a fox, cat, pig, horse, anda fluffy cloud), playing dress-up, creating "monkey snacks," and more: "Dinosaur versusmaking music!" As kids familiar with this series can anticipate, in each case "Dinosaur wins!" The fun comes to a halt at clean-up time: "OH, NO! It's too much for one dinosaur!" But there's a valuable little-kid lesson to be learned: "When everyone helpsEVERYONE WINS!" The mixed-media illustrations contain lots of color and motion, with real-life objects incorporated thoughtfully and humorously into the digital collage (there are real raisins spilling out of the illustrated raisin box, and check out all those googly eyes on the arts-and-crafts page). Monster Buddy and his rabbit pals (from Buddy and the Bunnies in: Don't Play with Your Food!, rev. 1/14) make a cameo appearance on Dinosaur's lunchbox, but nothing beats that happy little cloud cheerfully playing the accordion during music time. elissa gershowitz (c) Copyright 2014.
