About the Author:

Kelly DiPucchio is the author of numerous children's books, including the New York Times bestselling Grace for President. She also wrote Dinosnores, What's the Magic Word?, and Bed Hogs. Kelly lives in southeastern Michigan with her husband and three children.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–The dinosaurs are getting ready for bed, making all the necessary preparations: "They bathed, and brushed, and fluffed their ferns/around the dino site.../then laid their horns and spikes to rest/and kissed their eggs goodnight." Once cuddled under their various quilts and blankets, they all begin to snore. There are "bronto-booms, tricera-cries, raptor-rumbles, stego-sighs," etc. The noise becomes so raucous that it causes tumultuous seas and volcanic eruptions, and eventually the continent splits in two and drifts apart. The verse flows smoothly and contains some clever wordplay, but it is Goembel's art that steals the show. All of the necessary plates, spikes, and horns are there, but these brightly colored dinos are downright endearing as they curl up on pillows festooned with teddy bears or ducks, a claw or two thrown protectively over a sleeping baby. The detailed acrylic paintings are rich in texture but have clean, crisp lines that are pleasing to the eye. Pair this with Jane Yolen's How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? (Scholastic, 2000) for a dino-mite storytime.–Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ
