PreS-A series of books featuring bright ``baby'' dinosaurs in the garden, on vacation, at home, and at a playgroup. These are ``naming'' books- each page shows an activity or an object, related to the respective title's theme. For the most part, the activities are depicted in somewhat random fashion, without a clear sense of progression or visual surprise. In At Home, a series of pictures shows different dinosaurs holding an alarm clock, talking on the telephone, and holding crayons (with no paper in sight). While the books are colorful, the stylized watercolor-and-pen art is not particularly expressive or distinctive. Haddon has relied too heavily on the general appeal of dinosaurs to carry the books. These are, at best, additional choices for large collections.-Linda Wicher, Highland Park Public Library, IL
Copyright 1994 Cahners Business Information, Inc.From Publishers Weekly:
Apparently subscribing to the theory that kids are never too young for their first exposure to these beloved behemoths, Haddon offers a cheerful and straightforward quartet of dinosaur board-books. His engaging spins on the identification of familiar objects portray smiling, vividly hued dinos posed one per--equally vivid--page, munching an apple or gathering flowers ( Garden ), painting or working with modeling clay ( Playgroup ), etc. While most of the dinosaurs are easily recognized by their characteristic horns, spiny backbones and frilly ``collars,'' a couple of specimens seem generic. The presentation is simplistic, but then there's ample time to grow into Dinotopia and the rest. Ages 1-3.
