Mouse's Corner: Dinosaurs Love Underpants by Claire Freedman & Ben Cort



Dinosaurs Love Underpants by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort
Aladdin, 2009
Fiction (Children's); 32 pgs

If you have ever wondered why dinosaurs disappeared, here's the book for you.  It offers one version of their demise, anyway.  Dinosaurs Love Underpants is my daughter's new favorite book.  She has the most fun picking out which underwear should go to mommy and daddy and grandma (saving all the pink ones for herself) at the end of the book.  

The illustrations are colorful and fun.  I love the details in each drawing.  The writing is creative and lyrical, rhyming and flowing.  It's a cute story, even if a little sad (only to me, I'm sure, who thinks the end of the dinosaurs isn't really a happy occasion).  I like that each page has much in the way to see--Mouse can count the cavemen or dinosaurs on a page or can show me which children are sad and which are happy.  Plus, all the colorful underpants are cool.

  1. Hey at this age, with potty training and the like, it is all about the underwear! It was THE NUMBER ONE INCENTIVE for my daughter to give it her best try...the Barbie panties.

    1. Sandy - Very true! My daughter loves wearing "big girl" underwear, but I'm afraid it wasn't enough to motivate her right off the bat.

    1. Andi - I think Greyson would like it. The different underwear are quite creative. Haha!

  3. Ok, I must get this book. Gage is still fighting the potty, even though he's chosen Thomas underwear. He will go, but only if we initiate it. Annoying! I must bring out the dinosaurs :)

  4. Stacy - It is such a fun book! I hadn't thought of using it for potty training, but that makes sense with all the different underwear.
