Dinosnores is sure to become a perennial favorite with tots, along with Boynton’s other soothing bedtime stories.”

In Dinosnores, Sandra Boynton has written yet another book that’s sure to enchant her readers.  It joins her other perennially popular bedtime stories, including The Going-to-Bed Book, Silly Lullaby, Pajama Time, and Snoozers: 7 Short Short Bedtime Stories for Lively Little Kids. While soothing, each of these tales also have unexpected twists to delight young readers and listeners over and over again.

Dinosnores, begins with a calming, rhythmic description of the bedtime rituals of dinosaurs. Curiously, their routine has a remarkable resemblance to what humans do when we prepare for bed.

But unlike the baby to four-year-old set, once these dinosaurs fall asleep, they snore. Their snores aren’t just cute little snuffles and wheezes. No! They snore making loud dinosaur noises that are resounding “HONK SHOOOOO0s.” “The snoring goes on and on through the night. They never stop snoring till the first morning light.”

Dinosnores is sure to become a perennial nighttime favorite for tots, along with Boynton’s other soothing bedtime stories. It is a good fit with the select group of go-to-sleep book classics such as Margaret Wise Brown’s Good Night Moon, Dr. Seuss’s Sleep Book, and Mem Fox’s Time for Bed.
