In a delightful and needed story for young children, Yolen's newest dinosaur book combines children's fascination with dinosaurs with the discomfort, even fear, that often comes with being sick, going to the doctor, and taking medicine. As narrator, she adds the perfect voice--soothing and calm tones, with just the right inflection in the questions and a touch of humor. In addition, she reads slowly enough for kids to read along, but without dragging. Add Teague's bright, wonderful illustrations, soft sound effects, and page-turning signals that blend right in (or not, for faster readers)--and you have an audiobook whose whole is truly greater than the sum of its parts. Superlative! W.L.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
