My kids really enjoyed this book and the correlation wasn't lost on
them as they flashed their "big and sharp" teeth. They identified
with Little Dino's impulses and quickly related their own stories
of prey. This short read opened up a good discussion about why
biting, and especially biting people, is bad.-- "Small Strides

Mr. Record's illustrations do a great job of reinforcing the author's message...keep those teeth to yourself!-- "Enchanting Children's Book Reviews blog"
Part of the Hello Genius line, this story stars a green dinosaur in a graphic T-shirt and glasses whose "teeth are big and sharp" and good for one thing--biting. "Don't bite your toys! Don't bite your chair!" shouts Dahl's text, as Record's crisply rendered Little Dino does just that. The overall goal is more about humor and entertainment than behavioral encouragement, though human mothers will still appreciate the multiple reminders that say "Don't bite your mom!" Simultaneously available: Little Dinos Don't Hit, Little Dinos Don't Push, and Little Dinos Don't Yell.-- "Publishers Weekly"
