Description

With methods of eating and manners that are probably all too familiar to children and adults, these mischievous dinosaurs show in a big way that burping, spilling, playing with one's food and outright refusing to eat are not the best ways to enjoy a meal. An entertaining guide to table manners and a good reminder that positive and pleasant mealtime behavior gets the best results.

    Genre: This story is a fantasy. This story was about how dinosaurs eat at the dinner table and how they are messy (in the end they are not though). This makes a good example for a fantasy because in reality dinosaurs do not exist or even eat at a dinner table. There is however messy eaters in this world and that is what the story is about.Age: primaryMedia: PastelUse: 1. Use as a lead into manners in the lunch room 2. Use in a unit on dinosaurs (this book tells you all the types of dinosaurs)

    This was a good short story to me. It talk about the dinosaur in the story was not nice and mannerable at first and really didn't have much table manner. Throughout the story the dinosuar begin to learn table manners. I enjoyed looking at the pictures in the story.

    Summary: How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food starts off asking if dinosaurs belch and burp or throw their food. The first half shows the dinosaurs being naughty and rude but goes on the say that NO dinosaurs have great table manners and say please and thank you.Personal Reaction: This is a great book to discuss how to eat and have manners. The pictures are very colorful and funny. I enjoyed this book and it made me laugh.Classroom Ideas: All children need good manners and this would be a great book to read before snack time and have the students practice good manners at the table.

    How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food is a book illustrating bad table manners by dinosaurs, before saying that no, dinosaurs do not do these things, they actually have very good table manners.The illustrations are very funny and all children will love this book. Very colorful.

    It's a silly book and at the first bit is what dinosaurs don't do to eat their food but at the end it tells you what dinosaurs do to eat their food. They eat their food a bit like people do. At the beginning they are naughty and afterwards they are sensible.
