      Joe and Sally found some strange footprints in the kitchen floor, and all the evidence points to a hungry, heavy, dancing and swimming dinosaur. They have worked very hard building a perfect dinosaur trap. Will it work?Lovely story with lovely characters. They know the footprints were made by a dinosaur despite their father saying dinosaurs are extinct, and they are confident of being capable of catching it if they succeed in making the perfect trap. So when the unthinkable happens none of them [...]

      Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes I'm unable to resist a book about dinosaurs, at the same time, I also believe that the love for dinosaurs can not be taught too early. So, this picture book about two siblings looking for dinosaurs after they find mysterious tracks is right up my alley. It was a quick and cute read. There is some real mystery going on and the drawings are nice. I'm positive I would have really liked it as a child. Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me [...]

      Boo! I wrote a review and it went chasing that dinosaur because it's not here anymore. Both my son and I loved this mystery of Jurassic proportions. I was convince it was really a duck but, apparently, I shouldn't quit my day job for a life of super sleuthing. The artwork and the storyline were everything I was hoping for when I found this gem at the library. I think both boys and girls would love this.

      Review: NEVER FOLLOW A DINOSAURJoin an imaginative sister and brother who combine imagination and logic to track a dinosaur, using footprints, discerning size, shape, weight and pressure. This cooperative pair of siblings design and construct a "dinosaur trap." This is an illustrated story which will appeal to young readers and to the younger "read to me" set.

    5. Carla Johnson-Hicks on said:

      My grandson loves dinosaurs and we had fun reading this book together. He enjoyed looking at the pictures and guessing what the next description would be. The story follows a building sequence that would be excellent for vocabulary development as well as teaching about descriptive words and encouraging students to add adjectives and adverbs to their writing. The other thing that this book shows is how to draw conclusions and make inferences, something we are always trying to teach children. The [...]

      I love the children's deductions, and the mental picture of the dinosaur the build. And what a clever ending!Disclaimer: I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

      I (actually my roommate Jodi) picked this up for me at ALA2016. It is an unbound galley and I finally read it today. I thought it was really cute. When two siblings find what they believe are dinosaur tracks, they start following clues but periodically the footsteps change and each time they do, the siblings make up a plausible- to them - reason. When the tracks disappear, their parents tell them that they shouldn't be following hungry dinosaurs anyway. But the kids are more ingenious than that [...]

      A cute book! Woods seemed very interested in the small details of the lovely drawings. He lost interest before the book was over and asked for a different book. I'm not holding it against the book though. If he actually disliked it he wouldn't have let me get more than a page or two in. I wish we owned it in print because I think it would go over better with him. I'm also really unsure (because we got an e-book version) if this is a picture book, or an early reader book. We read it on my kindle [...]

      This one would be great for drawing conclusions or inferring.

      One afternoon, Joe and his sister Sally spot a strange set of footprints. After close examination, Joe is sure they are tracks from a small dinosaur. So what do children with imaginations do? Follow the tracks, of course. The footprints lead to their pet’s bowl: an empty bowl. So it must be a very hungry dinosaur the two conclude. They continue to follow the footprints into the yard and notice how deep the prints are. So it must be a heavy dinosaur. As they continue to follow prints they end u [...]

      This book is about two children, Sally and joe. They find a set of foot prints one day that were going through their house. So just like every kid they went into deceptive skills to see what they could find. They started to think that it could be a dinosaur! They pictured a lot of images in their head and pictures the dinosaur dancing and cooking and swimming! The kids had lots of laughs that day. This book would be a good book to show the children because imagination it a great piece of the min [...]

      This story is a cute read, involving characters, Sally, and Joe. Sally and Joe discover mysterious footprints all throughout their house that they think might be from a dinosaur. They go on journey to follow them to figure out what they really are from, even though their parents do not recommend them doing so. Joe and Sally make a trap to discover why the cat food keeps disappearing. This story is filled with humor that makes it very enjoyable to read.

    13. Dierdre on said:

      Siblings Sally and Joe are positive that the mysterious footprints they find belong to a dinosaur. An imaginative, quirky, cumulative story follows the siblings as they try to catch the mysterious creature, even after warnings from their mother about hungry dinosaurs. The trap they make to catch the creature was very inventive. Cute book for quirky dinosaur fans.

    14. Mollie B on said:

      this is a very fun, imaginative book! Sally and Joe imagine what kind of creature makes the footprints they decide to follow. The kids will love the repetition and exciting conclusion.

    15. Donna Mork on said:

      Cute story, repeats and adds to each line based on observation, funny.

    16. Hannah on said:

      Very hard to follow ending. I loved the reasoning that characters made to figure out what kind of animal made the footprints. But the ending left me scratching my head

    17. Alice on said:

      I liked the pictures and the reasoning and logic skills used in this book. But the ending left me wanting. "Dinosaurs are extinct and you shouldn't follow them anyway!" Thanks, Good advice!

      This silly themed picture book follows a brother and a sister as they track a dinosaur and imagine the dinosaurs day by what its footprints. preschool and up for humor.

      Joe and Sally find dinosaur tracks and try to deduce what is going on--when the tracks are deep, they realize it must be a heavy dinosaur; when there is a pile of leaves on the tracks, they decide the dinosaur must have hit his head on an overhanging branch, etc. When the tracks just mysteriously end, they can't figure out how the dinosaur just disappeared--so they decide to set a trap. But will they catch their quarryor will he catch them?Really fun book. The illustrations are cute and engaging [...]

      I was really expecting a different ending. (view spoiler)[I totally thought it was going to turn out to be a duck instead of a dinosaur. (hide spoiler)]Note: I accessed digital review copies of this book through Edelweiss and NetGalley.

      When my father was young, he and his younger brother wanted to see a bear. So, they left a trail of honey down into their campsite and sat with a piles of stones. Sure enough, down came the bear. Unfortunately, the bear didn’t want to leave when they threw stones at it and it’s only due to a great deal of luck that I’m even here at all. I feel as though Joe and Sally, the main characters in this book, stumbled upon the same strain of luck in their dinosaur hunting, but do it with such swee [...]

      Logic, Reasoning, Silliness, and Imagination, September 22, 2016 O.K it's pretty goofy around the edges, and the ending veers off the tracks a little, (not in a bad way, just in an unexpected way), but this book packs in a lot of good stuff in a few, (32), pages.The setup is that Sally and Joe spot a set of strange footprints. They wonder what made them and decide to follow the trail of prints. At each two page spread they find another clue, and with each clue they try to deduce what it is they [...]

      "One afternoon, Joe and his sister Sally spotted a strange set of footprints."Joe hypothesizes that, due to the shape and size, it must be a dinosaur. As they follow the prints, things change and they theorize what has happened. For example, the footprints walk up to the cat's bowl. The bowl is empty so, obviously, it is a hungry dinosaur. When the prints march through the fish pond, it is a swimming dinosaur. The illustrations of the dino change to accommodate their thoughts. When the footprint [...]

      Latimer, Alex Never Follow a Dinosaur, PICTUREBOOK. Peachtree, 2016. $16.95. When Joe and Sally spot a strange set of footprints, they decide that it must be a dinosaur. They add up the “clues” and decide what kind of dinosaur it is. But when the footsteps suddenly disappear, they set a trap to catch it the next day. Their parents tell them it must be something else, and when their trap is empty they don’t know what to think, until the Dinosaur shows up and flies away with them. I liked ho [...]

      I received a free ecopy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. When Sally and Joe find a mysterious set of footprints, they are certain that they belong to a dinosaur. They follow the footprints and speculate what kind of dinosaur it is, what it likes to do, and what happened to it. When the footprints disappear with no dinosaur in sight they decide to set a trap! This is a very cute and somewhat silly book. It was fun to track the dinosaur with the children and speculate [...]
