I've been a fan of Lisa Wheeler's Dino-Sports and Dino-Holidays series ever since I was gifted a copy of Dino-Hockey! Dino-Valentines was just as cute as the previous books of the series. Barry Gott's adorable illustrations as usual have details you'll notice the 6th, 10th or 112th time your kid requests you read this. Lisa Wheeler always throws in some cool words to explain to your kid while maintaining awesome rhymes. I'm personally not too keen on Valentine's day as a holiday but i loved this book and I can't wait to read it with my little dino-fans when it comes out!

Thank you so much Lerner Publishing Group and NetGalley for the ARC of this one!

‘Dino-Valentine’s day’ is an adorable picture book that features dinosaurs and their friends in their quests to making valentine cards. A rhyming book for children, this will entertain kids of any gender and interest. The colors and drawings pop and the rhyme scheme allows for an engaging flow during story time.

Dinosaurs + Valentine’s Day? Count me in! What a fun creative little story! I loved the colorful artwork and the rhyming couplets throughout. It wa da good length of book for my almost four year old. She enjoyed it, the Dino’s were easy for her to recognize. And the sweet message of spreading love all around was very sweet.

The illustrations are the best I’ve seen in a childrens book! This story is about a bunch of Dino’s preparing for Valentines Day by making cards and yummy treats for one another. The story kept the attention of my 4 year old who laughed out loud a couple of times, there was a little bit of rhyming but not overwhelmingly so.

The Dinosaurs are very excited about Valentine's Day just around the corner! With so much preparation to be done, the entire town is busy making gifts for their Valentine's.

Dino-Valentine's Day is such a whimsical story by Lisa Wheeler, and wonderfully illustrated by Barry Gott,

With a fun rhyming pattern throughout, this story is very fun to read aloud. I will thoroughly enjoy reading this to my stepson, especially because the characters throughout have fun authentic dinosaur names like Diplo, Ptero, and Stego, just to name a few.

Thank you, NetGalley for providing me with this book to read.

A Dino-Valentine's Day is a sweet read, with an adorable rhyming scheme.
It is a fast read (one can read this to their child in less than an hour).
It has a great message of including everyone so no one feels left out.
The illustrations are also adorable.
It also feels complete, unlike other children's books I have read.

What a sweet and fast read!

Loved the diversity, how every dinosaur looks different but everyone is accepted. The ending melted my heart

The illustrations are so cozy and unique. My favorite scene might be Apatosaurus and his tiny scissors.

Adorable read that I am sure will be loved by kids and adults alike
