" I absolutely love the illustrations in this book! It is a fun way to introduce dinosaurs to students in kindergarten and first grade. You could extend this book by allowing children to make their own combinations of dinosaurs or animals with different vehicles or other objects that they know. Students can either build a model of their imaginary creature or draw a picture and describe it. " said.

" We got this from our local library as a free book for the Summer Reading Program and my daughter loves it! It combines her two favorite things, her love of trucks and her love of dinosaurs into one fun book that even teaches some manners. The dinosaur names are a little ridiculous, but it's well worth the read. " said.

" What do kids like? Dinosaurs and Trucks. What's better than a book about dinosaurs driving trucks? Books about dinotrux. It works, it's funny, it's fun, the art is perfect, and best of all, it rates highly with the 4 year old demographic. The morals presented are straightforward and pertinent, like don't just potty anywhere you may be. " said.

" The conceit of the book is that years ago, in the time of cavemen, prehistoric precursors to modern day heavy use vehicles roamed the earth as dinotrucks with names that are amalgamations of dinosaur and vehicle names. It's not a bad idea, but the story is a little unclear and hard to follow for a young (almost 4) reader and the illustrations are a bit muddy. " said.

" In the book rating world this book for me is a 3 star. But for little boys and girls who are mad for dinosaurs this will excited the pants off of them. This book is well used and loved. It is actually getting removed for our system because it is well used. If I liked it better, I might order a new one but I could take it or leave it! So to make room for bigger and better things... this is my review! " said.

" I read this to my 1st graders today and they LOVED it! The class is made up of mostly boys and the combination of dinosaurs and trucks made it a definite hit for them! The use of every day trucks combined with dinosaur names such as the Craneosaurus, Dozeratops, and the Tyrannosaurus Trux just to name a few made for a great reading. I believe they liked the Firesaurus best! Can you guess what kind of truck that is? :-) " said.

" If you have a child that is passionate about dinosaurs and cars of all makes and models this may be the perfect book for them. I however could care less about cars as long as they go vrooom when I put the key in, so this book wasn't one I would be overly excited to share with young readers. Hello! According to the Jetson's we should have flying cars at this point. When is telaportation going to finally come about???... feeling rather cheated here in 2011. " said.

" Dinosaurs and trucks, an irresistible combination for most young boys. The story of how Dinotrux once ruled the world is cute and the cave peoples reactions are pretty funny. The illustrations are my favorite part. Each two-page spread portrays creatively named dinotrux such as Dumploducus and Dozeratops wreaking havoc on the Prehistoric world. Eventually most of the Dinotrux meet a tragic end and the world is completely changed. " said.
