Publisher's Summary

Skippyjon Jones is crazy-loco for dinosaurs! The kitty boy enters (via his closet) the land of dinosaurs in search of the fabled Skipposaurus. Instead he runs into his old amigos, the Chimichango gang. When a T-Mex threatens the pack, it's El Skippito, the great sword fighter, to the rescue. With yips and yowls, he drives the big baddie away, so all the dino-dudes can rattle their bones another day.

This fourth entry in a series that Kirkus Reviews called "ay caramba, mucho fun" will win even more fans for the Siamese cat with oversize ears and an imagination to match.

Excellent narration and writing!

OK. I bought this for my 5 year old granddaughter! Well, after we have listened to it together several times, I find myself listening to it by myself! Don't think I am simplistic either. I have 2 Masters degrees! Skippy John Jones books, all of them, are wonderful and I can listen to them anytime! The narrator is excellent too. Best of all, it is the perfect length...not too short and not too long! Highly recommend all the Skippy John Jones books!

Disappointing

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. Reading it...yes. Listening...no. She is a good author, not a good narrator. She reads WAY to quickly for children. There is no need to rush through life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Skippyjon Jones and the Big Bones?

I love Skippyjon's imagination. I think he works as a wonderful tool to get kids to use their imaginations.

What didn???t you like about Judy Schachner???s performance?

She is a good author, not a good narrator. She reads WAY to quickly for children. There is no need to rush through life. Children need to process what they hear. Impossible with her reading.

Any additional comments?

These stories definitely need to be read aloud. The rhyme scheme and alliteration is wonderful, but do it yourself.

Very Funny

My 22month old, 34 month old and 4.5 year old love all the skippy jon jones books. The author does a great job incorporating spanish words and catchy songs into a really entertaining story.

My son who is 4 LOVES this series. He will not go to bed without listening to them. It has become our night time ritual. We have snuggle time and giggle. He loves the songs and I love the narrator and how she make the story really come alive.

Interesting the kids loved it

Would you consider the audio edition of Skippyjon Jones and the Big Bones to be better than the print version?

Yes, it was exciting to hear it being read, my son said he liked the voices and the way it brought the book to life.

What other book might you compare Skippyjon Jones and the Big Bones to and why?

Anything by Judy Schachner and The Genius Files(adventures of Coke and Pep).

Have you listened to any of Judy Schachner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I have, I volunteer in my kids classroom a lot and the most fav book to read is Skippyjon Jones and plus the way I read it makes it awesome. Love all the Skippyjon Jones books. My favorite Skippyjon Jones is Mummy Trouble.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

How Skippyjon has to learn his listen.
