KIRKUS REVIEW

Dinosaur fans will instantly warm to this friendly prehistoric duo and their endearing playmates. In simple, colorful, and accessible illustrations, Most (Hippopotamus Hunt, 1994, etc.) depicts a day in the life of a pair of protoceratops as they learn and play in preschool, celebrate birthdays, and glumly work through a punishment doled out by a stem father. The pair sweetly share everything, from their pals, to household chores. The clever connection of events will hold youngsters' interests while they practice the tongue-twisting phrases with the letter P. The author also subtly points out the tree meaning of a pair, with the numerals 1 and 2 prominently portrayed on nearly every page. The highlight, however, is Most's pink-and-purple palette, which is playful and perfectly pleasing to the eye.
