How Do Dinosaurs Say I'm Mad!by Jane Yolen
Synopses & Reviews
R-O-A-R! What happens when little dinosaurs get mad? And how do they calm down?
Brimming with humor, this sparkling new book handles a timeless children's topic with wit and wisdom. Romp and stomp! Roar and slam! Almost everyone gets angry. But how can young dinosaurs also learn to calm down, take a time out, and behave?
The award-winning team of Yolen and Teague have created a fun, engaging book sure to help children handle anger and frustration. Readers will laugh at the antics of an Afrovenator's tantrum and a storming Pachyrhinosaurus.
Anger can be difficult to talk about with your child, but even when little dinosaurs are furious, it's important to help them handle their feelings and remind them they are always loved. With the same warmth, charm, and humor in all the bestselling How Do Dinosaurs books, here is the perfect way to say, "I'm sorry--and I love you."
"Yes, even dinosaurs have bad days, and a few of them are at their worst in this addition to Yolen and Teague's popular series. It's always a delight to watch Teague's dinosaurs misbehave, and that's especially true when they're throwing tantrums: an ungainly barapa-saurus sticks out its tongue at its human sister (who sticks hers out right back), a thecodont 'throw' toys about,' and an afrovenator scribbles its name on the wall and sends a chair flying 'When he's told to sit still.' As in the previous books, proper behavior — including hugs, apologies, and neatening up — closes out the book. Good advice on handling albertosaurus-size bad moods. Ages 3 — 5."
