About the Book
An easy-to-read text and engaging, funny dinosaurs introduce young children to good manners, the benefits of being considerate to others, and the secret to making friends.

"Dinosaurs don't just take, take, take; dinosaurs do share." When they are mad, they don't hit or bite; instead they use words to express their feelings. They shout and run outdoors; they don't shout at a wedding or run in the china shop.

Reviews
"Straightforward behavior modeling for newly fledged independent readers. . . . Philosophically solid."—Kirkus Reviews
