R-O-A-R! What happens when little dinosaurs get mad? And how do they calm down?

Brimming with humour, 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 timeout, 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 humour in all the bestselling How Do Dinosaurs books, here is the perfect way to say, "I'm sorry - and I love you."

Do you know what dinosaurs do when they’re mad? In this title from Jane Yolen’s extremely popular picture book series, children can see how dinosaurs act when they’re angry and what they should do to control their tempers. Ages 0-6.

This is a good book for beginning readers to follow along with and for young children learning to deal with their emotions.
