How Do Dinosaurs Play with Their Friends? by Jane Yolen

Boisterous toddler board books join the phenomenally best-selling 'How Do Dinosaurs' series! What if a dinosaur's friends come to play? Does he mope, does he pout if he can't get his way? Does he hide all his dump trucks, refusing to share? Does he throw his friends' colouring books up in the air? Time and time again, children are told to play nicely. This brilliantly illustrated board book is packed with rhymes that will teach children how. Mark Teague's laugh-out-loud illustrations, along with Jane Yolen's playful text, will show children that playing nicely can be easy and fun. Perfect for parents to read aloud to their children, this book is as funny as it is instructive.

's Book of the Week, The Sunday Times Praise for 'How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?': 'Children will find these poorly dinosaurs and their families really funny... The full-page illustrations are fantastic, too.'
