Synopsis

Gracie Grumposaurus by Brian Moses, Mike Gordon

Gracie Grumposaurus was a very grumpy dinosaur. From first thing in the morning until last thing at night, Gracie was a grump. Her parents tried everything to cheer her up, but nothing worked. Would anything make her smile? If you've got a child who's even a little bit grumpy, this book will surely cheer them up. Includes notes for parents and teachers on how to share this book to help children learn about their feelings and emotions.
