What if a dinosaur won't be polite?
Maybe burps at the table and starts food fights?
Watch these dinosaur children's larger-than-life antics as they navigate sharing and showing gratitude with their human family and friends.
Do dinosaurs spit broccoli on the floor, hog the slide at the playground, or wreck the bathroom with their latest mud science experiment?
Of course not! They share, they show kindness, and they are polite.
Being courteous is an important lesson in children's lives. While learning good manners is full of its own struggles and quandaries, the payoff of hearing "please" and "thank you" is worth it.
Each book in the endlessly popular How Do Dinosaurs series is a combination of childish antics followed by a gentle lesson -- with over 14.5 million books in print. See if your little readers can find the names of each dinosaur, hidden on each page!

"A guide to better behavior -- at home, on the playground, in class, and in the library." -- Kirkus Reviews
Praise for How Do Dinosaurs Choose Their Pets?:
"Yolen's rhymes are jaunty, and, as always, Teague has a field day. His illustrations highlight the unbridled joy these vibrantly colored, lesser-known species of dinos... have playing with a variety of creatures." -- Kirkus Reviews
Praise for How Do Dinosaurs Stay Friends?:
"The 10th dinosaur outing for Yolen and Teague playfully addresses the minefield of school friendships, as always cleverly subbing in outsized dinosaur antics for the gigantic feelings in every little kid's body... who can resist when dinosaur buddies share a sincere, well-earned hug?" -- Kirkus Reviews
Praise for How Do Dinosaurs Stay Safe?:
"This beloved series hit the ground running, and it's still going strong." -- Booklist
"As in previous outings, Teague's artwork steals the show, the realism of the scenes and human figures juxtaposed with the giant, though childish, dinos. Labels in the illustrations and endpapers will help dino mavens identify their favorites. Don'ts and Do's in a familiar formula go down easily for fans and will provide a good conversation starter for parents." -- Kirkus Reviews
