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."

JANE YOLEN has written more than two hundred books for children and adults, including the Caldecott Medal winner, Owl Moon. She lives in western Massachusetts and in St. Andrews, Scotland. MARK TEAGUE is the award-winning children's book author and illustrator of his own bestselling Dear Mrs. LaRue series as well as Firehouse!, Funn...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from How Do Dinosaurs Say I'm Mad? (How Do Dinosaurs...?) Another fantastic collaboration between Jane Yolen and Mark Teague in this perfect picture book collection for young readers. How Do Dinosaurs Say I’m Mad? shows children just how silly a dinosaur would look when they scream, throw a fit or pout. It’s not a far leap for parents to ask… “How silly do you think you look when you do that??" Probably just as silly as the dinosaur. A wonderful series that kids will want to read again and again. Love it! This book probably has some of the funniest illustrations I've seen in a children's picture book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Series to Teach Social Skills My kids and I LOVE Yolen's "How Do Dinosaurs..." book series. The illustrations are hilarious and the messages have an immediate and positive impact to use in "teachable moments". I love to reference to these books when I need to remind my kids how to act or handle themselves - then we laugh together and recite examples from "How Do Dinosaurs...."
