From early childhood to life after eighty, the great challenge of any friendship is keeping it healthy and strong. In this funny, engaging book, award-winners Jane Yolen and Mark Teague present humorous, naughty dinosaur antics that
any young sibling or friend will instantly recognize — followed by dinosaur-sized hugs and expressions of affection.
Do children in your home ever fight over a toy? Do good friends at school ever push or call names? And do buddies also know to share, give cookies, and apologize?
Come along and laugh in the tenth full-sized book in this highly acclaimed series — as little ones make friends and stay friends … the dinosaur way!



Fantastic book, my 3-year-old daughter loves it! This book was very popular in her preschool class and we won a copy of it at her recent book fair. It is a great story about what a good friend is. First, the book goes through what a bad friend is and then what would make a good friend in each of the situations previously shown of being a bad friend. Your child will love the colorful dinosaurs in each picture and will enjoy the story while learning at the same time. This book is not just for kids who are “crazy” about Dinosaurs, my daughter has zero interest in Dinosaurs and still loves this book. I have to admit if I hadn’t won it I wouldn’t have thought to purchase it because of my daughter’s lack of interest in Dinosaurs but surprisingly this has become one of her favorite books. As you can see from the pictures of the book below, they are very detailed and the dinosaurs express emotion very well in each picture. Has your child read this book? Do they love it? This is a simple and quick read for a parent, which is nice, while teaching your child about how to be a good friend.
