Back of Book:  What if a dinosaur catches the flu?
Does he whimper and whine between each “At-choo”?
Does he drop dirty tissues all over the floor?
Does he fling his medicine out of the door?
Just like kids, little dinosaurs hate being sick. And going to the doctor can be pretty scary. How DO dinosaurs get well soon?

My Review:  In a classroom of Kindergarteners getting sick is just a part of life. The last time I had a really bad cold, and wanted to just sleep instead of teaching I read this book. It is a fun story about all about the symptoms that come with being sick. Each page has a different type of dinosaur on it which keeps children engaged. The story discusses the importance of going to the doctors and getting plenty of rest. This is a great book to read to children before a doctor visit or when they are not feeling well. This is one of my favorite stories that I read to my students last year.
