Brawny Dinosaur confronts each first-day-of-school situation with his self-assured “ROAR!” Bob Shea’s humorous mixed media artwork conveys the repeated anxiety and relief that we all feel as we conquer new situations. In this sequel to Dinosaur vs. Bedtime, we follow Dinosaur through a new school day. Each task is a “win!” as our protagonist makes friends, plays dress up, snacks and even braves the communal clean up.
This is a picture book that will appeal to kids ages 2 – 6, especially if they are just starting (or going back) to school. Read it in a funny --- “RAWR!” --- dinosaur voice, and your young ones will demand to “read” it back to you!
