Description

Saying goodbye is hard, even for dinosaurs.

When they have to part from a loved one, they might cry, or hide in their bedrooms, or even write "DON'T GO!" on the wall. But with a little courage, they can face their fears. They can tell grown-ups how they're feeling and know that time apart can still be filled with love.

This humorous and heartfelt picture book from bestselling duo Jane Yolen and Mark Teague will teach young readers how to say goodbye with poise and grace -- with laugh-out-loud antics along the way!

Each How Do Dinosaurs book is a combination of childish antics followed by a gentle lesson -- with over 19 million books in print. See if your little readers can find the names of each dinosaur, hidden on each page!

Look for all the bestselling How Do Dinosaurs...? books by Jane Yolen with illustrations by Mark Teague.
