Little boys will roar for I Speak Dinosaur , in which an energetic kid with a big imagination prefers to "speak Dinosaur." Speaking Dinosaur means he doesn't have to use his manners and instead can roar and growl at his friends and family But speaking Dinosaur gets the boy into trouble, and without other "dinosaurs" to talk to and play with, he gets lonely. Delivering a fun message that encourages young readers to express themselves creatively, yet cautioning that even dinosaurs need to be polite and say "please" and "thank you," this dino-mite book will have larger-than-life kid appeal.

Praise for I Speak Dinosaur
"In this fun and energetic picture book, one that will definitely grab your boys' attention, a young boy with a creative imagination chooses to speak in dinosaur language...This is a wonderful title for an elementary school counselor and for teachers of younger students."
