How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?

by Jane Yolen Illustrated by Mark Teague

The bestselling, award-winning team of Yolen and Teague are back with another playful dinosaur tale, this time about a sick dinosaur child who catches the flu and must go to the doctor.

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? They drink lots of juice, and they get lots of rest; they're good at the doctor's, 'cause doctors know best. As in their previous book, Yolen and Teague capture children's fears about being sick and put them to rest with playful read-aloud verse and wonderfully amusing pictures.
