How do Dinosaurs Stay Friends? By Jane Yolen –OPTIONAL

Yolen, Jane  How do Dinosaurs Stay Friends? Blue Sky Press, 2016. $16.95 PICTURE BOOK
Do Dino friends blame each other? Write bad names? Break their friends things? No way, they take care of each other, share, and take care of one another.
This is a fun series that is very appealing to young readers. It features stellar illustrations that give the Dino’s childlike personalities, and a fun rhyming story. My problem, is that they never say they are Sorry and some of the bad ideas in the first part of the book might give younger readers new bad ideas they hadn't thought of. For example, many students don't know what egging a house is, and as someone who has had their home egged, I would like to keep that ideas out of the mix as long as possible.
