I Speak Dinosaur!
by Jed Henry (2012, Abrams, 14.95/hardback)
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. Color. Grades PreK-3. [9" x
Words Are Not for Hurting
by Liz Verdick (2004, Free Spirit, 11.95)
Some words are kind. But some of them are not. What do hurtful
words do? Here, children will learn that their words belong to
them: They can think before they speak, then choose what to say
and how to say it. They will explore simple, positive ways to
respond when others say hurtful things to them. Most importantly,
they will discover the power or saying "I'm sorry," when
their words hurt someone else. You'll find the "activities and
discussion starters" (pages 28-31) worth the price of the book.
