What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Dinosaurs are a year-round favorite for children of all ages, and the Dinosaur Pals series delivers lovable stories with bright illustrations, irresistible characters, and situations all kids can relate to. In First Day Friends, meet a new friendly fivesome of cuddly creatures to fall in love with: Kevin, the shy, new spinosaurus in town; Ty, a rambunctious T-Rex; Kayla, a nature-loving stegosaurus; Addy, a friendly apatosaurus; and Max, a slow (but determined!) triceratops. Together, these dinos learn all about being themselves, and letting others be who they are, too. With relatable situations—like the first day of school in a new town—that sometimes bring out troubling emotions, First Day Friends equips children with the tools to understand feelings, differences, and everything that makes us special.
