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.
Offers preschoolers a colorfully illustrated, read-aloud tale about a frightened dinosaur who finally overcomes his fears and visits the doctor where he gets the treatment he needs to be made well once again.
