How Do Dinosaurs Say I’m Mad? by Jane Yolen  and Mark Teague (Blue Sky Press, 2013) is another winner from the “dinosaurs” series.  

My toddler (age 2) loves pretending to be mad. I don’t know why. But she watched an episode from Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood about counting to four when you are mad; now she likes to say “I’m Mad!” and stomp around. After a moment she’ll sit down, pretend to count, and then say “I’m happy again!” (Her “pretend counting” is one, two, blah, ten! or something similar.) It goes to say, then that she loves How Do Dinosaurs Say I’m Mad?. She loves finding the things the dinosaurs do that are not good.

“Uh Oh! Kicked a chair!” and she loves to join in with the “happy again” pages when the dinosaur is good. It is definitely time to get the others in the series!
