How do dinosaurs spend their days? Are their days “happy or icky?” Well, just like our days, dinosaur’s days are filled with all kinds of moments. Sometimes they pout when they are sitting at the dinner table, and sometimes they “grumble” when they are ill. Sometimes they cause a disruption in class and “push other kids for a turn on the slide.” Sometimes dinosaurs have a hard time.

Thankfully, there are also those times when dinosaurs are polite, and patient. They remember to take turns in the classroom and on the playground. They rest during naptime, and raise their hand “when there’s something to say” during class time.

Fans of the How do dinosaurs… books are sure to love this sticker storybook. Not only will they get to enjoy some time with their dinosaur friends, but they also get to put stickers on every page. Spaces have been left in the art that children can fill with the appropriate dinosaur sticker, and then there are additional stickers that they can add to the pages in the book or that they can use to decorate their own art.
