What educators are saying

This book series is so great for social-emotional development and I was happy to find a book companion!
Great book to use at the beginning of the year when students are feeling frustrated with new challenges in kindergarten.


This language based book companion is the perfect compliment to the book How Do Dinosaurs Say I'm Mad by Jane Yolen. Using this companion pack you can easily address 9 different language skills, such as tier 1 and 2 vocabulary, sequencing, comprehension, and many more! With the purchase of this companion you will receive both a full color version as well as a black/white version. You get to pick and choose which version or portions of the versions you use.
