Every kid gets sick at one point or another, and there is no doubt about the fact that being sick really is the pits. In How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?, one of the several books in the How do Dinosaurs series by Jane Yolen and Mark Teague, the author explores the idea of dinosaurs getting sick—if they were anything like real children, of course.
When little dinos get sick, apparently they act very much like children. The book is full of engaging illustrations or dinosaurs looking sick and weak, but also cranky and disagreeable as well. As it is in all of the How do Dinosaur books in the series, How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon? features human parents that are very worried about their well being. When they are sick, do they drag their feet? Do they go see a doctor?
As it turns out, dinosaurs do the right thing when they are sick. They listen to the doctor and behave properly at the doctor’s office. They drink plenty of fluids and make sure to get plenty of sleep. This is the case according to How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?
No kid wants to be sick, but this dinosaur book is a great one to read to your little one when those inevitable times do come around. The best thing about this book is that it has pictures of actual dinosaurs, as they are believed to look. Not many dinosaur childrens books feature that and that is one thing that sets this series apart from other dino books.
