Dinosaurs Help Ease Kids Back Into School

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Kids, if you’re dreading back-to-school season, a few prehistoric pals are ready to give you some playground pointers.

Author Jane Yolen has just penned How Do Dinosaurs Go To School? (Blue Sky Press) – the ninth installment in her How Do Dinosaurs book series – which schools kiddies on how to conquer the classroom like their well-behaved dino buddies.

But although prehistoric creatures roaming the schoolyard may seem a bit strange, for Yolen, the premise is “perfectly normal.”

Yolen explains, “I have written books about how these dinosaurs eat, say goodnight, and clean their rooms, and I thought it was time they packed up and ventured off to school. They needed some education in their lives!”

And the diligent dinosaurs are already rubbing off on some young students.

Yolen says, “I’ve shared the book with my grandchildren who are starting school soon, and now they’re very excited to go. Of course they realize the dinosaurs won’t actually be at school, but they’re ready to show off the schooltime manners they’ve learned from them.”

How Do Dinosaurs Go To School? is now available in stores.
