A Jurassic-themed, rhyming picture book for children starting school!
All through the land, little dinos were stirring.
They opened their eyes and their brains started whirring.
The BIG day is here, they thought from their beds -
some leapt with excitement, some trembled with dread . . .
Jewel the dinosaur is very nervous about her first day of school. There are so many new dinos to meet, the dining hall is noisy and her new classroom is so big!
But as the day goes on, and Jewel settles into her new class and makes new friends, she realises that school isn't that scary after all.
With adorable illustrations by Loretta Schauer and rhyming, reassuring text, this fun starting-school picture book will encourage young readers to explore their own feelings or nerves around this big milestone so they can have a roar-some first day too!
