Praise for How Do Dinosaurs Stay Friends?:
"The 10th dinosaur outing for Yolen and Teague playfully addresses the minefield of school friendships, as always cleverly subbing in outsized dinosaur antics for the gigantic feelings in every little kid's body... who can resist when dinosaur buddies share a sincere, well-earned hug?" -- Kirkus Reviews
