"What would you do if on the very first day of school Dinosaur wasn't smiling his big, toothy dinosaur smile? You'd say, 'Don't worry, Dinosaur. School will be fun.'" So begins the story as a little boy helps his dinosaur friend overcome his fears of the first day of school.  All sorts of questions that children might ask are addressed by the little boy - why does he have to go to school, what if he has to speak up and say his name, what if he doesn't like what they serve for lunch?  His answers should calm the tummies of any young student.  And best of all, he explains how to make new friend.  By the end of the day, Dinosaur loves school and can't wait to come again the next day.
