I Speak Dinosaur! by Jed Henry

A boy decides when he speaks "dinosaur" he does not have to worry about using good manners. He can say what he wants and how he wants it. He quickly discovers that is not the case. What he does discover is when he speaks "dinosaur" he is quite lonely. When he meets other dinosaurs he is surprised to learn that dinosaurs are polite and use good manners. Maybe he needs to change his "dinosaur-language". I Speak Dinosaur! will appeal to dinosaur loving kiddos. The book has a great message about using manners and being polite though at times it was somewhat confusing to follow. Hopefully kids would see beyond that to the deeper message.
