That's What Dinosaurs Do Kindle Edition
From The Bad Seed and The Good Egg creators, Jory John and Pete Oswald, comes a story about a dinosaur who loves to ROAR.
William the dinosaur likes to roar.
At the park?“ROAR.”
At the bus stop?“ROAR!”
At the farm? You bet. ROARRR!
William never lets the chance to roar pass him by, even if others find it rather bothersome.
That's until William gets a sore throat and the doctor warns him not to roar for a WHOLE week. But can this overexcited, boisterous, giant lizard not do what dinosaurs are meant to do?!
In his humorous and insightful style, Jory John creates an epic story about unapologetically and happily being yourself, no matter the cost. Another side-splitting combination of John’s brilliant text and Pete Oswald’s expressive and lively illustrations, That’s What Dinosaurs Do is a read-aloud that young readers will roar for again and again.

From the Back Cover
This is William.
William is a dinosaur who loves to roar. Because, well, he’s a dinosaur.
But when William gets a sore throat, the doctor tells him, “No roaring for a week!”
No roaring at the mailman or the bus driver.
No roaring in line or at the park.
That means absolutely NO roaring at anyone or anything? This can’t be happening!
Will this overexcited dinosaur make it through the week without roaring at all?!--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

I think if the book isn’t taken too seriously- or serious at all really- then it’s fine. It’s a cute, interactive book for little ones. But if you want more than just silly roaring and you want a good story, this just simply isn’t it.
Our Dinosaur reeks havoc of his neighbors and KNOWS THAT but continues to do it after his voice heals. He roars because that’s what dinosaurs do! But that’s the same as saying “boys will be boys” when one does something inappropriate and personally that’s not the sort of lesson or mindset I want the kids around me to have. Be better.
