DinoFeelings – Teach children about big feelings

Hachette Children’s Group

Teach your little dinosaurs about BIG feelings with the DinoFeelings picture book series, from the bestselling author of The Lion Inside, Rachel Bright, and illustrator of Ten Minutes to Bed, Chris Chatterton.

It’s a beautiful day and Worrysaurus has planned a special picnic.

But it isn’t long before a small butterfly of worry starts fluttering in his tummy . . .

What if he hasn’t brought enough to eat?

What if he gets lost in the jungle?

What if he trips and falls?

What if it rains?!

Can Worrysaurus find a way to chase his fears away and have fun?

The series started with the hugely popular The Worrysaurus, following with The Hugasaurus and their latest collaboration, The Stompysaurus.

These picture books are perfect for gently introducing topics of worries, kindness and frustration in a reassuring and accessible way and opening up conversations about how to overcome overwhelming feelings.
