by Janet Lawler, illustrated by Lucy Corvino
A father takes his young son to the park, and they spend the whole day playing, laughing, chasing, swimming, and simply enjoying their time together. The cheery paintings and rhyming text make you feel like you’ve been invited to witness a few special childhood memories between a father and son. Recommended for ages 3-7.

How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?

Here’s an amusing book that features childish dinosaurs and how they behave when they are unwell. The comedic pictures feature sick dinosaurs interacting with parents, nurses, and doctors in ways that are socially appropriate and inappropriate. With lilting question-and-answer verses, the text provides children a humorous introduction to the etiquette of being ill. Recommended for ages 3-7.

I highly recommend the other books in this series as well, including:

How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?

How Do Dinosaurs Clean Their Rooms?

How Do Dinosaurs Go To School? (How Do Dinosaurs…)
