Dinos Don’t Give Up!

We rated this book:


Dinah the diplodocus is loved and adored by all of the other dinosaurs. Everything that Dinah does comes easily to her—she is naturally artistic, musically inclined, the best at baking, and a genius in school. She is also a very kind friend and offers her genuine support to others when they are in need. When a big surf competition comes to town, Dinah is eager to add another skill to her ever-growing list of talents. To her surprise, Dinah wipes out on her surfboard as she watches the other dinosaurs surfing with ease.

This story will teach children ages three to seven to persevere in challenging times. Instead of giving up, Dinah bravely gets back on her board and tries again. Her friends all rush to offer her encouraging words and a warm hug to help her feel better. Dinah feels comforted by her friends, but insists that she keep trying until she finds the fun in this new challenge.
