Winner: 2015 Readers Favorite Award Endorsed by The National Bullying Prevention Center (PACER.org) The Dinosaur’s New Shoes is a wonderfully inspiring story about Teddy T-Rex, a young dinosaur that, when he sees someone being bullied, stands up to the bully, instead of just being a bystander.

This book provides a way to open a fun dialogue with children, parents, and educators through a lovable and engaging role model, named Teddy T-Rex, with whom they can identify and follow his example. This book also includes resources for kids, parents and educators on anti-bullying, such as how to identify a bully, who may be at risk, and how to properly respond to bullying. Parents and children will love the wonderful life lessons found in this book. “The Dinosaur’s New Shoes” will inspire all readers to change the world by helping those in need.
