As soon as I saw the title of this book, I knew my kids would love it!

We Don’t Eat Our Classmates is the newest book that’s perfect for easing anxiety and first-day-of-school nerves. Find a comfy spot in your house, and prepare for laughs in this read-aloud book. It can also make for a special night-before-school tradition.

Dinosaur Penelope Rex is the star of the book and has a taste for children. She learns an important lesson in empathy when the class pet chomps on her finger, and she sees how her classmates must view her. With a humorous tone, your kids will love Penelope and her adventures and will root for her to forge friendships with her classmates.

This book is also a good conversation starter if your child is experiencing a biting phase.

Written and illustrated by the award-winning Ryan T. Higgins, he’s the same author of the popular book Mother Bruce. He’s well known for his deadpan and multi-level visual comedy that entertains children and adults alike.

We Don’t Eat Our Classmates is available for purchase from Disney Publishing here.
