The text was too high level for most of the students I work with. However the concept was good and we used some of the pictures and simplified the text when reading

Loved this book. Accessible for 7/8+ years. Great pictures and content. Great use of dinosaurs/tigers to help children with ASD relate to anxiety. Would deinitely get out again.
