Mrs. Toggle and the Dinosaur
Illustrated by R.W. Alley
Mrs. Toggle is in a tizzy. The principal has told her to get ready for a new student. But this is no ordinary student. It's a dinosaur! Mrs. Toggle has never taught a dinosaur before. There's so much to do to make it feel welcome. Mr. Abel, the custodian, must make a desk big enough for it and Mrs. Burns, the cook, needs to know if it's a vegetarian or a meat-eater. How will Mrs. Toggle ever get ready in time?
When the new student finally arrives, Mrs. Toggle is in for a big surprise. And she learns to take her own good advice: if you don't understand something the first time you hear it, ask questions.
