Little Lap the dinosaur is finding it hard to make friends - and he just doesn't know why!

Maybe using his words would help him?


What a great book! We can fully relate to Lap, the little dinosaur, with "use your words"!

Gorgeous book with a beautiful message!

I would love to hear what your little one thought about Lap's, the little dinosaur, story!



About the author

Antje Taylor was born and raised in Germany. She moved to Australia over ten years ago and now lives in Brisbane with her husband and her two young children.

The idea for Friends don’t like roaring came to her when watching her son at the playground, not knowing how to talk to and interact with other children and hence, 'roaring' at them. After telling her son a story about a roaring dinosaur at the playground, Antje put it down on paper and Lap, the little dinosaur, came to life.

When she is not a mum, Antje works as a management consultant. She enjoys travelling, outrigger canoeing, spending time on the beach and reading books, both for herself or to her children. Friends don't like roaring is her first children's book.
