We Don’t Eat Our Classmates

A Delicious Snack?

Penelope Rex, a little dinosaur, prepared for her first day of school. She was nervous, like every young kid. Her mom got her new bag while her dad packed her lunch. She finally arrived at the classroom and was surprised that all her classmates were children. Excited, Penelope ate all those delicious children. But Mrs. Noodleman, her teacher, told her that we don’t eat our classmates and asked her to spit them. So Penelope spits them all out but loses a chance to make friends in the class. Frustrated, Penelope went home and told her dad that she couldn’t make friends. So, did dad help? Did Penelope make friends?



We picked this book for its funny title. The witty story with colorful illustrations can help children understand the aspects of sharing and caring for their classmates to make friends in their new school.



We Don’t Eat Our Classmates by Ryan T. Higgins is a comical story with a subtle message on behavior for young children.
