Dinosaur Douglas Books are the only books offering a fun, new way to explore health-related subjects for Early Years children, including oral health, vitamin D and obesity. Written in rhyme by children’s author Heather Maisner (over 35 titles), these illustrated books are ideal for bedtime reading and literacy.
When Heather discovered that the average five-year-old was consuming the equivalent of their body weight in sugar each year, she decided something dynamic needed to be done.
Joining forces with Paediatric Consultants at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, she created a fun, rhyming story about naughty Dinosaur Douglas, highlighting the importance of healthy eating and exercise.
Over-eating sugary food and drinks can lead to dental decay, weight gain and obesity, affecting children’s wellbeing, causing low self-esteem, bullying and missed school days.
Yet all this can be avoided by education of both parents and children, while the children are very young. And this is what Dinosaur Douglas and the Rumble Grumble Tum sets out to do - using a familiar, inimitable character to encourage children to think about the food they eat, and to exercise.
Dinosaur Douglas and the Beastly Bugs encourages children to look after their teeth.
Dinosaur Douglas Has Fun in the Sun teaches children about the importance of sunshine and vitamin D.

Our boys and girls loved Dinosaur Douglas, and it inspired us to be creative with the curriculum: we played with dinosaur small world toys, brushed toy dinosaur teeth, painted pictures of dinosaurs and, in role play, we created a dental surgery. Clayton Brook Nursery, Lancashire
