Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“I have a gigantic head with long pointy teeth, and a great loud roar.

 

I’m a huge ferocious hunter. I am . . .

 

a Tyrannosaurus.”

 

A little boy pretends to be different dinosaurs–and even a baby dinosaur just hatching from his shell–until his mother joins him with a snack and plays the role of mother dinosaur.

_________________________________

In spare words and vibrant illustrations, a young child mimics the actions of several different dinosaurs as he imagines he is one of them. After each spread showing the boy pretending, readers turn the page to find each dinosaur the boy imagines. Anna Grossnickle Hines's ability to showcase a child's perspective makes I Am a Tyrannosaurus perfect for toddlers who love dinosaurs.

Review:

"This companion to I Am a Backhoe (2010) is part guessing game, part exercise in imagination. A blond boy basically gives readers a tutorial in how to pretend to be half a dozen dinosaurs, including a triceratops, velociraptor, and brachiosaurus. 'I fly and swoop to scoop up fish. I am...' reads the text as the boy is seen acting out the motions, arms outstretched. A page turn reveals the answer (a pteranodon). Set against bright backdrops, Hines's digital illustrations focus on the boy, and in scenes where he appears with the various dinos, his poses mimic theirs. Kids are sure to follow suit. Ages 1 — 4. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
