If I Were A T-Rex (T-Rex Series Volume 1) is perfect for the young girl or boy that really likes dinosaurs. The illustrations are well done with many different pictures of the T-Rex being many different things. I think it certainly sparks the imagination of a child to share in the pretending and learn that it is possible for them to be whatever they can think of in their playtime.
This is a whimsical book that is fun for the pre-school and early education child and especially those that are interested in the world of dinosaurs. I read this book on the Kindle with my five-year-old granddaughter and she found it very entertaining. Each picture was reason for conversation about whether or not she thought it was something she would want to be and if she thought the T-Rex would be good at it. Her favorite “If I Were” was that she and the T-Rex could walk on the moon together.
It was a good sharing of ideas and time well spent with my grandchild. She wanted to read it again and again and had different ideas of what she and the T-Rex could do each time we read it. Gary Truitt and Frank Dawson definitely understand the mind of a young child. While If I Were A T-Rex features a little boy, my granddaughter thought nothing of it and was quickly involved in the story. I think that If I Were a T-Rex is a fun story that offers the opportunity for learning and sharing ideas and is a sure winner.
