Tyrannosaurus Wrecks!
Written by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen
Illustrated by Zachariah Ohora
Abrams, 2014. unpaged picture book

Apatosaurus, Pteranodon and Velociraptor are all doing crafts quietly at the table when Tyrannosaurus comes and wrecks everything.  It can be fun to wreck things, but it doesn't win Tyrannosaurus any friends.  Lonely and sad, Tyrannosaurus decides he will try playing nice. It isn't easy for him, but it is worth it. This bright and colorful picture book is just perfect for preschoolers who are just learning to think about the feelings of others.  Simple rhyming text and bold, cartoon dinosaurs will charm both boys and girls.
