Every child loves a birthday party. If you've ever been in a school setting, being invited to a birthday party is the ultimate fun activity. I know that because the first threat when a child is mad becomes, "You can't come to my birthday party!" Ha. What else do children enjoy? Dinosaurs. T. Rex is fun to say so the mixture of this dinosaur with a birthday party is almost an instant hit. I say almost because the fact that the story is told from a child's point of view makes this one of the best children's books ever and throws it over the top of fun to wonderful. Dasha Tolstikova added to my love of this book with the marvelous illustrations. Boys and girls will smile and laugh while reading this or having it read to them. Well done, Jill Esbaum. I hope you have another book in the works.
You never know what will happen when a T. Rex crashes your birthday party. Sure, you'll be super excited when he turns up at your door. But then he’ll stomp. He’ll ROAR. He’ll look at you as if he’s wondering how you taste with a little mustard. In the end, though, you just may find yourself asking him to come back next year! This delightfully whimsical picture book has a fun twist kids will love.
