What preschool has not had a Tyrannosaurus Wrecks moment? This delightful board book will immediately be a classroom and family favorite. Not only does the book uncover some unusual dinosaurs but it portrays a very identifiable scenario in the preschool classroom.

Anything with dinosaurs is a perfect match for the three- to five-year-old age group the book targets.

But this book goes deeper than a love of dinosaurs to subtly introduce themes of acceptance, understanding and patience with peers. Some of the dinosaur names are tricky to pronounce but never fear, because Bardhan-Quallen provides a pronunciation guide on the back page to help.

Zachariah Ohora’s illustrations are bright and cheerful, with the primary colors capturing the spirit of early learning environments. Tyrannosaurus Wrecks is destined to be a classic back to school text for many, many years both at school and at home.
