Tiny T. Rex and the Tricks of Treating

Chronicle. Sept. 2021. 20p. Board $7.99. ISBN 9781452184906.
Toddler-PreS–Tiny T. Rex from Tiny T. Rex and the Impossible Hug is back just in time for Halloween. Tiny and his friend Pointy are Halloween experts and want to share their tips with children to ensure they have the best holiday ever. This short and delightful board book is broken down into six “tricks” that are tips for Halloween enjoyment. Maps, costumes, the buddy system, and manners are all covered as readers learn the proper protocols to follow to become treat masters, but the ending shows readers that the biggest reward is sharing treats with others. Colorful illustrations, dominated by black and orange Halloween hues, give the book a holiday feel that will attract young readers, especially those who have met the character in previous entries.
VERDICT This spirited book is recommended as a general purchase for holiday or board book collections, not least because it teaches the lesson of generosity to little ones.–Kristen Todd-Wurm, Middle Country P.L., NY
