Staff Reviews


Tiny T. Rex is very small, with even smaller arms. They're not the best arms for hugging. But when his best friend Pointy is sad, Tiny T. Rex is determined to give the best hug ever... even if he has to practice first. I love Tiny T. Rex! Our hero is plucky, funny, and absolutely adorable. He embraces his limitations, finds love in all his friends, and always tries his hardest. Kids and adults alike will fall in love with this sweet story!
