Heads up, dino lovers! If by chance you end up in an ancient habitat, and if you offer a T-Rex a bone, things could get . . . well . . . interesting. Dangerously interesting! Storyteller and teacher Tim Myers magically introduces the reader to all types of dinosaurs in quirky sort of way. The boy in the story had a tough day, dodging T-Rex by hiding in the underbrush, only to encounter a toothy dimetrodon. He escapes into a nearby bay, only to attract a 42-foot kronsaurus . . . it was a long day, running to and fro among ancient habitats. There’s lots of science, but no boring nonfiction here!

If You Give a T-Rex a Bone reminds me exactly of the dreams I had as a kid. Dreams that were my first tentative steps towards my dream job in paleontology. I had great fun traveling back in geologic time and my own time.

If You Give a T-Rex a Bone presents the magic and mystery of dinosaurs in a fun, educational, and informative style. The dinosaurs come to life on each page, and the ancillary notes and activities provide parents and teachers with creative teaching ideas.
