All the dinosaurs are having a beauty pagent, and every year, the t-rex has won! But, perhaps, this time, someone else will take the crown! Or at least overcome their fear enough to stick it to the end!
The ending is pretty cute, giving a nice moral resolution, and then a great gag. A tyranosaur always wins, even when they lose on purpose. ;p
I'm not sure if this will appeal to kids who are rigidly adhering to either male or female gender roles, but if yours is willing to blur a bit, this should really hit the spot.
The fully colorful pages show Tina, Patty, Stef, Sarah, Maya Teri, all vying to be crowned the next Miss Dinosaur. Everyone is so sure that Tina has this in the bag and take off, all but Maya who gracefully shares the crown with Tina because like everyone said throughout the book, Tina had to win.
Perfect book with fun pages for girls and boys. Sweet lesson too, no need for jealousy, just because you think someone is better than you, doesn't mean they are. You may just get a friend AND in this case a crown out of the deal too.
Loved the colorful pics AND nice story to read out loud.
It appears that Tina (the T Rex) always wins because the other dinosaurs are afraid of her, so they run off. This is clear to me, but my four year old didn't get it.
It just doesn't make a lot of sense, seems disjointed, and honestly is not one of our favorites.
