T. Rex and the Mother's Day Hugby Lois G. Grambling, Jack E. Davis
Mother's Day is here, and T. Rex wants to plan something extra special for his mama. He really wants to do something instead of just giving something. T. Rex is sure he has a perfect gift idea, but will Mama Rex love it, too?
K-Gr 2- T. Rex never buys his mother a Mother's Day present. Instead, he likes to do something for her. Mama tries to head him off this year by saying that all she wants is a hug, but he is determined to do something special for her. Trying to outdo his previous presents of a disastrous wallpapering job and redecorating the living room with ferns from the swamp, T. Rex spies Mam's red convertible and decides to give it a makeover. He and his dinosaur buddies hammer, paste, and paint until the car looks completely different. Mam's shocked face softens into a smile when her son gives her a big hug and she remembers that, thankfully, Mother's Day comes only once a year. Davis's jaunty cartoon illustrations bring these less-than-extinct dinosaurs alive. This fun read-aloud will tickle young children as they prepare for Mother's Day themselves.-Joan Kindig, James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VACopyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
