Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–Peter Cottontail (aka the Easter Bunny) is sick with a cold, and he has asked his pal, the friendly though massive dinosaur from T. Rex Trick-or-Treats (HarperCollins, 2005), to step in for him. Although willing, T. Rex is not a natural for the role, and he doesn't get much support from his friends Diplodocus, Stegosaurus, and Iguanodon. However, they come to his rescue, tracking down eggs from Duck, Goose, and Turkey, and even one from Screech Owl, to replace those that went kersplat during his shell-shattering attempt at hopping. It is not until after all the deliveries are made that they begin to crack open, and dozens of tiny ducks started quacking! And dozens of tiny geese started honking! And dozens of tiny turkeys started gobbling!... And one tiny screech owl started screeching!, making it the best, although noisiest, Easter ever. Although this story is slight, T. Rex displays an admirable generosity of spirit that nearly matches his great size. The wacky cartoonlike illustrations pair perfectly with this silly text, and youngsters will enjoy both the language and the pictures.–Piper L. Nyman, formerly at Fairfield Civic Center Library, CA

Because I live 2000 miles away from my niece and nephew, I often buy books, create a video of myself reading it, and then send the book on to them. This was a recent selection, and it was a huge hit.

If you're looking for a religious Easter book, this is not at all what you're after. I was looking for one that was specifically not religious, so it was perfect. It's great for kids who love dinosaurs, If you're a vegan/vegetarian family, you might like that it highlights baby birds coming from eggs, but you'd probably not be crazy about the fact that the eggs clearly aren't with their parents. It's definitely not a book with any kind of animal agenda, but it might put your kid off eggs if they are easily worried.

In general, it's a fun, light story. We see a team of dinos preparing for Easter (the bunny is unable to do it), along with all the funny kinds of things you'd expect to happen if giant, awkward dinosaurs took the job from a tiny, agile bunny. It was a big hit, and I'd highly recommend it.

I ordered this book for my 5 year old grandson who is really into dinosaurs. He really enjoyed having it read to him and thought it was funny.
He observes every detail in the illustrations, they show broken raw eggs. At the end the donated eggs hatched live birds. When we were dying Easter eggs later he kept asking me when they would hatch and what kind of birds they would be. You can imagine how he reacted later when his mommy used them for egg salad! He thought she killed the little birds! Cute story but a little confusing for a little kid who truly believes. I explained away his concerns but he STILL wouldn't eat the egg salad! :)

For older kids (~ ages 6 - 9?), perhaps. Too much activity in the pictures - hard for younger kids to know what's going on. Younger kids have no idea what a "diplodocus", "stegosaurus", and "iguanodon" are, nor what some of the lingo means (e.g., "Tomorrow is Easter," Stegosaurus said, "not Halloween." "Peter Cottontail, a.k.a. the Easter Bunny, has a cold." etc...). "OK", but not a favorite book. Needs too much explanation to be fun and too hard for early readers.

Originally purchased because my then 4 year old son loved dinosaurs. Two years later he still loves this fun story about a well intentioned dinosaur. After reading it you will never look at the delivery of Easter eggs by the Easter Bunny the same way again. A big plus are the giggles from your child while you read the story.

What happens when Peter Cottontail gets a cold the day before Easter? His friend T-Rex steps in, that's what. When he breaks the eggs that he picks up from the Easter Bunny's house, his other dino friends Iguanodon, Stegasaurus, and Diplodocus help out by collecting eggs from some unlikely sources.

_Here Comes T. Rex Cottontail_ by Lois Grambling is a clever story about helping each other and caring for each other. The drawings by Jack E. Davis are exaggerated and larger-than-life. They aren't my favorite type of illustrations, but my 5 1/2 year old son gravitated to this book right away.

The story is creative and funny. I think that the drawings and the larger amount of text on a page make this book perfect for older picture-book readers, especially dinosaur-lovers.

This was a great book to send to my three year old nephew for Easter. He loves dinosaurs so this was right up his alley. Neat pictures and a great story.
