From the Publisher

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1–Tiny's name says it all. He is the smallest in his T. rex family, simply giving a friend a hug is hard because of his disproportionately small arms. A cast of anthropomorphic dinosaur family members offer advice on a range of topics from math to sports, giving Tiny time to plan a strategy, get stronger, and practice, practice, practice, until an accidental flight experience drops him into the perfect opportunity to give a hug. Digitally colored and wildly fantastic, this is a sweet and satisfying read. From his father, Tiny learns that Rexes are thinkers and love math, he gets lost in his mother's desk drawer, but finds that she admires his kindness and creativity, he learns the importance of practice from his Ping-Pong–playing brother and sister, and he discovers on his own that he should not practice a hug on a cactus. While each family member shares ideas about learning and doing, it is Tiny who learns about caring and the positives of independent, creative thinking to achieve the impossible. Verdict a solid purchase for libraries with readers who simply live for the next dinosaur book and an engaging storytime selection.—Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TX.


"Readers will root for bighearted, small-armed Tiny." —Publishers Weekly

"Wins for compassion and for the refusal to let physical limitations hold one back." —Kirkus Reviews

"Takes the familiar hug story and expands it with the acknowledgment that not everybody hugs big, but everybody can hug big enough for their friends." —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Hi! My name is Jonathan and I'm an author of children's books.

Some of my books are silly, some of them are sweet, some of them are a mix of both... and many of them have to do with food (I'm making myself hungry right now thinking about it). I grew up LOVING books of all kinds (I still do) and I'm so so happy I can spend my life writing stories that kids of all ages can enjoy.

One of the best parts of reading is finding books that we can enjoy over and over again. I found many through the years, and I'm still discovering new ones. I hope one (or ALL) of my books end up being special for you... or none, if they aren't quite your style...the most important part is finding something YOU love.

So happy searching and happy reading!

Thanks for stopping by and have a spectacular book-filled day!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, relatively short bedtime story with excellent illustrations.
By kdunlap18 on March 10, 2019
What a sweet little story! The book is not too long, or too difficult for young readers. My 5 year old really enjoyed reading this book to me, and my 2 year old loved the illustrations.
T-Rex is a new bedtime favorite in our house.
