“I have a gigantic head with long pointy teeth, and a great loud roar.
I’m a huge ferocious hunter. I am . . .
A little boy pretends to be different dinosaurs–and even a baby dinosaur just hatching from his shell–until his mother joins him with a snack and plays the role of mother dinosaur.
In spare words and vibrant illustrations, a young child mimics the actions of several different dinosaurs as he imagines he is one of them. After each spread showing the boy pretending, readers turn the page to find each dinosaur the boy imagines. Anna Grossnickle Hines's ability to showcase a child's perspective makes I Am a Tyrannosaurus perfect for toddlers who love dinosaurs.
ANNA GROSSNICKLE HINES is the author of more than fifty books for children, many of which she also illustrated. She and her daughter, Sarah Hines-Stephens, collaborated on a collection of board books about Bean the cat and his puppy friend, Soup. Ms. Hines lives in Gualala, California.
