Find out how to babysit a dinosaur in How to Care for Your T-Rex, a very funny read-aloud picture book from writer Ken Baker and illustrator Dave Coverly.
There are a few important things to know about your pet T-Rex:
What does it like to eat? Your T-Rex will eat approximately 300 pounds of food each day. Where will it have space to exercise? Your T-Rex can cover fifteen feet in a single step. How do you brush its many teeth? Especially when those teeth are nine inches long.
And, most of all, how do you show your T-Rex that you love it? Get ready for a day full of giant adventures in dinosaur care!

Praise for How to Care for Your T-Rex
"Baker offers general guidance on how to keep a dino-pet (or many other sorts) fed, clean, and well-behaved . . . In loosely drawn cartoon scenes the illustrator tucks an inconspicuously diverse cast of small human figures—the children excited, the grown-ups mildly dismayed—around a humongous green Tyrannosaurus rex. A playful twist on an ever popular theme."--Kirkus Reviews
"Readers learn a T-Rex’s top speed and how the size of his tail and arms can have their pros and cons . . . Useful for those with pets or those who love funny dinosaur stories."--School Library Journal
