TINY T. REX AND THE TRICKS OF TREATING

Publisher: Chronicle Books
Get your little ones excited for their first trick or treat experience with the Tiny T. Rex’s six tricks of treating. Tiny T. Rex shares all the best tips and tricks to making the most of your trick-or-treating experience. If you can’t decide which costume to wear, try them all on…just not all at once.
Tiny T. Rex and his friends offer silly and helpful ideas to remember when trick or treating whether this is your child’s first time going out or not. Practicing door knocks and doorbell ringing, wearing the proper cold-weather gear, knowing the good treats from the bad ones, and the best one, trick-or-treating with friends.
My favorite rule is the one that reminds kids to say “Thank you!” because those two little words mean a lot. The book ends with a final reminder to share their treats. The friends all visit a sick dinosaur friend at the end and share some of their goodies from their night of trick-or-treating.
This board book is the perfect introduction to Halloween for toddlers who may be apprehensive about going trick-or-treating. The combination of informational facts with silliness will put nervous toddlers at ease and get them excited for the big night.
Tiny T. Rex has three other books in his series in case your toddler falls in love with this adorable dinosaur and his friends.
