Tiny T-Rex and the Impossible Hug

Still image for this video
Tiny wants to give his sad stegosaurus friend Pointy a hug, but his arms are too little. His sister and brother say he just needs practice.

This sweet friendship story shows a little dinosaur going to great lengths to hug his best friend even though his tiny arms make it almost impossible. Tiny T. Rex and the Impossible Hug shows a child motivated by empathy to make every effort to cheer up his sad friend. It also shows someone determined to not let his physical limitations hold him back, which is a great model for our children.

The Dinosaur Who Has Lost His Roar

Still image for this video
Sid enjoys scaring the other dinosaurs with his mighty roar. They don't find it so funny. Sid scares his friends Spike, Ross and Ellie with his big ROAR!

After lots of roaring, Sid develops a sore throat and the next day, when he tries to scare his friends, he can only cough and croak! He spends a whole week getting better and realises that he shouldn’t have played jokes on his friends.

When he is feeling better, Sid plans to make things up with his friends but finds they are all gone. Giant footprints lead him to a Tyrannosaurus Rex who has his friends! Can Sid save the day? Will his voice have recovered? Will even his mightiest roar be enough to frighten such a massive dinosaur?

What lesson has Sid learned?
A fun book that is well rhymed and has some funny moments. See if you can join in with the repetition.
