A little Pterosaur lives on top of a rocky mountain, where his mother teaches him to be kind and to always help others in need. One day, a huge Tyrannosaurus falls down the mountain and is injured as he tries to catch the little Pterosaur. Remembering his mother’s lesson, the little Pterosaur decides to take care of the injured Tyrannosaurus. As a result of his fall, the Tyrannosaurus temporarily loses his sight, and asks, “Who is there?” The Pterosaur hides and answers, “I am a Tyrannosaurus.” The fifth title in this acclaimed Tyrannosaurus series, I Am a Tyrannosaurus, delivers a heartwarming story about being kind and helping others with vivid, brightly colored illustrations and endearingly drawn characters.

We received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.

You know A and I have really enjoyed these stories from this publisher because well they have a good moral within them. 
In I am a Tyrannosaurus we are introduced to a Pteranodon family who love their baby very much and give him good advice. They raise him to be very kind so one day when a Tyrannosaurus comes to get him and is hurt the Pteranodon takes of care of him. He knows that the Tyrannosaurus could eat him but he throws that to the side to help him recover from him getting hurt. Yet at the end the Pteranodon remembers what his father said about flying high so he isn't caught. 
The reason I had to give this book a three is because of the formatting. Not sure what is going on with these books the words in a sentence will not be on the next page but two pages over. Then it will continue with the story line. For example: When you fly high, (turn the page) you won't even have to worry about the nasty, scary Tyrannosaurus." 
the Tyrannosaurus turned around. Then, with the fish in his mouth, he charged toward the young Pteranodon." Wait, what just happened? Like that whole sentence didn't go together so then you have to turn the page and it all comes together. 
Overall A liked the story even if we did read it out of wack.
