Look out! Here comes Rex! Children who love to construct — and those who love to destroy — will relate to this kid-pleasing tale that builds to a smashing finale.

Gizmo, Sprinkles, and Wild are fed up. Every time they build something with their blocks, Rex wrecks it! Whether it’s an out-of-this-world rocket, a magical heart, or the biggest, strongest, most awesomerific castle ever, Rex sends it crashing down with a “Rawr!” (and sometimes a sheepish“Rawry!”?). Isn’t there any way to make playtime fun for everyone? With Rex-size humor, Ben Clanton explores the challenges of friendship, the benefits of working together, and the joys of destruction.

Baker & Taylor
A rollicking tale for exuberant youngsters who love both construction and destruction features little dinosaur Rex, who smashes his way through his long-suffering friends' block buildings, testing their playtime fun and friendship. By the creator of Mo's Mustache.

We read and read and read this book. My 2-year-old was a big fan. The fantastic characters -- a dinosaur, a robot, and a rabbit unicorn -- do the ordinary tall of building with blocks. How do you deal with someone wrecking your tower? Is it okay to ever wreck a tower?
I seriously think my kid is better about thinking of others when he plays blocks now.
