Overview

This sixth title from the acclaimed Tyrannosaurus Series delivers a heartwarming story about the value of true communication

A very long time ago, dinosaurs lived all over the world. They were various colors, shapes, and sizes, and spoke different languages. One snowy winter, with his skillful use of words, Tapejara almost tricks a Tyrannosaurus to its death. A weak Tyrannosaurus meets three friendly Homalocephale and they save his life, even though they do not understand each other's languages. They become good friends and start communicating with their hearts. One day, while picking up red berries for the Tyrannosaurus, Homalocephale meets Albertosaurus, who is hungry and speaks the same language as the Tyrannosaurus…. I Really Love You shows that real communication is more than just language and words, and demonstrates the value of heartfelt communication. As always, Miyanishi makes readers laugh and cry in this engaging story.

Reviews

"Addressing contemporary issues of sacrifice, friendship, and vulnerability through these prehistoric creatures, the book teaches readers that love can overcome barriers and differences. The humanness of the dinosaurs illuminates the power and strength the "language of the heart" can have. A fun, heartfelt story you'll really love." —Kirkus Reviews
