Teddy the T-Rex learns a larger-than-life lesson about comparing himself to others in this dino-mite Level 1 Ready-to-Read story.
Teddy the T-Rex is jealous that his best friend Pete the Pterodactyl can fly. Pete can catch balls that fly high in the air, he can help the teacher with things she can’t reach, and basically, he just seems cooler than Teddy. But when Tina the Triceratops reminds Teddy of all the cool things he can do—like run really fast and roar really loud—Teddy ends up feeling much better about himself. Best of all, Pete gives him a Pterodactyl ride!
