" Another entry in what seems to be an increasingly crowded field of "how to behave in the library" books. It's a cute idea but has a couple issues others have already brought up. " said.

" Tess gets a timeout in the library, but during timeout she opens a book and out climbs a T. Rex, who proceeds to wreak havoc all over the library and let loose all sorts of other characters from books.Fun illustrations. Would be a good book to read with kids and have them try to predict what would happen next. " said.

" This is a fantastic tale of imagination and the many worlds that books can take you to. I like that it's set in a library and the author reinforces that you cannot be rough or loud or destructive to books. The shouting, wild actions and yelling is not appropriate for the library, but that can be discussed while reading the story. And our girls liked that Tess ends up being like her Mom, telling the T. Rex to take a time out when he acts beastly with the books. " said.

" "No Beastie Behavior in the library..." says Mom.A little girl finds a T Rex in a book and they have adventures in the library together.This books' tired library tropes are dull.It seems like a publisher somewhere said, "we need more books about dinosaurs and libraries. Let's throw in cowboys, pirates, outer space, castles, and undersea creatures to make it more interesting. Something for everyone!"Meh. " said.

"I was not impressed. It felt that the text was trying to rhyme and very much not succeeding. The unattended child in timeout in a LIBRARY did not sit well with me in the least. (In case you haven't figured it out, librarians are NOT baby-sitters.) The adventures would have been fun, and the girl's attempts to keep the books taken care of would have been nice, but I was too distracted by the text and how it was laid out on the pages. Not the best book for me, but I'm sure some children will like it." said.

"No T. Rex in the Library is cute story about Tess, a little girl with an active imagination. After she is sent to time out for misbehaving in the library, Tess soon begins to imagine that she is riding through different sections of the library on the back of a destructive T. Rex. She admonishes the T. Rex to not knock over and rip up library books and soon sends him to time out for "beastie behavior." This is a fun book that can be used to introduce younger children to the different sections of the library and proper library etiquette. Creative and colorful illustrations." said.

"Another children's library book by Toni Buzzeo. It is not my favorite book by Toni who has written better picture books for kids regarding the library. You have a little girl who is loud and willful, and has a mother who shouts across the library that she's now in a time out. Reading that out loud to students, they may think that's acceptable behavior in the library. The illustrations are beautiful, and the girl has an active imagination, but watching her trounce the library made me wince. Please read instead "Our Librarian Won't Tell Us Anything" and "The Library Doors", both fun reads for students." said.

"When Tess comes into the library, she is definitely not on her best behavior. Set on time out by her mom for her "beastie" behavior, Tess manages to knock over a pile of books and release a T. Rex from the bounds of a book. Now the dinosaur is tearing around the library, knocking over more books. Squid, knights and pirates join the chaos. When the dinosaur finally goes further on his rampage than even Tess can condone, she sets the huge reptile on a time out before putting him back inside a book.

This picture book could have a role in a book care lesson or introduction at the end of the school year. It could also be used in a discussion of writing ideas.
