T. Rexes Can’t Tie Their Shoes | Book Review

T. Rexes Can’t Tie Their Shoes is an adorable children’s book that takes you from A to Z of animals. It is fun, creative and a great way to learn the alphabet! – Momma Braga


Alligators can’t pick apples, bees can’t ride bicycles, and Cheetahs can’t chew bubble gum….

No one is good at everything, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying! Follow a hilarious alphabet of animals, and see all the things they CAN’T do but kids CAN, such as performing magic tricks, playing hopscotch, and riding roller coasters. Along the way, young readers will learn that it’s okay if they can’t do everything; they can still have a LOT of fun.


T. Rexes Can’t Tie Their Shoes is a bright, funny, and super-positive A-to-Z book that every child will love at story time! It is a fun, creative and hilarious story exploring each letter of the alphabet.

We love the twist of having different animals do things that they wouldn’t be able to do. The play on the letters is brilliant! The book offers a great bonus as it explains some of the amazing things these animals CAN do, adding inspiration from the world of wildlife.

For this #MelAndNikkiReview we give this book 10 T. Rexes out of 5! We are roaring with excitement to have this story in our reading lineup. Nikki loves reading this story to me and I love being the one to hear it. This book is great for parents and teachers to help them learn the alphabet. Also for young readers to practice their reading skills. A must read!
