I Really Love You by Tatsuya Miyanishi

Back in the days of dinosaurs, there were many varieties.  Some communicated well, some not at all.  In this story the Tyrannosaurus learns an important lesson:  Listen with your heart, not with your ears...

Museyon and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It's being published today.

A Tapejara offers to lead the Tyrannosaurus to the woods where he should be able to find some food.  It's a long walk and the Tyrannosaurus is getting weak, so the sneaky Tapejara tries to take a bite out of him.  He wasn't trying to help, he was wearing him down.  The Tyrannosaurus slaps him away and continues his food hunt.  He's amazed to see a forest ahead him and it rejuvenates him.

He finds three Homalocephale picking berries in the forest and he grabs them.  They barely make a mouthful and they manage to convince him by their actions to let them go.  They go find food for him and cuddle with him to make him feel better.  When an Albertosaurus shows up, he wants to eat them.  But their big new friend saves them.  Hearts can speak as loud as words.

I've been around people who don't speak the same language I do.  We still understand each other.  It's amazing.
