1 - Tyrannosaurus Wrecks by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen. This is just such a fun, clever rhyming picture book about a mischievous, overly exuberant young T-rex who can't quite get with the program at school with the temptation to wreck being what it is. It introduces some obscure dino types, iconically illustrated by Zachariah Ohora (Wolfie The Bunny) and is a sweet little microcosm of kids working out their group dynamic in the classroom. This is a great read aloud as well- snappy verse with perfect meter!
2 - Wood blocks - Always a great gift (even if kids have a set, you can make bigger and better things with more blocks!), and blocks (and knocking them over) factors into the story. The primary colors of this set look so great with the cover art!
